CHUNKY GAZPACHO & POTATO WEDGES



Potato wedges are my favorite way to eat spuds! They are extremely satisfying and filling and of course they compliment most dishes. For this meal I had leftover Gazpacho so I paired it with some golden wedges for a delicious supper.

POTATOES are nutritious and delicious! They are high in potassium, vitamin B6, copper, vitamin C, phosphorus, manganese, fiber, vitamin B3 and pantothenic acid. Potatoes are easy to digest, have anti inflammatory properties and because of their high potassium, magnesium, phosphorus and zinc content they are beneficial for good skin health.
