This is a wonderful multi-tasking side dish that you absolutely need in your life.
Here we have a stunning combination of purple Creamer potatoes, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, carrots, and toasted pecans in a sage-y garlic butter.
While there’s plenty to love about this simple side I can’t get over the slightly burnt broccoli, the sage-y garlicky pecans, and those potatoes.
Those potatoes? They’re called Chilean Splash, they’re The Little Potato Company’s most beautiful varietal of Creamer potatoes! These pretty little potatoes have all the classic characteristics of a Little Potato Company Creamer. They’re soft and tender with delicate skins, nutritious, and easy to prepare. What sets them apart? Their earthy flavour and lovely splash of purple on their predominately yellow skins. They’re just perfect for this dish.

This dish has a lot going for it. It’s incredibly easy to make – all you need is 15 minutes of active prep time (does it get any simpler than roasting veggies?) It’s pretty darn healthy and it’s delicious! Like the eat-it-cold-at-midnight kind of delicious. It’s also perfect for the holidays! The toasty, savoury pecans are pretty chic already, add a garnish of fried sage leaves to take the fanciness up another notch.
