Roasted Part 7: Potato Wedges

in Other, Sides

First off, just a reminder: Don’t forget to enter the awesome Larabar Giveaway!  🙂

And now onto the roasting (and seeing how it was 101 degrees here in Omaha today, I would say this is quite fitting).

I am officially a veggie roasting fool.  I am a firm believer that nearly every vegetable tastes even more amazing when it has been roasted.  I now find myself trying, consistently eating, and loving vegetables that I never thought I would like simply because they have been roasted.  Some of my favorite vegetables to roast include: green beans, radishes, asparagus, brussel sprouts, sweet potatoes, broccoli and cauliflower.  Pretty  much any vegetable in roasted form is delicious, though!

It has been quite awhile since I have dedicated a post solely to one vegetable, but let’s get back into it with another “Roasted Part *” post, featuring…

…”B” Size Potatoes!

Roasted Potato Wedges

Servings: 1 to 2

Ingredients

3 to 4 “B” size potatoes, red or gold
olive oil cooking spray
sea salt
black pepper
garlic powder
onion powder

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray.

2. Dice potatoes into one inch pieces.  I always leave the skin on.

3. Place the potatoes onto the baking sheet.  Spray the potatoes with cooking spray and sprinkle with seasonings.

4. Roast the potatoes for 15 minutes.  Remove from the oven and shake the baking sheet to rotate the potatoes.

5. Cook the potatoes for an additional 5 to 10 minutes, depending on how crispy you like them.

I generally serve my roasted potatoes alongside ketchup and mustard, but choose whatever dipping sauce you like.  Or, eat them plain!

These roasted potatoes make for the perfect side dish to any meal, especially sandwiches, but also make for a great breakfast accompaniment.  Lately, I have been addicted to eating them alongside huge salads for lunch.  Heck, I would even eat these for a snack! 😉

