Dietitian's tip:

Roasting replaces frying to reduce fat and calories. Herbs replace salt as the flavoring.

  1. 1 pound large red or white potatoes with skins, cut into wedges 1/4-inch thick
  2. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  3. 1 teaspoon rosemary or oregano


Heat the oven to 400 F. Lightly coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.

Soak the potato wedges in ice water for 5 minutes. Drain the potatoes and rinse thoroughly under cold water. Press between paper towels to dry. Transfer potatoes to a large bowl, pour the olive oil over the potatoes and toss to coat.

Arrange the potatoes in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes. Turn the potatoes over and bake another 5 minutes. Sprinkle with herbs. Return the potatoes to the oven and bake until they're brown and crispy, about 5 minutes. Serve immediately.
