  • 4 large russet potatoes, scrubbed and cut into wedges
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup vegan parmesan cheese, grated
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish, optional)


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it with olive oil to prevent sticking.
  2. Prepare the Potatoes: Scrub the russet potatoes thoroughly under cold water to remove any dirt or debris. Pat them dry with a clean kitchen towel, then cut them into wedges. Place the potato wedges in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Coat with Olive Oil: Drizzle the olive oil over the potato wedges in the mixing bowl. Use clean hands or a spoon to toss the potatoes until they are evenly coated with the oil.
  4. Season the Potatoes: In a separate bowl, combine the vegan parmesan cheese, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper. Stir well to mix the seasonings evenly.
  5. Coat with Seasonings: Sprinkle the seasoned vegan parmesan mixture over the oiled potato wedges in the mixing bowl. Toss the potatoes again until they are evenly coated with the seasoning mixture.
  6. Arrange on Baking Sheet: Transfer the seasoned potato wedges to the prepared baking sheet, spreading them out in a single layer to ensure even cooking.
  7. Bake in the Oven: Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake the potatoes for 30 to 35 minutes, or until they are golden brown and crispy on the outside, and tender on the inside. Be sure to flip the potatoes halfway through the cooking time for even browning.
  8. Garnish and Serve: Once the potatoes are done baking, remove them from the oven and transfer them to a serving platter. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley, if desired, and serve hot.
