    Spiced wedges with cheesy baby leaf greens

    This delicious combination of creamy sauce with sweet and smoky paprika makes the most of in-season potatoes and greens 

    • Vegetarian
    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 35 minutes
    • Total time: 50 minutes

    Serves: 4


    4 large baking potatoes, cut into wedges
    2 tbsp olive oil
    1 tsp smoked paprika
    2 x 200g packs Waitrose Baby Leaf Greens
    1 onion, finely chopped
    25g butter
    25g plain flour
    300ml semi-skimmed milk
    60g mature Cheddar, grated  


    1. Preheat the oven to 220°C, gas mark 7. Place the potato wedges in a large bowl with 1 tbsp of the olive oil, the smoked paprika and some seasoning and toss until evenly coated. Spread the wedges out onto a baking sheet so they sit in a single layer. Bake for 30-35 minutes, turning halfway through cooking, until crisp and golden brown.

    2. Meanwhile, using a sharp knife, remove the tough central stalks from the baby greens then finely shred the leaves. Heat the remaining 1 tbsp oil in a wok or large non-stick frying pan. Fry the onion over a medium heat for 2-3 minutes, then add the shredded greens and fry for 4–5 minutes more.

    3. Place the butter, flour and milk in a medium saucepan. Over a moderate heat and whisking continuously, heat the sauce through until thick and smooth. Finally, stir through the cheese and season.

    4. Fold the greens through the sauce and cook for a further couple of minutes to warm through. Serve alongside the wedges.

    COOK'S TIPTry adding a teaspoon of English mustard to the white sauce to really bring out the flavour of the Cheddar.
