Mashed, roasted, or fried, potatoes always hit the spot! Oftentimes people assume that potatoes aren’t a super nutritious food but you might be surprised to learn that spuds are a nutrient-dense vegetable. They are rich in antioxidants like vitamin C and other important nutrients like potassium and vitamin B6! These crispy spiced potato wedges have got to be one of our new favourite recipes. They are incredibly flavourful and perfectly crispy. Plus we created a perfect, easy-to-make dipping sauce to go with them!!
