Potatoes often get a bad reputation in nutrition media for being “high in carbs”. While Potatoes are in fact a vegetable, because they are so high in carbohydrates they really function more like your Starch choice, and so should be swapped for your rice or pasta!
But not all potato recipes are created equal…your fresh fries don’t count!
roast your potatoes with the skin on, in order to maintain all of the healthy fibre count in these spuds.
Starting off with some oil AND some water or broth in the roasting pan helps the potato flesh to get silky soft and the skin to get deliciously crunchy without gallons of oil!
