Making crisps and dip for the Vigil

Standard

It’s election day again, with the promise of plenty car crash TV overnight, so we need snacks for the vigil.
I made my usual lemon and coriander houmous – with just a teaspoon of oil to keep the calories low. I also experimented with oven baked pepper crisps.

I sliced 3 medium sized potatoes up into fairly thin slices then soaked them in salted lemon water For a while in the fridge.  Then I turned them into a roasting dish, added 2 teaspoons of pepper, two teaspoons of spelt flour, one teaspoon of salt and 2 tablespoons oil. Once that was thoroughly coated, I put them in the oven @220°c

They might still have been a bit thick, but they are looking good. Early tests indicate they are definitely peppery enough.

Looking good with the houmous!
So it’s time to kill time till the polls close.
