The most popular recipe on the blog is for a vegan roasted new potato salad with lentils. I remember having this beautiful light that day but taking hours to edit the photos until I liked them, and thinking it was too simple to share, but it was one of my favourite things to make that summer. I still make it now whenever I can get fresh dill. It went crazy on pinterest and was my first big recipe – I still see it pop up and people keep making it a couple years later (it makes my day every time).
This is an adaptation of that salad, using some late winter ingredients like rosemary and regular potatoes instead. It’s total comfort food, like rosemary roasted potatoes made into a meal with lentils and spinach mixed in with the warm potatoes. It’s topped off with a balsamic dressing and it’s a far cry from the mayo-laden potato salads of my childhood.
