Smokey Red Pepper & Chickpea Dip With Potato Wedges
Aw potato wedges, how I love you so. I think I might be 25% potato now but I don’t mind. They’re FODMAP free, cheap and filling, so they’re an ideal staple.
[Prep time: 5 Mins. Cook Time: ~45 mins. Total Time = 50 mins]
However many potatoes you like ( I used a lot!), just eye the spices accordingly.
1 tsp turmeric 1/4 tsp asafoetida 1 tsp sage 1 tsp cayenne pepper (if you are okay with spice) 1-2 tbsp olive oil Salt to taste
Chop the potatoes into wedges, roughly into eighths works well.
On a baking tray, sprinkle with the spices and sage, and a drizzle of olive oil.
Use your hands to mix it about, so all the wedges are coated in the spice. Then space them out, skin side down, so they aren’t touching.
Bake at 210°C for around 45 minutes, shaking occasionally so they don’t stick.
Once cooked through and golden, take them out the oven and season to taste. Serve with the dip.
