Baked Potato Wedges

Some days you just need it. Quick carbs that is.

I had seen this interesting recipe by the purple foodie which she had adapted from lottie + doof to get a stronger garlic flavour.

I like love garlic but 8 cloves of them? too much for me! but still I loved the whole idea of baking them and she seemed so elated with the results I just had to try the technique.

It was a smashing success! fantastic fries I absolutely loved them!

However I did change the recipe quite a bit;

  • I added a tablespoon of tomato soup powder – gave a great tangy tomato flavour
  • reduced the garlic to 3 cloves
  • used tapioca instead of cornflour – I prefer tapioca, it binds way better and faster than cornflour
  • Increased the quantity of potatoes greatly! used 7 medium sized ones without altering the proportion of any of the ingredients- perfect proportions.

The best part is, I could salvage almost 3 tbs of oil post baking! so not much really went into 7 whole potatoes. This was brilliant.

So thats it! great, great, great stuff! I totally recommend it to everyone who loves fries and has an oven. Seriously.

You can check out  the purple foodie or lottie + doof for the detailed recipe and techinque follow whichever version you prefer.

Honestly, didn’t need the kitchen paper to drain 😀

    OMG your wedges look sooo good! Now you’ve tempted me to make these again.

    I have to try tapioca flour. what else do you use it for? Why do you like it more?
