Ingredients

Fingerling Potatoes

  • 1 3/4 pound fingerling potatoes washed, scrubbed and cut into equal sizes
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and black pepper

Chive Pesto

  • 1/2 cup fresh chives chopped, packed
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley chopped, packed
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice fresh
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

Roasting the Potatoes

  • Preheat oven to 425.
  • Place fingerling potatoes on a baking sheet and drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss to coat the potatoes.
  • Roast for 25-30 minutes.

Make the Chive Pesto

  • While the potatoes are roasting, place the chives, parsley, pine nuts, and garlic in a food processor. Process until finely chopped.
  • With the processor running, slowly pour in the olive oil.
  • Scoop out and place in a large bowl and add the lemon juice and 2 tablespoons of water and stir.
  • Leave half of the pesto in the bowl and put the other half in a small bowl.

Potatoes and Chive Pesto

  • Remove the potatoes from the oven and add them to the large bowl of pesto and toss to combine.
  • Serve with the additional pesto.

Notes

The calories for this are a bit off because you only use 1/2 of the chive pesto.  You can serve it with the rest of the pesto, but it really doesn't need it.  Save the pesto and use it on sandwiches! 
Nuts - you can use pine nuts, walnuts or almonds.
