Just popped them in the oven and left to do their magic. Turned out divine with an interesting kick from the veg stock. Very hassel free.

For extra low fat roasties, 200/300gms potatoes peeled weight,par boiled in herbs of your choice.Drain potatoes, spray liberally with 1cal spray roast in hot oven. Check potatoes after 20 minutes, give a few more sprays, I usually do about another 10 sprays, continue cooking until potatoes are golden and crispy. Can't give calorific value but believe me these are megga low fat. This weight is for per person.

Right as rain, i was surprised at how good these little tatoes were with such few ingredients- i added fresh rosemary to mine to give them a bit more flavour!

I agree with the other comments - I either put mine in straight from raw on a silicone sheet to prevent sticking, with a fine spray of olive oil, or part boil and shake to rough uo before hand... delicious!

Mu mum had gallstones for years and she had to follow a really low fat diet. She would always parboil and the place on thed roasting rack around the meat after brshing with a tiny bit of oil. A very delicious alternative. I usually parboil my spuds and then shake them in the colander after draining to rough the surface up a bit. Then I brush them with olive oil and bake - they are lovely, even if I do say so myself.

i do this anyway but without the stock. The potatoes stick a bit but i use a fish slice to turn them and it doesn't matter if they stick a bit because you then get cripy bits. If you are really worried about them sticking, use a non stick roasting tin.

This is the first time tried this recipe after looking for low calorie,low fat recipes. Absolutely delicious real alternative without using fat. Really crispy and wonderful flavour. Only concern is recipe says serves 2 but when I put this weight of potatoes in my calorie counter it doubled what recipe said serving was. Are you sure its only 2 servings and not a miss print.
