When you're planning a quick meal to cook, thoughts of 'will there be enough?' and 'how long is this going to take?' run through your mind, almost all the time.
So below is your answer. These zingy wedges are delicious and tastier than any alternative. Great for meals, parties or just as a snack, in six easy steps.
6 baking potatoes
1 TSP (teaspoon) Cajun spice
1 TSP (teaspoon) chilli powder
4 TSP (teaspoon) smoked paprika
Big pinch of black pepper
Pinch of salt
2 tbsp olive oil
Square baking tray
How to create your wedges:
Start by cutting each potato in half. Then further cut each half, into 1cm slices. Now is the best time to rinse the slices, to remove any excess starch.
Into a suitable bowl, place all the spices, pepper and the salt. Add the slices and olive oil.
Using your hands, mix all the slices around until they're covered evenly, you can use a spoon if you want, to avoid getting messy.
Place the suitably sized greaseproof paper on your baking sheet, this is important otherwise the wedges will stick. Spread wedges evenly on the sheet, don't worry if some are piled up.
Place in the oven at 180°c (fan) for 15 minutes. After this time, remove from the oven and give the wedges a good shuffle to ensure even cooking. Put back in for a further 15 minutes.
To know if your zingy wedges are cooked properly, I always remove one special wedge and cut it in half, if it is nice and soft they're all done. If it feels a little hard, try a further 5 minutes back in the oven.
Et voila! Your Zingy Wedges are ready to eat. Mine are usually served on the side with a pizza, or you can enjoy them as a main.
