Servings 4 servings


  • 4 cups russet potatoes (about 4-5 potatoes, depending on size)
  • 2 tbsp olive or canola oil any cooking oil you have on hand should work
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/2 tsp salt more or less to taste
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper more or less to taste
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp vegan parmesan can sub for vegan mozzarella or any vegan cheese you have on hand


  • Peel and slice the potatoes into long, 1/2 to 1 inch thick slices (or desired fry shape).
  • Place the peeled and sliced potatoes in a strainer and run under cold water for at least 30 seconds.
  • Soak the potatoes in cold water for 1-3 hours (this is optional but lends to crispier fries. If in a time crunch, limit the time or skip all together).
  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Prepare a large baking sheet by coating with oil or lining with parchment paper.
  • Once potatoes are done soaking, strain, pat dry and place in a large bowl. Add in the 2 tbsp of olive or canola oil and toss to coat evenly.
  • In a small bowl, mix the garlic salt, onion powder, paprika and cornstarch. Pour over fries and toss to coat evenly.
  • Spread fries evenly on prepared baking sheet (make sure they are not overlapping/touching - you may need a second baking sheet if they don't all fit). Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 45 minutes, flipping halfway. If necessary, cook longer until desired crispiness.
  • Once the fries are finished baking, place them back in the seasoning bowl & toss in dried parsley, salt, pepper, minced garlic & vegan parmesan until evenly coated.
  • Serve with a side of ketchup, sriracha, spicy mayo, smashed avo or any of your favorite dips!
