The Perfect Potato Wedges

Updated: Aug 14, 2018

Potatoes are one of my favorite foods. They are incredibly versatile, full of essential vitamins and minerals, a healthy plant-source of carbohydrate and fiber, and crisp up beautifully in the oven. I wanted to share with you my full proof potato preparation method for the perfectly crispy yet healthy wedges!


pair your potatoes with your favorite fresh green salad!

I cook my potatoes at 425F (approximately 220C) for 35-40 minutes. The key however is: boiling your potatoes FIRST! I wash and cut them into my desired wedge shape, then place them in a pot of water, bring to a boil, and then let them cook until a fork pokes through easily.


Once you've drained the potatoes, toss them in olive oil (optional!) and your favorite seasonings. Some of mine include: greek mix (lemon peel, oregano, marjoram, basil), smoked paprika, curry powder, and nutritional yeast. The options are truly endless!


Greek spiced wedges + organic ketchup is a winning combination!

After tossing in oil and your spices of choice, place the wedges on parchment paper on a baking sheet. Space them out evenly so there's an even cook. Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes or until your desired crispiness is achieved. Remove, and let cool slightly, then dip in your favorite sauce! I love ketchup, vegan garlic aioli, or a drizzle of vegan sriracha mayo.
