Oven-Roasted Potato Wedges

Happy 4th of July everybody! I’m celebrating by playing games and watching 4th of july-themed movies/tv show episodes with my mom, eventually watching fireworks go off and eating some Hot Chick sandwiches with these delicious potato wedges !

It’s pretty easy to make these. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. For three people, we get three large russet potatoes, cut each into 8 pieces and place them in a large mixing bowl . Pour a tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil over the potato wedges and toss to coat. Now take a 1.13 oz. package of seasoning (I use McCormick Grill Mates Chipotle Pepper Marinade Mix) and pour it over the wedges, tossing until fully coated. Take a baking sheet and line it with aluminum foil, spraying the foil with nonstick cooking spray afterwards. Place the wedges on the foil and cook for 28 minutes, flipping them half-way through.

These potato wedges are so freaking delicious ! The chipotle coating gives it enough heat to notice without having to need something to drink and the potatoes are fully cooked. It’s also easy to change the coating to something else if you want to.

Take care y’all !

Spicy Peanut Noodles

If you’re looking for a quick dish to fix up, you gotta try this out !

The recipe mentions that it’s a 15-minute dish and while I think it took me longer than that, it was still pretty quick to prep and cook. I didn’t have the brown rice noodles at home that the recipe calls for so I used a package of fettuccine instead (guess I should be calling it spicy peanut butter pasta). The recipe gives you some options on what to choose and in the listed order for myself I chose extra-virgin olive oil for the tablespoon of oil, 3 tablespoons of low-sodium soy sauce, 1/4 cup vegetable broth, 2 tablespoons sriracha, 1 tablespoon of maple syrup and to use the optional chili-garlic sauce and ground ginger. The garnishes of chopped up peanuts and green onion slices add a little texture and color but you could skip them and still have a spicy, flavorful dish on your hands !

The Hot Chick

Whenever I want an easy vegan dish after shopping, this is one of the first things that pops into my mind:

I love the different levels of crunch from the lettuce, red onion slices, and vegan bacon bits and the patty has a pleasant level of heat to it. Quick tip, the amount of hot sauce called for is actually enough for two batches !

This recipe came from “Quick & Easy Vegan Comfort Food” by Alicia C. Simpson.
