Wairimu Muturi, better known as @cookingwithnimoh on Instagram loves to cook and travel. Born to a hotelier and caterer mother, this led to her discovering her passion for food early in life. She now advocates for clean cooking and clean eating.

Here is her special way on how to prepare baked potatoes:

 Baked potatoes ingredients:

500gm white potatoes, unpeeled

1 green bell pepper

4-5 garlic cloves, crushed

Preferred spices

1 tablespoon Spanish paprika

1 tablespoon black pepper

1/4 teaspoonful of salt

4-5 tablespoons cooking oil


Clean the potatoes thoroughly. Slice the potatoes into wedges and add them into a bowl. Preferably into 1/4 or 1/8 to bake faster and save time.

Add the spices, cooking oil, bay leaves, bell pepper and garlic into the bowl and mix well. Take a baking tray. Line it with aluminium foil or parchment paper and pour everything on the tray.

Make sure the potatoes are well coated with oil to avoid sticking on the bottom of the tray. Spread the potatoes evenly. As you do this, pre-heat the oven in the background for 10 minutes at 175°C.

Put the tray on the middle rack tier. Bake the potatoes using the Convectional Heat Setting at 220°C for 30 minutes. Check at 15 minutes to see if everything is okay and toss the potatoes if required.

Serve the baked potato wedges as a snack or side dish. Enjoy!
