Oil free potato wedges

Postby EvilWombatQueen » Thu May 15, 2008 8:05 pm

Okay, this might be common knowledge for everyone. If it is I'll be incredibly embarrassed. But I found a way to make crunchy wedges with no oil whatsoever tonight and I'm really stoked!

What did I coat them in? Corn flour. I put a few tablespoons of cornflour and some spices in a bag, cut up the potatoes into wedges, threw them in the bag and shook it for a while to coat them. Then I just laid them out on aluminium foil skin side down on baking trays and baked them in the oven.

They're delish!

I used Mexican spice (pre-mixed in a jar), freshly ground black pepper and Herbamare (a herb and vegetable salt mix you can get at health food stores and supermarkets).

Just a caution: don't use too much corn flour. Just enough for it to stick to the potatoes and make a kind of batter with the potato juices. The wedges that had too much flour ended up a bit 'cakey'.

When I made them I was cutting out all possible fat, so I didn't use spray oil. It was the inability to use spray oil that made me experiment to find a way to make crunchy wedges without any oil whatsoever. I can't remember if I put some spray oil on the foil to make sure they didn't stick, though. I don't think I did but I could be wrong. Adding a little bit of spray oil would probably make them super-crunchy if a little bit of oil doesn't bother you.

thanks :) i made them about 15 mins ago and popped them in the oven with a bit of spray oil and chippy salt... considering red rooster is about a 30 second drive from my house, i don't mind the oil :lol: better to make them than go there! plus i made a much smaller portion than i'd get there. will see how they turn out soon :)
thanks darl!

Hi,

Potatoes are also good carbohydrates as long as they're not smothered in oil for roasting or butter if they're boiled. Try dry roasting potato wedges with a sprig of rosemary or a spoonful of cumin seeds. They'll taste so good that you won't miss the fat and if the oven is hot enough, they'll still be crispy.
