How To Make Savory Vegan Roast Potatoes
In order to properly make vegan roast potatoes in the oven, there are a few steps that you are going to want to take! If you have never made oven-roasted potatoes before, no worries, I am going to walk you through the steps right now!
First, you are going to want to ensure that your oven is on a HIGH setting. I am talking 400 degrees and above. You want to make sure that the potatoes are slightly crispy on the outside and cooked on the inside.
Next, you will want to use just the right amount of oil. If your vegan roast potatoes are smothered in oil, they won’t become crispy and they won’t taste the way that you want them to. This is an essential step. You want the potatoes to be lightly covered!
In addition, you want to ensure the roast potatoes are spread out in a single layer, to the best of your ability. If the potatoes are stacked on top of each other, they won’t cook the same way. If some of them overlap, that is okay, but as a general rule of thumb, you want to ensure that the vegan roast potatoes are on a single layer!
Finally, liberally apply the spices and salt to your potatoes for the best flavor. You want to add a little oil so that the seasoning can stick to them and they turn an orange color. You want to see that each potato is coated in order to achieve the best flavor for these vegan roast potatoes.
