Ingredients

  • 4 baking potatoes, skin on
  • 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
  • 2/3 cup aquafaba {This is just the liquid from a can of chickpeas. For more info, see here. For recipes that use up the chickpeas, check out the Aquafaba category on my site.}
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

Optional, for serving:

  • extra nutritional yeast
  • sea salt
  • smoked paprika
  • roasted garlic mayo {See Instructions for recipe link}

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375F.
  • Slice each potato in half length-wise, and then place cut-side down so it’s stable The continue slicing length-wise to create long strips of even widths.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, combine the nutritional yeast, aquafaba, and olive oil.
    Coat the potatoes in the batter and then arrange the potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet.
    Bake at 375 for 20 to 25 minutes until starting to get crispy and brown.
  • These are really, really good sprinkled with smoky sea salt and dipped into roasted garlic mayo. If you aren’t vegan or allergic to eggs, then you can just add some roasted garlic to your store-bought mayo.

Notes

Leftovers and Reheating

I think these are best fresh out of the oven. However, you can store leftovers in the fridge and reheat at 275F until warm.
