A Flavorful and Nutritious Delight

Potatoes, the humble yet versatile vegetable, take centre stage in this recipe for Loaded Wedges. They are not only a delicious and satisfying base but also offer a wealth of health benefits.

Potatoes are a rich source of complex carbohydrates, which provide a steady supply of energy to fuel your body. They are also packed with essential vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin C, potassium, and B vitamins, all of which are crucial in maintaining overall health.

The addition of smoked paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder to the wedges not only enhances the flavour but also offers additional health benefits. Smoked paprika is a great source of antioxidants, which help to protect your cells from damage and reduce the risk of chronic diseases. Garlic and onion powder, on the other hand, are known for their anti-inflammatory properties, making this dish a great choice for those looking to support their immune system.

The salsa component of this recipe is a powerhouse of nutrients. Red onions are a source of quercetin, a flavonoid that has been shown to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Yellow capsicum, or bell pepper, is rich in vitamin C, which is essential for a healthy immune system, as well as carotenoids that can help protect against certain types of cancer.

The salsa’s inclusion of black beans boosts plant-based protein, fibre, and complex carbohydrates, all of which are important for maintaining a healthy digestive system and supporting overall well-being.

The guacamole, made with creamy avocados, offers a wealth of healthy fats. Avocados are a great source of monounsaturated fats, which can help lower cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease. The addition of sweet chilli sauce and lemon juice not only enhances the flavour but also provides a touch of sweetness and acidity, which can help to balance the richness of the avocado.

Finally, the toppings of cherry tomatoes, red onion, and microgreens or alfalfa sprouts add a fresh and vibrant touch to the dish while also providing additional nutrients and fibre.

In summary, this Overloaded Wedges recipe is a delicious and nutritious meal that combines the health benefits of potatoes, vegetables, beans, and healthy fats. Whether you’re looking to support your overall well-being or simply enjoy a flavorful and satisfying dish, this recipe is sure to delight your taste buds and nourish your body.

Servings 4 servings



  • 8-10 potatoes sliced into wedges
  • 1 cup vegetable stock

  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

Additions when serving

  • cherry tomatoes
  • ½ red onion sliced thinly
  • 1 sml lemon quartered
  • alfalfa / microgreens
  • sweet chilli sauce



  • I prefer this step as it adds flavour to the wedges: pressure cook the wedges for 8-10 minutes in 1 cup of vegetable stock.
  • Move wedges into an air-frier for 20 minutes at 200℃ or bake in the oven at the same temperature for 30 minutes, turning over halfway through; add time if it is still not crispy.
  • Once cooked, sprinkle with combined paprika, garlic & onion powder and pepper, shaking through.


  • While the wedges are cooking. Mash the avocados in a large bowl then mix through the sweet chilli and lemon. Place in the fridge until wedges are ready.


  • Combine all ingredients in a non-stick frying pan. Add small amounts of water while cooking to prevent dryness.

Combining all

  • Lay wedges on a large serving plate or spread evenly over individual plates.
  • Sprinkle red onion over wedges, then add the salsa, followed by the guacamole. Top with alfalfa, then add in all other ingredients around the plate. Enjoy!

Normally you might find me behind the coding of our sites but over the years I have become much more concerned about what has been happening in the kitchen as well - families do that for all of us don't they? Background experience is in Account Management and Web Development but as my passion has grown for WFPB so has my desire to speak out.
