Coat wedges with olive oil, salt and pepper in a baking dish and bake at 180oC until golden and crispy for around 30 – 40 minutes – turning after 15 minutes. (NB kumara will only need 20 minutes or so). You can add crushed garlic and/or mixed dried herbs for more flavour if desired.
While the wedges are cooking, you can either fry the nuggets for a few minutes on each side in olive oil in a non-stick frypan, turning to brown evenly OR bake the nuggets in the oven, coated in olive oil, turning a few times for 20-30 minutes until golden.
While they are both cooking, arrange a selection of chopped colourful veggies on the side of the plate as the vegetable component (or make a salad for older children if desired).
Once nuggets and wedges are done, take them out using tongs and put onto a paper towel to drain off any excess oil for a minute or two. Serve immediately.
