Air-fry potato wedges with vegan cheese sauce

I’m back to posting recipes again here on the blog after a brief hiatus. If you follow me on Instagram, I started sharing very easy recipes there with straightforward how-to and what not. But with a new blog layout and more cohesive categories, it’s going to be very easy for you to find my recipes now.

So a month ago, I purchased an air fryer after some serious contemplation. I mean, I don’t want it to be another kitchen appliance sitting on the counter that’s hardly used. Waste not, want not is my mantra. So what made me cave in you ask? Just some crispy-on-the-outside yet buttery-soft potato wedges that continue to taunt me in my dreams.

Ha, dreams do come true! Sounds cheesy I know but guess what? to satisfy this insane craving, I have two back to back recipes for you today! So how does air-fry potato wedges with cheese sauce sound? I guess cheesiness served with gusto, eh?

One of the many struggles of a new vegan is how to fight the so-called cheese addiction. However, and like I said many times, becoming vegan now is a lot more easy than it was years ago when meat and dairy free alternatives are limited to non-existent.  While you can always buy vegan cheese from the grocery (my favorite is Miyoko’s), it’s pretty easy to make it. This vegan cheese sauce recipe is an offshoot of my vegan cheese dips posted here

I don’t really use oil in a lot of my recipes but certain dishes call for it so my rule of thumb is not to go beyond 1 tablespoon. Oil is empty calorie, it’s processed comparable to junk food, it’s basically fat that offers no nutritional value. I tried making these wedges without oil but they turned out flat and unappetizing.

With all of that said, here’s the recipe for both. I hope you enjoy it!

  • Can you ever go wrong with a potato dish? I think not. I love everything potatoes!

  • I bought a Philips Air Fryer last month, and have been trying to get all my favourite deep-fried snacks to work – nothing’s worked so far. I’ll try this over the weekend, and maybe fried onions or similar veggies instead.

    Oh my, these look divine. I keep contemplating an air fryer but I just don’t have space in my kitchen. Have you tried olive oil spray? I heard they work great with air fryer recipes

  • So glad that you have had better results with your air fryer than my friends did. They ended up returning theirs. Your potatoes came out great!

  • We got an air fryer for Christmas! I’m going to save this to share with my husband later.

  • I no longer have an Air Fryer and part of it is that I hate the smell of oil in my house. It drove me crazy even though I used the minimum amount. I love potatoes and if I still had one I’d try this recipe.

    Sounds/looks good! Where do you find miso paste? We’ve been looking for it and can’t find it!

  • That cheese sauce sounds and looks delicious! Perfect for dipping those potato wedges in! <3
