  • 1 large baking sheet
  • parchment paper
  • 1 mixing bowl
  • Oven


  • 5-7 medium sized potatoes
  • ½ tsp Baking soda to add to water while soaking (optional)
  • 3 TBSP olive oil
  • 1/2 TBSP Cornstarch
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 1 TBSP Parsley
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 425 and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Scrub and prep the potatoes. Chop each potato into 8 wedges.
  • Place in a bowl and soak for 30 minutes in cold water mixed with ½ tsp baking soda. Make sure to drain well and pat dry.
  • Mix with the olive oil, cornstarch, paprika, pepper and salt and then spread them in a single layer on the baking sheet.
  • Bake at 425 for 20 minutes. Then turn the heat down to 375, flip potatoes and bake for an additional 18-20 minutes or until desired crispiness. Remove from the oven and lightly salt.


Make sure to place the wedges in a single layer on the trays. This way they will become nice and crispy.
