Roasted Fingerling potatoes are some of the best to roast. It’s hard to beat them topped with a tangy chive pesto.

Ingredients

1 1/2 pounds fingerling potatoes (that's the size of bag they normally come in)
2 Tablespoons olive oil
Big pinch of salt and pepper
Chive Pesto:
1/2 Cup fresh chives
1/2 Cup fresh flat leaf parsley
2 Tablespoons almonds or pine nuts (opt.)
1 large garlic clove
1/2 Cup olive oil
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
Pinch of salt
Helpful Equipment:
Food processor (mini one works well also)

Directions

1) Slice potatoes in half and toss with olive oil, salt and pepper.

2) Lay potatoes out onto a baking sheet in an even layer.

3) Bake potatoes at 425 degrees for 35-40 minutes, turning every 10 minutes or so.

4) Meanwhile, add all pesto ingredients except olive oil and lemon juice to a food processor.  Pulse a few times to combine.

5) Drizzle in olive oil and continue to pulse until it’s a coarse paste.

6) Stir in lemon juice and set aside.

7) When potatoes come out of the oven, add to a bowl and toss with a few tablespoons of pesto.

8) Serve with extra pesto on the side!
