Why Fry Potatoes

1-2 (per person) Yukon Gold potatoes, scrubbed & cut into lengthwise wedges about 1” at the wide side

1-2 Tablespoons organic, virgin olive oil (adjust as needed for number of potatoes)



1 teaspoon (2 teaspoons fresh) whole dried rosemary leaves

1 teaspoon shoyu (or to taste)

1/16 teaspoon white pepper (or to taste)


If using rosemary, STEEP it in the olive oil for 2 hours or more, before starting the cooking

When starting your prep, ADD the shoyu and white pepper to the oil


STEAM the potatoes in a wide steamer, for 20 minutes

While steaming the potatoes, PREHEAT oven to 425º

SPREAD OUT the potato wedges evenly on a large baking sheet

BRUSH the wedges lightly with the olive oil

BAKE 15-20 minutes


SERVE immediately!
