Healthy Air Fryer Potato Wedges + Seasoning
For the potato wedges:
- 2 russet potatoes
- 2 tbsp avocado oil, divided
For the seasoning:
- 3/4 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1/4 tsp onion powder
- 1/4 tsp mustard powder
- 1/4 tsp dried ginger
- 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, (spicy and optional, omit if desired)
- 1/8 tsp allspice
- Clean and dry potatoes. Cut them in half and then slice the halves into wedges. Each potato should make about 12 wedges. Place the wedges in a large bowl and drizzle with 1 tbsp avocado oil. Toss to coat.
- Preheat air fryer (if yours preheats) to 400° Fahrenheit and set it to cook for 15 minutes.
- Add the potato wedges to your air fryer basket. Keep them in an even layer and leave a little bit of space between each wedge. You may need to cook the potato wedges in 2 batches depending on your air fryer size. Keep the bowl you had the potatoes in out, you'll use it again.
- Cook the potato wedges for 15 minutes, flipping with tongs halfway through.
- While the wedges cook, make the seasoning mixture by combining the ingredients in a small bowl or ramekin. Wipe out the bowl the raw potato wedges were in with a paper towel to remove any moisture.
- When the wedges are cooked, dump them back in the bowl. Drizzle with 1 tbsp avocado oil and toss to coat. Sprinkle the seasoning all over the wedges and toss to coat again.
- Serve and enjoy!
