Servings: 4 people
Calories: 256kcal


  • Oven or Air Fryer
  • Large Mixing Bowl
  • Small Bowl
  • Baking Tray (if using oven)
  • Parchment Paper (again, if using oven)


  • 4 large potatoes yukon or russet
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp black pepper freshly ground
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tbsp olive oil light


  • Preheat your oven (if using a conventional oven) to 475ºF or 246ºC.
  • Wash well, dry, and chop your potatoes into thin wedges, across the length of each.
  • Add potatoes to a large mixing bowl. Mix all seasoning in a small bowl, then pour over your potatoes.
  • Massage potatoes and seasoning, so as to cover every inch of your wedges.
  • Pour olive oil over your potatoes, and continue massaging into potatoes.
  • If using an oven, place your potatoes on a baking tray over parchment paper. Cover in foil, and bake for about 10 minutes. Then, remove foil, and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes, or until potatoes are crispy and golden brown. If using an air fryer, toss potatoes into the basket, and fry for about 25 minutes.
  • Serve with extra paprika, and your dip of choice. Enjoy!
