Easy Whole30 Crispy Potatoes (Vegan, Plant Based, Gluten Free)

AvatarPosted by

It’s a struggle that my boyfriend isn’t a fan of veggies – He loves meat. Like most carnivores, he IS, however, a fan of potatoes, so I will take what I can get! For Valentine’s Day I made one of his favorite sides – and I’m sharing it now. These Easy Whole30 Crispy Potatoes are not only crispy and delicious, but also actually super easy to make!

BTW – lots of paleo buddies of mine also make this dish – it just totally depends on how you feel about white potatoes. If you’re a paleo eater, you can also sub the white potatoes with sweet potatoes!

If you’re not a paleo dieter but following a Whole30 diet, you’re all good cause white potatoes are considered Whole30 compliant!

Ingredients

  • 1.5 pound russet potatoes, you can remove skin or not
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1.5 tablespoon potato starch
  • 1.5 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1.5 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1.5 teaspoon of Sea Salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

Dice the potatoes into 1-inch cubes. Try to cut all the potatoes in to about the same size so that they cook evenly in the oven later.

Place the cubed potatoes to a large bowl of cold water and soak for at least 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 400. Drain potatoes, and blot the potatoes dry with a clean towel. Drizzle the potatoes evenly with 2 tbsp olive oil, and toss until evenly coated. In a small bowl, mix potato starch, garlic powder, onion powder, sea salt, and black pepper together.

Add this mix of dry ingredients over the bowl of cubed potatoes, then toss until the potatoes are evenly coated.

Oil down a baking sheet with about 2 tbsp of olive oil. Move potatoes to a baking sheet. Make sure potatoes are not overlapping.

Bake for 15 minutes. Then remove pan from the oven. Now, with a pair of kitchen prongs, turn the cubed potatoes over. This might sound hard, but you can grab many at a time and just turn them over. You don’t need to be a perfectionist.

Change temp to 425. Then bake for 15 more minutes, or until the potatoes are brown around the edges.
Remove baking sheet from the oven. Let the potatoes cool for 3-5 minutes, to continue crisping up. Then serve immediately while still hot.
