In my Slimming World group lately there has been a lot of excitement about something called ‘OXO roast potatoes‘! This is because the recipe I’m about to share is a ‘Syn-free’ way to have ‘roast’ potatoes – one of those gorgeous but calorific elements to a roast dinner. So now you can have the same roast potato effect without the fat!

To make these little stunners for yourself, here’s what you need:

  • Potatoes – peeled and cut into quarters. Prepare as many as you want – I always make a tray full!
  • 2 cubes of beef OXO stock
  • 250ml hot water
  • salt
  • Low fat cooking spray – I use Fry Light
  • Method:

  • Pre-heat oven to 220 degrees
  • In a pan, par boil the potatoes for about 10 minutes. I sometimes go a little longer – I like to be able to put a knife into the potato and find it soft enough to jab, but not too soft that it is mushy
  • Then, drain your potatoes and shake the colander a bit to scuff up the edges
  • Get a deep sided baking tray and put the potatoes in. Spray the potatoes with Fry Light
  • Sprinkle salt over the potatoes
  • Then, boil a kettle. Measure 250ml of hot water and crumble two OXO cubes into it
  • Stir until dissolved then pour the OXO into the bottom of the pan – pour at the side so it doesn’t go over the top of the potatoes
  • Put into your heated oven for around 45 minutes. When you remove the tray, you’ll find that the potatoes have soaked up the stock which gives them a lovely indulgent taste!
  • Serve as a side dish to your roast dinner!
  • OXO roast potatoes

    They are a bit of a faff with having to par boil, then roast (as opposed to mash which is just boiling) so they take longer too but they are definitely worth the effort!

    I love the creativity us slimmers use to be able to enjoy the things we love without all the calories! This is a great little recipe to have to wow your family they would never know that these potatoes are made in a way that doesn’t involve oil or fat!
