Potato wedges

These are really great, mess free and can be done in the oven or on the braai. I have used basil pesto to make these but you can change the flavour to whatever you like really. They go perfectly with meat or chicken so serve them with you protein and a salad for a full on meal. (2 to 3 people)

What you need

4 medium potatoes
2 tablespoons basil pesto
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon water
Parmesan cheese

Tin foil.

The process

Heat your oven to 200 Celsius or find a hot part of the braai with indirect heat.

In a bowl mix together the olive oil, pesto and water.

Slice your potatoes into wedges and then spoon over the pesto mix. Use your hands to mix them about a bit to coat each wedge with the pesto mixture.

Place a layer of tin foil on your surface, cover with wedges in a single layer and the seal with another layer of foil, crimping the edges together tightly.

Bake for 40 minutes in an oven. If you are on the braai, turn after 20 minutes.

Split open the foil package and sprinkle over some parmesan.. serve as is in the foil container.

Simple enough and very good.
