This is a surprisingly delicious side dish. The preparation is minimal and at 400F the potatoes are ready within 40 minutes. However, it is imperative to prepare the baking dish with cooking spray. You can grease the baking dish or add copious amounts of oil; in fact your potatoes could be swimming in grease and they will still stick to the dish without the cooking spray. Use fresh thyme leaves or dried, both work fine. I wouldn’t add basil though; basil would overpower the delicate flavours. Use fresh tomatoes with their skin on, the skin keeps the tomato pieces intact.

4-6 red or Yukon Gold potatoes with the skin on
2 cups fresh tomatoes, diced with the skin on
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
salt to taste
cooking spray
1/4 tsp thyme

• Preheat the oven to 400F.
• Spray a large baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.
• Scrub the potatoes and chop them.
• Wash and dice the tomatoes, do not discard the juice.
• Place the potatoes and tomatoes in a large mixing bowl.
• Add the oil, salt and toss to coat. Resist the urge to add more oil, it’s not needed.
• Sprinkle the top with thyme and bake for 35-40 minutes.
• Remove when the potatoes are tender.
