Oil-Free Baked Potato Fries

  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 45 mins
  • Total Time: 55 mins
  • Yield: 1-2 servings 1x



  • 1 medium sweet potato
  • 1 large Russet potatoes
  • 23 tsp your favourite herbs and spices (Eg. mixed herbs, smoked paprika, onion powder and garlic powder*)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • To serve:
  • Handful of rocket/arugula
  • baby spinach
  • cherry tomatoes
  • cucumber and smashed avo + lime


  1. To begin with, wash, peel your potatoes (you can leave the skins on if you prefer but I like to peel them, this is just personal preference so I’ll leave this up to you!) then thoroughly dry them using a paper towel or clean tea towel.
  2. Slice into your desired shape (wedges, shoestring…), I always go for a normal thick cut. Sprinkle on your choice of herbs and spices (+ salt and pepper if using) and evenly coat potatoes.
  3. If using an air fryer, all you have to do is toss the potatoes into the basket, turn on and ‘bake’ at 200°C/400F for 45 minutes or until golden on the outside and soft on the inside. I usually give the basket a bit of a toss at the 20-25 minute mark for even cooking.
  4. If using an oven, preheat at 200°C/400F, line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper and evenly spread your fries on, ensuring that they don’t overlap or touch.
  5. At the 20-25 minute mark, give your fries a flip and cook for an additional 20 minutes until golden and cooked through. Serve immediately with a side salad & guacamole! Enjoy.
  6. NOTES * I find that spices do a great job in coating the fries so try experimenting with smoked paprika or even a dash of curry powder! The flavour combinations are endless which makes this recipe an even better staple to make.
