2 lbs fingerling potatoes, slice on an angle ¼ inch thick
5 carrots, cut the same as potatoes
1 bunch parsley, coarsely chopped
5 cloves garlic, finely minced
4 scallions or 2 leeks, finely chopped
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
freshly ground pepper
kosher salt to taste
3 tablespoons butter
a few sprigs of rosemary, finely chopped
To begin, finely dice the garlic cloves and set aside. Wash the potatoes and carrots before slicing, but don’t peel those potatoes! That is the beauty of fingerlings… Slice the tomatoes in half and chop up the scallions or leeks and parsley.
In a medium sized cast iron skillet (or sauté pan) heat the butter over med-high heat for a minute and add 4 cloves of the garlic (and leeks if you have them). Once the garlic becomes fragrant, add the potatoes and begin stirring. Add some parsley and continue stirring over med-high heat for another minute or two. Then, add the chicken broth and cover for 2 minutes. Remove cover and let the liquid dissipate before adding the carrots, (scallions if you have them), and salt/pepper. Keep stirring over med heat for another 10-15 minutes or until the vegetables and potatoes are almost done but still a little firm. Then add the cherry tomatoes, remaining parsley, rosemary, 1 tablespoon butter, and the remaining clove of minced garlic. Stir for another minute or two until tomatoes soften and then remove from heat and serve. If you don’t have carrots, replace then with summer squash or string beans! Enjoy!
