vegan potato wedges are a delicious addition to a lunch bowl, compliment to a meal or just to have as a snack! full of flavor and using only clean ingredients, this recipe is simple and easy to make.
it's never bad to spice up your routine and in this particular case, your baked potatoes. this is a fun but healthy recipe that doesn't take too much work and will be full of flavor.
paprika mostly gives a great color to the potatoes while the garlic and onion powder do the heavy lifting. my favorite way to enjoy these vegan potato wedges is by dipping them into ketchup.
however, i do have to say that they are just as delicious on their own. an important note is that this recipe is both kid and meal-prep friendly that everyone in your household will love.
frequently asked questions
they sure are! just because they are a carbohydrate, doesn't mean they aren't good for you. this recipe uses few additional ingredients and spices to make these wedges extra tasty, without any unhealthy ingredients. baking potatoes is also the healthiest way to eat them, definitely much healthier than frying them!
this is where a generous amount of olive oil spray will be your best friend. even if i don't spray the pan enough or cover it entirely, some of the potato wedges will stick. this will also cause the potato wedges to be less crispy. and it's no surprise that nobody wants that!
this is not a must-do for this recipe, in fact, i usually don't. however, i will say that soaking your cut potato wedges in cold water prior to baking will create a crispier texture.
sometimes i make these just to have a snack or if i don't want a whole meal. however, they pair great with burgers, grilled chicken and other roasted vegetables.
yes you can! they will obviously taste different than a regular potato but will still be delicious. the spices will hold up well with sweet potato and you can still prepare the recipe in the same exact way.
