Baked Potato

crispy baked potato

This is the best baked potato recipe ever! It makes enough to serve 4 people and can be used as a base for a variety of different meals. They taste delicious alongside many of my salad recipes.

Makes 4 servings


4 organic potatoes, scrubbed clean (I wash them in apple cider vinegar)

Olive oil, for rubbing

Himalayan salt

Ground black pepper


Pre-heat a fan oven to 200C/390F. Poke the potatoes all over with a fork and rub them generously with the oil. Season with salt and pepper and feel free to play around with other spices. To bake, place them on the oven rack and bake for 75 minutes. When ready, the inside should be soft and the outside super crisp.

Andy’s Sugar Safe® Tips

Be sure to eat the potato skins. They are a good source of soluble and insoluble fibre, and this may help constipation and lower LDL cholesterol. The fibre content may also support digestion and absorption of simple sugars.
