These Crispy Baked Fries are oil free and super tasty. Serve them with a Mushroom Bacon Veggie Sandwich for a filling and satisfying meal.
I make these Crispy Baked Fries often, as a snack or as a side to a meal and my family loves them! The fact that they are pre-cooked is what helps make them so yummy. When you roll them around in the spices the precooked ends break up and the fries even break into smaller fries. That is OK, it makes them super yummy and crispy.
I originally saw the idea for making pre-baked fries on The Brand New Vegan’s site. My take on the recipe is to just throw in spices that I like and by using nutritional yeast they are crispy and gluten free.
The recipe is listed below the video I recorded of me preparing them on the fly along with a Mushroom Bacon Veggie Sandwich.
*Please note* the ingredients listed are approximate. I adjusted the spices by taste so make sure to adjust them to your own tastes.

- I pre-bake my potatoes in a Potato Express because it takes only about 8-9 minutes to cook 5-6 potatoes.
- Nutritional yeast is the key to this recipe. If you have a Winco near by they have a great price on bulk nutritional yeast. Otherwise, online offers a good deal for large orders.
- You don’t have to spend a lot on smoked paprika but the really cheap stuff tastes bitter. Mccormick and Simply Organic are both very flavorful while also being economical. I buy both of these brands, organic only.
- I prefer to cook oil free when possible. To achieve crisp fries without oil I use a silicone baking sheet.
