Rosemary Wedges

7 Oct

Potatoes are probably my favorite root vegetable! They are extremely versatile and make up some of my favorite meals: mashed potatoes, baked potatoes, french fries (oh, my demise- I can never say no to a crunchy french fry! Limp ones need not apply)! They can be side dishes or main dishes! They can be added to stews, soups and make excellent salads. Ahh! AND they’re good for you! They get a bad rap mainly due to the toppings we enjoy loading them with! Minus the added delicious junk, potatoes are rich in Vitamins (C, B6), potassium, iron, copper AND promote good blood-pressure levels!Okay, enough with the potato endorsement! 😉

This is one of Geoff’s favorite recipes! Use as a side for veggie burgers or anything really!

[I’m still waiting for the recipe for homemade veggies burgers from my Roomie *ahem*]

They can be as crispy or soft as you’d like! But they do take awhile so be warned! It definitely depends on your oven!

Here they are about to go in the oven:

Rosemary Potato Wedges

 

Ingredients

  • EVOO- a couple of tablespoons, at most
  • Potatoes, scrubbed and cut into wedges (any kind will do- I’m partial to Yukon Gold & Red but these are just 4-5 regular baking potatoes)
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary (from a jar is fine too- just make sure to chop those, too)
  • 1-2 garlic cloves, minced (depending on how much garlic you enjoy- we love a lot!)
  • a couple of sprinkles of ginger and cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons of crushed red peppers
  • chopped fresh parsley, to taste (optional)
  • salt & pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Place the wedges in a bowl or plastic baggie. Add all of the dry ingredients and EVOO & either mix with your hands or shake all about in the bag! [I love this part!]
  3. Make sure all the wedges are evenly coated! Spread the seasoned potatoes in a single layer on your baking dish or sheet.
  4. Bake your potatoes until browned and to the consistency you prefer. Average is about 40 minutes! Occasionally, move the sheet around to ensure even baking!
  5. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce and ENJOY! 🙂

*Feel free to add any spices in your pantry that you have and prefer to make this recipe your own! For instance, I tend to add cayenne, ginger and garlic to most of my recipes because I love that spice combination!

& here they are before being devoured:

Riquísimo!
