oven roasted potato wedges

This is one of my favorite dishes to make when I need a healthy and easy-to-make side dish or a quick bite. It is perfect for lunch and dinner or even a savory breakfast, and very easily made! 

(Serves 2)

  • 5-6 potatoes
  • 1 tsp. paprika powder
  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1/2 -1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • a handful of fresh herbs (optional)

1. Wash the potatoes and peel them (optional).

2. Cut the potatoes into wedges, by cutting them in half long ways, then each half into 1/4 (long ways).

3. Place the wedges into a pot with water, and bring to a boil. Lightly boil for about 20 minutes, or until soft, then remove the water.

4. Place the potato wedges into an oven-safe dish and evenly sprinkle with the remaining ingredients. Gently mix, to evenly spread the seasoning.

5. Heat the oven to 180 - 200 C and bake the wedges for 30 minutes or until crispy and  golden.

The wedges are delicious by themselves or served as a side or with a yummy plant-based yoghurt dip.
