I’ve mentioned these Slimming World Oxo roast potatoes a couple of times and the kids love these. I’ve served them with a traditional roast but also with Slimming World burgers. But let’s face it, you could serve them with Jam Roly Poly and they’d still be nice.
(Mmmm … Jam Roly Poly.)
Anyway, this is a really easy way to cook roast potatoes the Slimming World way and as much as potatoes soaked in goose fat are lovely, these are really nice too, but with a lot less calories.
- Oxo cubes x 2
- 250 ml hot water
- Spray oil
- Preheat your oven – I cooked these at 220°C
- Peel and cut your potatoes in half.
- Par boil potatoes, drain and chuff them up. (Lol, chuff.)
- Crumble 2 Oxo Cubes into a jug and pour 250 ml hot water on top. Stir.
- Put chuffed (I love that word) potatoes into a baking tray.
- Pour Oxo liquid into the bottom of the tray – the liquid should come halfway up the potatoes.
- Spray the tops of the potatoes with spray oil/Frylight and sprinkle with salt (optional).
- Bake for 45-60 minutes. The liquid should have been soaked up.
- You can turn the potatoes and crisp up the other side at this point, but this isn’t crucial.
I only had jacket potatoes in the house, but they worked well enough. Just use your usual type of potato.
Par-boil your cut up potatoes for 5-10 minutes
Crumble your 2 Oxo Cubes into a jug and add 250ml hot water – stir
Pour Oxo liquid into the bottom of your tray of chuffed roast potatoes
Note that I haven’t poured the liquid over the top of the potatoes
Spray oil over the top of the potatoes and I added a little Maldon salt for some extra flavour and crunch
Et voila! Served with a delicious Slimming World friendly roast chicken dinner. (NB. I know this doesn’t have enough speed food for a perfect SW dinner – this was in fact my son’s dinner who’s 11, I had more vegetables on my plate – his just looked prettier!)
These roast potatoes are syn-free on the Slimming World Extra Easy plan but I just eat 4 or 5, that seems to do the trick! I hope you enjoy make these potatoes – would love to hear how you get on!
