Crispy Parmesan Potatoes with Romesco Sauce: A Summertime Sensation Recipe

Potato Perfection: Romesco & Crispy Parmesan Potatoes Recipe That’ll Make Your Taste Buds Dance!


Alright, buckle up, because we’re about to embark on a potato adventure that’s nothing short of spectacular. Ever heard of Romesco sauce? If not, get ready to meet your new best summer buddy. This sauce is so good; I practically want to put it on my morning cereal. But hold that thought, because today, we’re using it to level up our potato game.



Here’s what you’ll need for this delightful side dish that’ll steal the show at any summer spread:

Ingredients: Produce:

  • 1 Garlic clove
  • 2 tsp Garlic powder (because, well, garlic is life)
  • 750 g Potatoes, the new ones (we’re talking fresh and fabulous)


Baking & Spices:

  • 1 tbsp Cornflour (for that extra crispiness)
  • 1 tsp Smoked paprika (to bring the flavor party)
  • 200 g Red peppers, roasted (yup, roasted goodness)
  • 1 pinch of Sea salt & a generous grind of freshly ground black pepper


Oils & Vinegars:

  • 6 tbsp Olive oil (liquid gold)
  • 1 dash of Extra-virgin olive oil (because we’re fancy like that)
  • 1 tbsp Sherry vinegar (for that tangy zing)


Nuts & Seeds:

  • 100 g Almonds, toasted (crunchy goodness)



  • 50 g Parmesan (go for the vegan option if that’s your jam)



Now, let’s dive into the magic-making process:

  1. Preheat your oven to a temperature that screams ‘let’s get crispy,’ around 200°C.
  2. Cut those potatoes into delightful chunks or wedges, whatever floats your potato-loving boat.
  3. In a bowl, mix your potato pieces with cornflour, smoked paprika, a drizzle of olive oil, salt, and that fresh black pepper. Make sure those potatoes are getting cozy with these flavors.
  4. Spread those seasoned beauties on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and let them bake in the preheated oven for about 30-35 minutes, or until they’re golden brown and crispy. Flip them halfway through to ensure an even crispness. Trust me, you’ll thank me later.
  5. Now, let’s give some love to that Romesco sauce. In a blender or food processor, throw in roasted red peppers, toasted almonds, that garlic clove, garlic powder (double the garlic, double the fun), sherry vinegar, olive oil (both regular and fancy extra-virgin kinds), and, of course, the Parmesan, whether vegan or not. Blitz it all until you have a smooth, drool-worthy sauce that’s begging to meet those crispy potatoes.
  6. Once your potatoes are done and looking like crispy perfection, serve them up with a generous dollop—or, who are we kidding, a mountain—of that Romesco sauce. Your taste buds will do a happy dance, and you’ll be the culinary hero of your summer gatherings.


And voila! You’ve just created a dish that’ll have everyone asking for the recipe while they savor every crispy, flavorful bite. Enjoy the potato paradise you’ve just unleashed
