  • Pounds Baby Red Potatoes halved
  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • Zest of One Lemon
  • 2 tablespoons Za'atar
  • ¾ teaspoon Fine Sea Salt

For Garnish/Serving

  • 3-4 tablespoons Tahini Sauce
  • ¼ cup Pomegranate Pearls
  • 3 tablespoons Pistachios roughly chopped
  • Fresh Parsley chopped


  • Pre-heat the oven at 400°F and line the baking sheet pan with parchment paper (or foil).
  • In a large bowl, places the red potatoes, olive oil, lemon zest, zaatar seasoning and salt. Toss well to coat.
  • Now, spread the tossed potatoes on line baking sheet pan in single layer. Roaste for 30-35 minutes or until golden and fork tender (last 4-5 mintes of broiling gives nice crispy potatoes).

For serving

  • Take it out of the oven and allow it to rest for few minutes (you can dish out the potatoes, sprinkle parsley and serve as is).
  • Transfer on to a serving platter, drizzle tahini sauce, top with chopped pistachios and pomegranate pearls, sprinkle chopped fresh parsley and serve right away!


  • Be sure to scrub, rinse, and pat the potatoes dry before roasting to make sure they are a perfect consistency.
  • If you are using larger red potatoes for this recipe, then you will need to dice them into smaller sizes for roasting.
  • The seasoning should stick to the potatoes very well so be careful not to use too much oil.
  • Broil the potatoes the last minutes of cooking to create potatoes that are extra crispy and delicious.
