Potato Wedges (ZenTri is Not a Cult)

So I made potato wedges tonight. Not because "everyone else is doing it", not because I'm a slave to some crazy cult, but because I FELT LIKE IT. Okay?

Anyway, these babies are supposedly awesome to eat while training or racing because they have calories, simple carbs, potassium, sodium, you know... the good stuff. And when you've been at it for hours on end you sort of get disgusted by the idea of anymore sweet foods (like gels and sports drinks). If you're drooling all over yourself at the thought of pizza during your race you might be super psyched to find potato wedges in your transition bag.

I made mine with *pretty* purple, yellow and red potatoes from the farmer's market. You can use whatever potatoes you want... I really don't care.


Step 1: cut your potatoes into whatever shapes you want

Step 2: put them into a bowl and drizzle some olive oil. Not too much! Seriously! Just coat them.

Step 3: Add your flavorings. I used sea salt, pepper and herbs de provence. Mix it up.

Step 4: Spread them on a baking sheet and place them in the oven at 400 for 30 mins or until golden.

Oh, and then you might want to make some hummus. Not because hummus is trendy, but of your own volition.

Mmmm. Hummus.

The side dish is kale with white beans, tomato and balsamic. Just a little something I threw together to make a meal out of my tatoes.

Rosemary would be good on your wedges if you're into that sort of thing. I personally only like rosemary in chocolate. So please don't share your rosemary wedges with me.

Love, Guru
