Which Potatoes Are Best For Oven Roasting
My favorite potatoes when baking up a batch of these crunchy beauties is Red or Russet potatoes. The crisp up really well and I just love the flavor of these potatoes best.
Yukon Gold, in my experience, do better as mashed potatoes. They tend to be a little drier and do not roast as well. But, this is just my opinion so experiment a bit until you find what works best for you.
How Do You Make Oil-Free Oven Roasted Potatoes
You can make these spectacular spuds in 4 easy steps.
Yes, I know. Really complicated. But, let us proceed.
Start by preheating your oven to 450˚F.
Next, place your potatoes in a pot, cover with water, and boil them for about 5 minutes. You want them just tender enough to pierce with a knife or a fork, but not mushy. We’re not trying to cook them, but just soften them up a bit. This will let the potato crisp up on the outside, but stay soft and moist on the inside.
Once the potatoes are done boiling chop them into 1″ pieces and spread them evenly on your baking sheet. Now, just season and bake.
Pop them into a 450˚F oven and let them roast for about 30 minutes or until they start to brown. That’s it!
And, just like that, you’ve got delicious oil-free oven roasted potatoes!
Can I Freeze Roasted Potatoes
Yes! These potatoes freeze very well believe it or not! You can store them in a freezer bag. And, when you’re ready to eat just pop them into the oven or heat them in a nonstick skillet on the stove.
I like keeping a big batch of these oil-free fries on hand. They’re great for a snack, making hashbrowns, or a delicious breakfast hash using leftovers. The possibilities are endless.

Delicious Oil-Free Oven Roasted Potatoes that bake to a crispy golden brown. Lightly seasoned with only a little salt & pepper and super easy to prepare. These potatoes are the perfect plant-based side dish!
- 6 small russet or red potatoes
- salt & pepper to taste
- Preheat your oven to 450˚F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
- Place the whole potatoes in a large pot, cover with water, and boil for 5 minutes or until just tender enough to pierce with a fork or knife. Drain the potatoes, cut into 1″ pieces, and spread them evenly on the baking sheet.
- Sprinkle the potatoes with salt and pepper and place the baking sheet into the oven on the middle rack and roast for 30-40 minutes or until the potatoes start to get bubbly and brown.
- Remove from the oven and serve.
Put your potatoes into the pot with the water before it boils. You want to allow the potatoes to cook as the water heats up.
If you like your potates a little darker and extra crispy let them cook an extra 10 or 15 minutes. I like mine about 50/50.
