The idea for this recipe came from me destarching potatoes to make healthier French fries for my grandchildren and teaching a weight loss cooking class.

When soaking potatoes in water, the starch pulled out is replaced with water.  We know oil and water does not mix so the water acts as a barrier preventing the oil from penetrating into the potato.  This creates a crispy outside and soft interior French fry and  healthier potato for children lessening the neuron inhibitor effects especially in children with autism.

However, baked potato is a resistant starch food and good for losing weight because the body does not absorb the starch.  The key here to maximize this effect is to bake the potato and let it cool BEFORE eating.

Who wants to eat a dry baked potato? didn’t think you did, well nor do I.

Therefore, I applied the destarching principles I used in making French fries and ended up with a moist flavored baked potato that could be eaten cold and would aid in weight loss as well.
