    Serves: 6 

    • 1 kg (2 lb 4 oz) large potatoes
    • 1½ teaspoons sunflower oil
    • 2 tablespoons fresh wholemeal breadcrumbs
    • A pinch of cayenne pepper
    • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
    • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
    • 1 teaspoon paprika
    • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 1 teaspoon dried thyme

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Heat the oven to 220°C (425°F, gas mark 7). Scrub the potatoes, leaving the skins on, and cut each one lengthways into eight wedges. Place them in a large mixing bowl, add the oil and toss to coat the wedges thinly and evenly.
    2. Mix together the breadcrumbs, cayenne pepper, cumin, garlic salt, paprika, pepper and thyme in a large bowl. Add the potatoes and toss until they are evenly coated.
    3. Arrange the wedges in a single layer on a large nonstick baking sheet and bake for 35-40 minutes until they are golden brown and crisp. Serve them hot.
    4. Variation: serve the wedges as a snack with some low-fat Greek yoghurt for a dip.
