The spicy taste of basil makes these potatoes sing with flavor. There’s nothing like a combo of tomatoes, basil, olives and capers to make almost anything taste better AND be better for us. Did you know basil can protect our body from a cellular level? Yes, it has flavonoids and volatile oils that have been studied to show cell and chromosome support from environmental damage. And basil is a good to protect from bacterial growth in the body as well.
Great news – this recipe is fast and easy, and cleanup is too. An aluminum foil lined sheet pan makes this breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner side a snap to prepare.
…and it wouldn’t be a bad idea to make this delicious potato dish a little a perfect nest for a poached egg!
Place the potatoes and onion on a sheet tray, toss with 2 TB of the olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Slide into a 400F oven and roast for about 30 minutes, or until the potatoes are crispy and brown around the edges.
When the potatoes and onion are roasted, scrape them into a large bowl, and add the remaining ingredients, including the remaining 2 TB of oil. Stir together gently and serve, warm, room temp or cold.
