I love this recipe for many reasons. One is the crunchy texture that’s difficult to get without oil. I also love how they’re so simple to make and require just 5 ingredients! I bake these potato wedges on a weekly basis.
Crispy Baked Potato Wedges (Oil-free)
3.3 pounds (1.5 kg) white potatoes
1 tbsp. white vinegar
1 tbsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. turmeric
Preheat the oven and 1-2 large pans to 450° F (230° C).
Peel the potatoes and remove any eyes or sprouts as necessary.
Slice the potatoes into eights, lengthwise (i.e. cut the potato in half 4 times the long way).
Place the potatoes, spices and vinegar in a large bowl. Toss the potatoes to coat them evenly.
Remove the hot pans from the oven. Stand the potato wedges on their curved sides so the cut edges don’t touch the baking pan.
Bake for 30 minutes. Test to see if the potatoes are crispy on the outside by eating one. Be careful, it’ll be hot!
If they aren’t crispy enough, bake them for 5-10 more minutes.
