These potatoes, inspired by the classic Swedish dish, boast a golden, crispy exterior while retaining a soft, tender center, making them an irresistible addition to any table. Infused with aromatic herbs and seasoned to perfection, they are a testament to the artistry of plant-based cuisine.

Preparation and Technique: Begin by selecting four large potatoes, preferably Russet or Yukon Gold, ensuring they are thoroughly washed and dried. The key to achieving the perfect texture lies in the meticulous slicing technique. With a sharp knife, delicately carve thin slices across each potato, ensuring they remain intact at the base. Pro tip: placing chopsticks or wooden spoons on either side of the potato helps prevent slicing all the way through, facilitating an impeccable presentation.

Seasoning and Flavor Enhancement: To imbue these Hasselback Potatoes with depth and richness, drizzle them with premium olive oil, allowing it to seep into the crevices and infuse every bite with luscious flavor. Embrace the pungent allure of minced garlic, generously scattering it among the slices, ensuring its essence permeates the entirety of the potatoes. A symphony of salt and pepper harmonizes with the earthy notes, elevating each mouthful to gastronomic heights.

Baking and Culinary Alchemy: As the potatoes recline upon a parchment-lined baking sheet, they embark on a transformative journey in a preheated oven, attaining a golden hue that tantalizes the senses. Forty-five to fifty-five minutes of patient baking yield a spectacle of crispy edges and velvety interiors, a testament to the alchemy of culinary craftsmanship. For a symphony of flavors, consider basting the potatoes with additional olive oil midway through, ensuring they emerge from the oven resplendent and succulent.

Presentation and Garnish: As the timer chimes its triumphant melody, remove the Hasselback Potatoes from their sanctuary of heat, their allure heightened by a sprinkling of fresh herbs. Thyme, rosemary, or parsley, finely chopped, bestow a verdant crown upon these culinary marvels, enhancing both their aesthetic appeal and aromatic bouquet. Serve these tantalizing treasures piping hot, their fragrance a prelude to the gastronomic indulgence that awaits.

Vegan Hasselback Potatoes


  • 4 large potatoes (such as Russet or Yukon Gold)
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, minced
  • Fresh herbs (such as thyme, rosemary, or parsley), chopped (optional)


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
  2. Prepare Potatoes: Wash the potatoes thoroughly and pat them dry with paper towels. Place each potato on a cutting board.
  3. Slice the Potatoes: Using a sharp knife, carefully make thin slices across each potato, about 1/8 inch apart, making sure not to cut all the way through. You can place chopsticks or wooden spoons on both sides of the potato to prevent the knife from cutting all the way through.
  4. Season the Potatoes: Place the sliced potatoes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Drizzle olive oil over the potatoes, making sure to get in between the slices. Season generously with salt, pepper, and minced garlic, ensuring the garlic gets into the slices.
  5. Bake the Potatoes: Transfer the baking sheet to the preheated oven and bake for about 45-55 minutes, or until the potatoes are golden brown and crispy on the edges. You can baste the potatoes with additional olive oil halfway through the cooking time to ensure they stay moist and flavorful.
  6. Serve: Once the potatoes are cooked through and crispy, remove them from the oven. Garnish with fresh herbs if desired, and serve hot.
