Emma JC Something that I learned just recently...

Roasting potatoes: it is best to parboil potatoes before roasting, baking or grilling, or at least soak them for 20-30 minutes first as there is an amino acid, in potatoes, that changes into a toxin called acrylamide when exposed to high heat during frying or roasting. Boiling, steaming or microwaving potatoes is the safer way to eat them.

Here are a couple of links... some more detailed some less:

this following link is not a veg site however it does describe it well

If you google parboil potatoes acrylamide you will find many more links.

I usually parboil them for about 5-10 minutes and then let them cool and then roast or bake them. They also cook more evenly that way and the coating sticks to them easily.

oil free French fries

Cut up a russet potato into fries and put in a bowl, add sea salt, garlic powder and paprika; shake the bowl to coat. Place the "fries" on a wire rack, the kind you use for cooling off cookies (the rack can't have a coating on it so make sure it's just steel). Put in oven, turn oven to 425 degrees F and cook for about 1/2 or a bit more, they will brown and the outside will puff. Serve with ketchup, I like to mix some hot sauce with the ketchup and I also serve a side salad or carrots and celery with it.
