Plant-based Mini Baked Potatoes? Aren’t all potatoes plant-based? Believe me, my family typically loves to load these mini baked potatoes with lots of sour cream, cheese and bacon! These however are not those, these are a healthy alternative which are an awesome side to any dish, and are very simple to make. You probably already have all the ingredients in your house.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups halved mini potatoes.
  • 1 teaspoon paprika.
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt.
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil.

Instructions

First step is to preheat the oven to 400 degrees, then rinse potatoes in cold water. I like to cut the potatoes in half, but depending how big they are you can cut into fourths. I used half a bag.

Now it’s time to add the olive oil, paprika, and garlic salt. A perk to this mini baked potato recipe is that there are no set measurements. I’ve added some suggested measurements to help you but to be honest I just eyeballed how much of each ingredient to pour in. You do not want the potatoes to be drowning in oil, so just add enough to lightly coat them. Then toss.

Lay them out on the pan. They can be facing up, down, or sideways, it doesn’t matter. Bake until they are soft and a light golden brown. Usually takes around 15 minutes give or take.

Final Verdict

These plant-based mini baked potatoes are the next best alternative to french fries! They are so delicious and can be paired with any lunch or dinner. If you’re like me and like salty foods, you can always add more garlic salt after cooking!
