Meatless Lenten Recipe - Oven-baked chips with garlic and rosemary


chipsToday’s recipe contributor says of this tasty dish, “To be eaten as a main dish. However, they would also make a nice side dish to go along with  some vegetarian Falafel burgers.”

Oven-baked chips with garlic and rosemary

1 kg large potatoes
1 bulb garlic
olive oil
salt and freshly ground black pepper
some sprigs fresh rosemary

Cover a baking tray with olive oil and place it in the oven. Preheat it to 230 degrees C. Peel the potatoes, then thickly cut them into chips. Parboil for about ten minutes in salted water.
In the meantime peel the garlic and cut the gloves into halves. Remove the leaves from the rosemary and bash them up in the mortar. It might me less strenuous just to chop them. Use a chopping knife for that job.

Bake in the preheated oven for about half an our, until the chips are crispy and golden.
