The combination of tomatoes and peaches is already a winner, and neutral potatoes hold form to make a pie. Serve alongside a simple salad for a light summer lunch.
Potato Pie with Roasted Tomato Sauce and Peaches
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
3 to 4 medium-sized red potatoes, cut into thin slices
6 Roma (plum) tomatoes
Fine sea or Himalayan salt to taste
Freshly ground pepper to taste
4 1/2 tablespoons tomato paste
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 small handful fresh basil
1 tablespoon packed fresh oregano leaves
2 teaspoons agave nectar
2 peaches, cut into thin slices
Preheat the oven to 375F. Lightly oil a 9-inch glass pie plate and evenly distribute the potato slices, covering the bottom and a little up the sides. Ensure there are two layers and no holes. Bake for about 15 minutes, until the potatoes are softened.
Meanwhile, slice the tomatoes in half and season with salt and pepper. Transfer the tomatoes to a baking sheet and, when potatoes are finished, increase the oven temperature to 425F. Bake the tomatoes for 20 minutes.
When tomatoes are finished, put them in your food processor with the tomato paste, garlic, basil, oregano, and agave nectar. Process until almost smooth. Scrape the mixture into a saucepan. Turn to medium heat and cook until thickened, about 4 minutes.
Spread the sauce on the potatoes (you’ll only use about half… use the other half as a dipping sauce for roasted potatoes… trust me). Top with the sliced peaches.
Bake for 20 minutes, until the peaches are softened and starting to caramelize. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting and serving, or serve at room temperature.
