Oxo roast potatoes

A syn free way to make delicious roast potatoes!

I kept seeing this recipe pop up in the various Slimming World Facebook pages that I follow, where everyone was raving about it! It’s a bit of a change to just spraying the potatoes with Frylight, and makes for a lovely moist inside and crispy outside.


My Recipe

Serves: 4
Healthy Extra:


  • 8-10 white potatoes (maris piper make nice roasties)
  • 1 Oxo cube, chicken or beef
  • Frylight


  1. Preheat oven to 180°c
  2. Chop each potato into 2 or 3 parts, depending on size
  3. Par-boil your potatoes in boiling water. When ready, drain and shake to rough up the edges.
  4. Pop your potatoes into a deep baking dish
  5. Prepare your stock. Once ready, pour the stock over the potatoes, so it covers around 2/3’s.
  6. Spray the tops of the potatoes with Frylight and season them lightly
  7. Cook in the oven until the stock has evaporated (around 1 hour)

Additional Info

If you've been cooking your potatoes for an hour or so and still seem to have loads of stock left, you can cheat a little and pour a bit out to speed them up!

    hiya can you use vegetable oxo stock or does it have to be beef or chicken?

      Hi- I’ve never tried it with veg stock I’m afraid! I would have thought it would work but I don’t want to promise anything without having tested!

    Does it need to be oxo or any beef stock cube?

    • theslimmingfoodie 20th December 2016 (6:56 pm)

      any beef stock would do 🙂

    Tried these they were really tasty! They did stick to my baking tray but i think it needs replacing 🙂 Thanks for the recipe

      Glad you liked the potatoes! Sorry to hear they stuck to the tray though- I need new baking trays too, never seem to be able to find really good non-stick ones!
