healthy no oil crispy roasted potatoes


Golden Crispy Roasted Potatoes without a single drop of oil. Easy, healthy, low calorie and virtually fat-free!


  • 900g / 2 lbs potatoes , see notes
  • 80mls / ⅓ cup aquafaba , the liquid from a can of chickpeas
  • 3 tablespoons semolina , cornmeal can also be used but make sure it isn’t too course. Semolina is not gluten-free so be sure to use the cornmeal option if you need to keep this recipe gluten-free
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  • Preheat oven to 450°F
  • Peel the potatoes and cut into chunks. Timings here are based on a medium potato being cut into about 5 pieces. Make sure all pieces are pretty even.
  • Place the potatoes in a pan, cover with water and bring to a boil. Once boiling the should take about 5 – 6 minutes to become just fork tender. As soon as they do, drain through a colander then leave for a few minutes to steam dry before returning to the pan.
  • Line a baking tray or roaster with parchment paper or a Silpat. This is essential because no oil is used.
  • Add the aquafaba and semolina to the potatoes, put the lid on the pan and shake vigorously a good few times to rough up the potatoes, then dig in with a spoon and stir them around a bit to get the potatoes slurry that has settled on the bottom to coat them thoroughly.
  • Tip the potatoes onto the lined tray and spread them out so they are not touching each other then season with a generous amount of salt and freshly ground pepper.
  • Place in the hot oven and cook for 25 minutes. Remove, flip them all over then return to the oven and cook for around another 20 minutes or until a lovely golden brown. The time will vary a little depending on your oven and the type of pan you are cooking them in.
  • Serve immediately.


Using the right kind of potato is really important when it comes to great roast potatoes. A high starch content is necessary to get a lovely fluffy inside and a crusty exterior. Russet potatoes are ideal or Maris Piper in the UK. And even though they aren’t really classed as a high starch potato, Yukon Gold work well too.
