Hello my dearies!! So today is a bit of a tummy happy post as I just thought I need to share this really easy recipe that makes a delicious side to left over curry, sandwiches or roast from last night. I know that like me many of us don’t have time to be standing over a stove and making elaborate meals for lunch especially if you have kids around to protect from themselves! And sometimes we just want something nice to eat too other then microwave meals, frozen pizzas and all the other quick fixes for lunch we have to resort to.
So here is a really easy one for you guys who love fries but are tired of the frozen same cut boring ones from the superstores.
- Potatoes or sweet potatoes cut into wedges (I left the skin on)
- 1 tablespoon of butter/margarine
- 1 whole garlic
- Dried or fresh parsley whichever is available
- Olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Wash and cut your potatoes into wedges trying to keep them all equal in size so they cook evenly ( I don’t bother as I’m in a rush anyway)
- Take the whole garlic and chop the stem off enough to expose the tip of all the individual garlic pieces inside. Leave the skin on and wrap it in foil after you drizzle a tiny dash of olive oil.
- Season your wedges with salt and pepper and olive oil. I add a bit more salt as we aren’t using many spices.
- Spread them out on a baking tray along the garlic packet and bake for 25-30 minutes or until cooked at 200 degrees celcius. Make sure to flip them half way.
- Once done, take out the garlic from the foil and squeeze out all the soft roasted garlic out of its skin. In a saucepan add the butter, squeezed, roasted garlic, and parsley and cook for about 5-8 mins depending on how thick you want your dressing.
- Add it to your wedges, mix and enjoy.
Now I know there are so many recipes like this out there, as I didn’t invent this at all but rather used the same garlic sauce recipe I use for salmon and just added it to my potatoes. Give it a go guys as really you let the oven do the job while you can attend to your many jobs around the house. Till next time xx
