We made potato wedges last night using only raw ingredients and raw inspiration. Seriously, no recipe. It’s unusual for me to make up a recipe but the potato wedges turned out so well that I might just make a habit of it.
- Potatoes – allow one large or two medium per person – we used orla but any roasting-type variety would do
- Sea salt
- Paprika powder
- Chilli powder
- Olive oil
- Preheat oven to 200C.
- Cut the potatoes in half, then cut the halves into thick wedges. Season liberally with salt and pepper. Add a good sprinkle of paprika powder and chilli powder. Mix it all up with your hands until the wedges are well coated.
- Drizzle olive oil over, about one tablespoon per potato or a bit less if you are doing loads of wedges. Mix it all up again.
- Line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper (very important, otherwise they will stick). Place the wedges in one layer on the sheet. Bake the wedges for 40-50 minutes until cooked through, turning them over after about 25 minutes.
