Spicy smoked paprika wedges
These wedges smell seriously amazing when they are cooking – even better they taste great too! The paste also works well with chicken wings and drumsticks (adjust cooking times accordingly) and makes a lovely marinade for BBQs too. It isn’t a recipe – just something you can put together in a couple of minutes and makes your kitchen smell amazing (did we mention that before?)

- 1 tsp of smoked paprika/pimenton (we used sweet smoked, but you can also use semi-sweet or hot smoked)
- 2 tbsp of Mutti tomato puree (the double concentrate purees work best)
- 3-4 tbsp of oil (we used our Herdade Portuguese olive oil – but you can also use rapeseed oil too)
- 600 – 700g of uncooked potatoes cut into wedges, cubes, chips or whatever you fancy
- Juice of half a lemon
- Parsley to garnish (optional).
- Mix the paprika, puree and oil together in a dish
- Put your potatoes in a pan and add the paste
- Put a lid on the pan and shake for a few seconds to coat the potatoes
- Season with salt and pepper
- Add the coated potatoes to a pre-heated oven tray (oven set to 220°C/428°F) and leave for ten minutes
- Then turn the potatoes and reduce the oven temperature to 180°C/356°F and cook for a further 35 minutes or until they start to char
- Just before serving squeeze the juice of one lemon onto the potatoes and garnish with parsley (optional).
- If you are feeling like a bit more heat use our Gran Luchito smoked chilli ketchup instead of tomato puree – spicy!

The potatoes came from the Grainger Market.