    I just made a big batch of roasted veggies too .. yummy! :-)
  • Em May 14, 2013, 7:47 pm
    Roasted potatoes like this are the best! Even leftover, cold out of the fridge. I usually add a little dried mustard powder to my spice mix as well. As for other roasted vegetables, you haven't had asparagus until you've roasted it, drizzled with a little garlic oil and salt... :)
  • jumpeatrun May 14, 2013, 8:00 pm
    I pretty much like any vegetable roasted - especially potatoes! But, the favorite would probably have to be brussel sprouts!
  • Erin May 14, 2013, 9:09 pm
    My fav vegetable to roast is hands down sweet potatoes. I also love roasted carrots- and you are going to think this is weird but roasted raisins are SOOO good!
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl May 15, 2013, 8:26 am
      Roasted sweet potatoes are amazing! And I will have to try roasted raisins. I like roasted grapes, so I think that I would like that!
  • Jen @ Chocolate Chips & Tricep Dips May 14, 2013, 9:49 pm
    My favorite roasted veggie is definitely cauliflower! I've even managed to convince my picky 5-year-old that they're just like french fries. :)
  • blonde hair blue eyed runner May 14, 2013, 10:10 pm
    I love anything that is potato! These look so yummy and now I want them. If only you could deliver to my house...
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl May 15, 2013, 8:27 am
      But the best part is that they are SO easy to make, so you don't even need me to make them for you! ;)
  • jessielovestorun May 14, 2013, 10:52 pm
    Will be making these along with dinner tonight :) :)
  • ahealthyhappyhome May 14, 2013, 11:12 pm
    You do roast some delicious looking food girl! I love roasting sweet potatoes in Coconut oil. Or Kabocha squash, or butternut squash. Lately though I've been all about roasted cabbage with balsamic. Yum!
  • Sara @ Nourish and Flourish May 14, 2013, 11:36 pm
    Oh gosh, I love ALL roasted vegetables! It's impossible to pick just one favorite, but a few of my go-to's include: sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, asparagus, zucchini, onions, and butternut squash. I haven't roasted white potatoes in ages, but I ate some amazing roasted baby reds at brunch on Sunday, and enjoyed them so much, I may try recreating them at home. Or, even better---I'll make your recipe! :)
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl May 15, 2013, 8:28 am
      I roasted butternut squash for the first time the other day. Let's just say...that is definitely going to be happening more often!
  • moderngirlnutrition May 15, 2013, 12:14 am
    These sound like healthy hash browns! Yum!
  • Lucie@FitSwissChick May 15, 2013, 2:05 am
    I LOVE roasted veggies and these I know I will LOVE!! I would totally eat them with a savory greek yogurt dip, hmm! I am a fan of roasted sweet potatoes and roasted butternut squash. So good.
  • Lissa May 15, 2013, 4:01 am
    Gotta love potato wedges :) There is something about roasted potato that just rules.
  • Michelle @ Eat Move Balance May 15, 2013, 4:17 am
    What are "B" sized potatoes? Smaller ones? I feel silly not knowing. I agree--roasted veggies is where it's at!! Love them!
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl May 15, 2013, 8:30 am
      Yes, they are the smaller potatoes. That is what they refer to them at the grocery store, but maybe it is just a Midwest thing.
  • Jan @ Sprouts n Squats May 15, 2013, 5:21 am
    Yum this looks good! I love roasting sweet potato and pumpkin but for something different broccoli and cauliflower are good too!
  • Becky @ Olives n Wine May 15, 2013, 5:43 am
    I'm new to this whole roasting thing... why did I wait so long??! My currently favorite veggie to roast is Brussels sprouts - so so good! I could eat way too many of the little green beauties if they are cooking this way :)
  • Her Happy Balance May 15, 2013, 6:20 am
    So simple but yet look great! I don't know why but I never think to roast anything, I need to start!
  • Alyssa @ Road to RD May 15, 2013, 7:51 am
    I love potato wedges! Thanks for sharing!
  • IHeartVegetables May 15, 2013, 8:26 am
    I've been roasting a lot lately, most recently tomatoes! I used them in soup and they were sooo good!
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl May 15, 2013, 8:32 am
      That sounds awesome. Roasted tomatoes are amazing, but adding them to soups is an even better idea!
  • Laurie @ Love, Laugh, Laurie May 15, 2013, 8:59 am
    I 100% agree with you, roasted veggies are the absolute best! I've never though to roast radishes before, but I trust you, so that is happening!
  • megbek May 15, 2013, 9:06 am
    These sound amazing. Roasted veggies FTW all the time! :) I'm checking out that radish recipe ASAP, wooooo!
  • Pam May 15, 2013, 10:25 am
    Roasted potatoes are the best!
  • jessiebearwhat May 15, 2013, 11:19 am
    Yessss, you think just like me. I seriously roast everything I can get my hands onto. Just so good!
  • Dixya @ Food, Pleasure, and Health May 15, 2013, 11:52 am
    I feel same way about roasted veggies!
  • Brittany May 15, 2013, 1:05 pm
    Potatoes and Brussels sprouts are my TOP two roasters!!! Potatoes are always a hit though.
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl May 15, 2013, 1:28 pm
      Ahh, yes..those are definitely two of my favorites! Anyone who thinks that they don't like brussel sprouts definitely has not tried them roasted!
  • Rebecca @ Blueberry Smiles May 15, 2013, 1:56 pm
    yummy, making me crave potatoes!
  • Alex @ Cookie Dough Katzen May 15, 2013, 2:49 pm
    I totally agree with you on the roasted veggies. I don't think there's a vegetable I don't like, especially roasted! The potatoes look awesome. Currently, I'm loving roasted Brussels! So good!
  • Sami May 15, 2013, 3:24 pm
    potato wedges are so stinking good. have you ever tried seasoning them with ranch seasoning? oh myyy. <3 xo.
  • Slim Sanity (@Slim_Sanity) May 15, 2013, 3:41 pm
    I, too, am a veggie-roasting fool! ;)
  • Melissa Klotz May 15, 2013, 3:48 pm
    "potatoes" + "roasted" = heaven!
  • Georgia | The Comfort of Cooking May 15, 2013, 4:08 pm
    101 degrees?! Yikes! Did you roast them outside? They look delish!
  • Nicole @ FruitnFitness May 15, 2013, 4:14 pm
    I love roasted veggies! I think my current favorites are beets and sweet potatoes
  • Ang @ Nutty for Life May 15, 2013, 4:29 pm
    I love, love, love red skin potatoes. Especially when I put some rosemary on them with EVOO!
  • Meredith May 15, 2013, 5:51 pm
    yum yum yum! I love the looks of these potatoes, the size of them makes them look even more delicious! My favorite vegetable to roast is cauliflower. I could(and have) eaten the entire head in one sitting!
  • Lindsay @ The Functional Foodie May 15, 2013, 6:43 pm
    So glad that I just got potatoes because I am totally going to make this recipe. I love wedges. Delicious.
  • notplainsojane May 15, 2013, 7:48 pm
    I slice potatoes really thin and then roast them and broil for just a few minutes at the end! They crisp up nice. Potatoes are so versatile.
  • Salad Recipes May 16, 2013, 8:54 am
    It's looking different and amazing and trust me I'm gonna share this with everyone. You know what cooking a food is my favorite part time and I love cooking and specially when I try something like this.. Thanks. :)
  • Melissa @ Freeing Imperfections May 16, 2013, 3:34 pm
    Roasted veggies are the BEST! Once I figured out how to do it, I love any veggie roasted now. My favorite is brussel sprouts and carrots. I make roasted carrots by putting them in a bag (cut up) with some olive oil and garlic. I let it soak for a day, then cook it. AMAZING!
  • sugartoothfish May 16, 2013, 10:11 pm
    oh my goodness, those potatoes look too good! thanks for sharing!
  • Sarah May 17, 2013, 2:32 pm
    we roast potatoes more than i'd care to admit. so much better for you then french fries! if you're ever at trader joes, buy a jar of 21 seasoning salute (no salt, but AMAZING on roast potatoes). also, if you want amazingly crispy fries, check out a post on annie's eats- her method of soaking potatoes in ice water is time consuming but makes roasted potatoes even better!
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl May 18, 2013, 8:41 pm
      I actually have some 21 seasoning salute in my cupboard right now. I will have to try that out!
  • Jeremy DeHague May 19, 2013, 5:59 pm
    These tasty looking taters are right up my alley!;)
