Chips. You know I love ’em. With most things really. Fish (well I am British), steak, eggs, on their own. There’s just something about a chip. It’s the white shirt of the food world, dressed up to the nines one day and comfy casual the next. Trouble is chips are traditionally made by frying in large amounts of oil. Even oven chips have an oily coating to help them crisp up. Not great when you want to eat more healthily, as I do.
Slimming World rave about their syn free method of making chips from scratch, they’re quite rightly proud that they have found a way to make chips available to those who want to eat food that is better for them. Trouble is, it doesn’t matter which SW recipe I follow for Syn Free Chips, I have never been able to produce a chip I actually want to eat. So after some research on the internet, I have devised my own way of cooking them. And I bloody love them.
To start with, I forgo the par boiling of potatoes, as I found it to be fussy and wide open for error (although if you can do it, and get good results, then more power to you!). Here is the method I use – I urge you to give it a go!
And there you go. No pans, no mess and minimal effort.
Give them a go – I hope you enjoy!
