Move over, french fries!

Here's a quick side dish: roasted potato wedges. Potatoes are good sources of complex carbohydrates, potassium, fiber, and vitamin C. Roasting them in a little olive oil makes them crispy like french fries, but healthier! Here's how to do it:

1.Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2.Wash potatoes, cut each into 6-8 wedges depending on size.
3.Put potato wedges in a large bowl and add 1-2 Tbsp of olive oil plus salt and pepper. Toss to coat the potatoes.
4.Arrange potatoes on a baking sheet and roast for 30-45 min or until they are crisp on the outside and tender inside.

Today's tip: Try roasted potato wedges instead of french fries.
