Or you could try

Them on their own with just a shower of black pepper and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, with dips such as Tahini Hummus or red pepper and Spring onion dip. Alternatively, they can also be served as a vegetable accompaniment to meat, poultry or fish dishes when you want a potato dish with a crisp texture.
