Servings 6 servings
- 2 lbs. russet potatoes (That's about 6 large potatoes)
- 1/4 cup Extra virgin olive oil + 1 Tbsp!
HOMEMADE JERK SEASONING:
- 1 Tbsp onion powder
- 1 Tbsp garlic powder
- 2 tsps cayenne pepper
- 2 tsps sea salt
- 2 tsps black pepper
- 2 tsps dried thyme
- 2 tsps brown sugar
- 1 tsp ground allspice
- 1 tsp dried parsley
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp ground clove
- 1/4 tsp ground cumin
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
Rinse and pat dry each potato and cut lengthways into halves and then in halves lengthways again, and then one last time----this should create a "wedge-like" shape. You should have about 6-8 pieces of wedges when done for each potato. Repeat until all potatoes are cut.
In a bowl, add together the jerk seasonings and olive oil, stirring until combined.
Add the cut wedge slices of potatoes into a large bowl and pour the jerk seasoning mixture atop, mixing everything together with your hands until wedges are full coated.
Transfer the wedges to the prepared baking sheet and bake for 35-40 minutes or until wedges are golden and crisp. NOTE: Test the doneness of potatoes by using a fork to insert into the centers. If it goes through easily, they are done.
Remove from oven and serve with a side of your favorite dairy-free sauce. My dairy-free Garlic Lime Sauce goes well with these wedges!
