- 10 potatoes
- 75 ml vegetable oil
- 200 g (7 oz) purple cabbage
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1/2 tsp dried herbs
- 1/2 tsp black peppercorns
- fresh parsley
- fresh dill
Wash potatoes under running water and then scrub them with a brush or a metal sponge. Arrange the potatoes on a kitchen towel and let them dry. Cut each potato in half lengthwise and then into 5-6 wedges, in accordance with your size preferences.
Combine salt, paprika, dried herbs and black peppercorns in a mortar and ground them with a pestle. (You may correct the amount of spices to your taste).
Transfer the potato wedges to a plastic bag. Drizzle vegetable oil over them. Season the potatoes with herbs. Tie up the bag and shake to evenly coat the potato wedges.
Arrange the potatoes on a large sheet pan (covered with foil) in one layer.
Bake the potatoes at 180°C (356°F) for 20 minutes and then turn them to the other side and continue to cook for 20 minutes more. The potatoes should get a goldish tint, crispy crust, and tender inside texture.
Meanwhile the potato is baking, wash a piece of purple cabbage, fresh parsley and dill under running water. Chop the cabbage coarsely.
Arrange baked potato wedges in serving bowls. Add the cut purple cabbage. Decorate the bowls with fresh parsley and dill. It’s better to eat at once while the potato is hot and tempting.
You can enjoy these potato wedges on their own or serve them with your favorite dipping sauce.
