Servings 3 people


  • Air Fryer


  • 600 gram potatoes
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne
  • 50 gram vegan cheese I used violife
  • 10 gram cilantro
  • 1 chili pepper cut in rings
  • salt to taste
  • 30 gram vegan bacon optional


  • Cut the potatoes in match stix the size of a fry. Place them in a bowl of cold water and let them sit for 60 minutes. Halfway through you rinse the potatoes and add new water.
    Soaking Potatoes
  • Remove the potatoes from the water and place them on a clean kitchen or paper towel to make them dry. Once dry add them to a bowl and add the oil, cayenne and smoked paprika powder. Mix well and add them to the air fryer basket. Make sure to not crowd the pan, they can overlap a bit.
  • Air fry them for 25 minutes on 200 Celcius. After 15 minutes you give it a good shake. The last minute you sprinkle the vegan cheese on top so it melts. Serve with sauce and toppings of choice. Here I added a garlic mayo sauce, chili peppers and cilantro. You can follow the instructions in the post to make them rainbow fries. Enjoy
