Potato Wedges (2)

These are the best and healthiest french fries you’ll ever eat—forget deep-fried fast-food ones that can contain over 20 g of fat in a small serving. Experiment and use any seasonings you like. You can cut the potatoes early in the day, as long as you keep them in cold water so they won’t turn brown.

1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Lightly coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.

2. Cut each potato lengthwise into 8 wedges. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Combine the oil and garlic in a small bowl. Combine the cheese and chili powder in another small bowl. Brush the potato wedges with half of the oil mixture, then sprinkle with half of the cheese mixture.

3. Bake for 20 minutes. Turn the wedges and brush with the remaining oil mixture and sprinkle with the remaining cheese mixture. Bake for another 20 minutes or just until the potatoes are tender-crisp.

3 large baking potatoes (about 2 lb), scrubbed
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp finely chopped garlic
2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp chili powder
3 Tbsp chopped parsley
