Roasted in the oven with just a little bit of oil makes them nice and crispy on the outside, but fantastically tender on the inside.And that lovely spicy coating with paprika and a bit of chilli kick, a super winner!
How TO make healthy potato wedges in the oven
A few tricks, and you get to enjoy some seriously yummy potato wedges every single time. I don’t bother peeling the potatoes, but I do give them a good rinse before cutting them.
- make sure to pat dry the potatoes after rinsing them
We want them completely dry before coating them with oil and spices. This will ensure they stay crispy and they bake evenly.
- don’t overcrowd the baking tray, otherwise the wedges will be way too soft, and not crispy on the outside
- the wedges should be ready in about 50 minutes, but do keep an eye on them every so often, and give them a good shake
Shaking the wedges around will ensure they bake evenly on all sides.
You can go for as much spiciness as you can handle, apart from the cayenne pepper, you can add any chilli powder you have, or crushed chillis.
BEST way to SEASON the POTATO WEDGES
The best way to season the wedges is adding them to a re-seal-able bag together with the oil and spices, and giving the bag a good shake. In this way, all the wedges are evenly coated, and not a single one had more seasoning than others.
I use this technique with pretty much anything that needs seasoning, chicken pieces, potatoes, etc and it works really well.

- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

Wash the potatoes with cold water, pat them dry with kitchen towel, then cut them into wedges. You can peel the skin off, if you wish, but I prefer it on.
Place the wedges in a re-sealable plastic bag together with all the other ingredients, except for parsley.
Seal the bag and give it a good shake, so that they wedges get coated nicely.
Preheat the oven to 220 degrees C.
Place the wedges onto a roasting tray and roast for 50 minutes until crisp and golden-brown.
