Spicy Potato Wedges

Here's a recipe that's really quick and easy, but guaranteed to taste more amazingly flavoursome than any potato wedges you can buy in the supermarket.  All you need is:
  • Potatoes (about 2 or 3 per person)
  • 1 chicken stock cube
  • sunflower oil
  • chilli powder, paprika, sea salt
1. Peel the potatoes and chop them as shown in the photo, ignoring my weird looking hand.  Try to get as thin wedges as possible.

 2. Prepare the roasting dish.  Drizzle some oil into the dish, and then add the stock cube and pour a little oil over that.  You should then be able to break it up with your fingers into powder.

3. Add the chilli powder, paprika and salt, and spread them and the stock powder evenly over the dish.

 4. Add the potatoes and move them about with a spatula until they are evenly coated.  Put in an oven preheated to about 200 degrees for 40 minutes-an hour, moving the potatoes occasionally.

For photos of the cooked wedges, see my previous post as I forgot to take a photo while they were still in the dish.  They go with lots of different meals and are great with dips!
