Sometimes speed food on Slimming World can get to be a bit of a chore but with a roast you can have loads of speed food, and not really nice you’re eating it! Roasted meat & syn free vegetables wouldn’t be complete without roast potatoes, right?
Just because we’re talking about Sundays, doesn’t mean you can only have these Syn Free Roast Potatoes on a Sunday. You can have them every day of the week if you like, especially as they’re syn free. They go well with our other Roast Dinner recipes:
Preheat oven, peel and cut potatoes
Let the oven preheat whilst you’re prepping your potatoes. Make sure to peel them well, and take out any eyes. If you prefer to leave the skin on – you can if you like.
Dicing them – you’ll probably want to keep them a couple of inches in size & try keep them as consistent as possible so they cook at the same rate.
Parboil your Potatoes
Rinse your spuds with some cold water, then place in a pan filled with water and season with plenty of salt. You want to bring them to the boil, and let them cook until they start to soften but they are still firm.
Drain & Dry
Drain them in a colander & leave them there for 5 minutes. This will let them dry out a bit. After the 5 minutes, put them in a bowl, season with plenty of salt then spray with plenty of Frylight. Toss them, then spray them again as you’re tossing them. They need to be very well coated.
Cook & Eat
Spray a baking tray with Frylight, tip out the potatoes and bake for 40 minutes at 200°C turning half way. If they look like they’re drying out half way, spray them with a bit more Frylight.
Whenever we need to replace oil in cooking we use Frylight. Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free! The Rapeseed or Olive Oil flavours are ideal for this Syn Free Roast Potatoes recipe.
