Roasted Potatoes and Asparagus

Currently, the Coronavirus has taken over the world and most of us are on quarantine. Being creative and resourceful in the kitchen is vital right now I am here to bring you simple recipes. My new Roasted Potatoes and Asparagus with Greek Dill Yogurt is here to save the day. This recipe calls for everyday ingredients that you probably have in your pantry and freezer/fridge right now.

Roasted Potatoes and Asparagus

This Roasted Potato and Asparagus recipe only includes 7 ingredients, not including salt/pepper. When I build simple recipes, I never include these ingredients in the 6 because most people always have this on hand. Not only does it requires minimal ingredients, but you only need a baking sheet to cook. Healthy and easy is my kind of recipe.

Notice that cute little hand reaching for a potato? That is my almost 2 year old, Eleanor grabbing a taste during my shoot. She kept licking all the Greek yogurt dressing off each potato, haha. Simply precious!

Roasted Potatoes and Asparagus

What you will need for this recipe:

  • Baby Potatoes
  • Asparagus
  • Bacon or Turkey Bacon
  • Lemon Juice
  • Salt/Pepper
  • Greek Yogurt
  • Fresh or Dried Dill
  • Chicken Apple Sausage

The Greek Dill Yogurt really gives this dish so much life. It adds a great layer of tangy and tart. It is for sure game changer. However, I know that some of you may not like Greek yogurt so you can sub either homemade mayo (dairy free option) or sour cream for the sauce.

What to serve with this Roasted Potatoes and Asparagus Dish:

This dish can serve as a main course if you are low on ingredients and need something hearty. This dish will certainly fill you up without any additional protein option. However, if you are wanting to serve this as more of a side dish instead of a main, then below are a few ideas:

  • Pork Chops (Throw some pork chops on a sheet pan and cook along with the asparagus and potatoes). Super easy and quick meal!
  • Steak
  • Grilled Chicken Breast
  • Ribs
  • Poached Eggs

Notes

  • Dressing and potatoes will last in the fridge for up to one week.
  • If you don’t have these exact potatoes, no worries. Feel free to use any potatoes on hand. For example, you can use new potatoes or large red or yellow  potatoes instead. Cut them into 1 1/2 in chunks.
  • Make sure to buy thicker asparagus pieces. They seem to hold up better than thin.
  • If you only have frozen asparagus, feel free to take it through the same process and add to the pan frozen. it made need an additional 5 minutes or so of roasting.
  • To make this vegan or vegetarian simply remove the bacon and yogurt. For the dressing use a vegan mayo. 
  • Feel free to sub my homemade mayo or even sour cream for the Greek yogurt.
