Home-made Oven Chips

A delicious and healthy alternative to ‘fried’ foods, when you fancy something tasty yet filling and satisfying.

Serves 4

Ingredients

4 large Maris Piper potatoes, skin, wash and slice into chunky ‘chip’ slices
Sunflower oil or spray (or coconut or olive oil) to rub into potatoes (approx. 4-6 tbsp)
Salt & pepper to taste
Optional:  smoked paprika (for Cajun style chips)

Methods

  1. Wash and dry potatoes with paper towel
  2. Spread potatoes out evenly on a flat baking tray
  3. Spray or rub oil potatoes evenly
  4. Sprinkle with salt and pepper (you can add smoked paprika for added cajun smoked flavour)
  5. Cook in the oven for approx. 40 minutes on 190oC, mixing the potatoes midway
  6. Enjoy with some home-made tomato ketchup (recipe below).

Alternatives: You can use sweet potatoes in place of white potatoes or to mix it up (1/2 sweet/ 1/2 white).

You can enjoy your chips on their own with ketchup or simply served with a side salad or as an accompaniment to your main meal (tofu, tempeh, fish, meat, lentils, lasagne, pasta bake etc.).

 

Home-made tomato ketchup (will keep in the fridge for 1 month)

* 1 tbsp sunflower oil
* 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
* 1/4 cup honey, maple syrup or sweetener of your choice
* 1 tsp Himalayan salt

* 4 tbsp tomato puree
* 2 stock cubes (melted in 2 tbsp of hot water)
* 1/2 tsp of mixed Italian herbs
* 1/4 tsp of black pepper

Put all the ingredients in the blender and mix until it has become a smooth texture.
