Wedges are a, well, not quick, but certainly easy side to many meals.

There’s one secret you probably haven’t been told though. A secret that turns potato into wedges. A secret that I will divulge here (I must thank my Mother for this secret, but you can just thank me).

The result is not just roasted potato in wedge shapes, but nice soft wedges in a crunchy outer shell.


8 potatoes
1 & 1/2 tablespoons oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon tumeric


Cut the potatoes into eighths (sometimes you can get 10 wedges out of a big potato). SECRET TIME – add these to a pot of water, bring to the boil and boil for 10 minutes. They won’t be cooked right the way through, but they will be nice and soft.

Remove from the heat, drain the water, and leave to cool for a minute. Stir in the oil, then sprinkle on the remaining ingredients; stir again. Chuck onto an oven tray, and bake at 200ºC for an hour. Once or twice turn them over and shuffle them around to ensure they cook evenly.

Add condiments, and enjoy.
