Vegan Baked Chili “Cheese” Fries with Garlicky Guac recipe

These fries are the perfect side to serve to friends with different eating preferences. They are vegan, gluten free, and nut free!

How did I get that perfect “cheesy” flavor you ask. That is from a couple tablespoons of nutritional yeast, which is an incredibly nutrient-dense spice—perfect as a “cheesy” substitute in vegan cooking. 

Toss the fries in coconut oil for the crunch, chili powder for perfect flavor, garlic powder for garlicky-ness, and optional cayenne powder for the spice! Serve them with a bowl full of my delicious garlicky guac and amaze all your friends!

Yield: 4 servings

Materials

Chili "Cheese" Fries:

  • 4 medium sized russet potatoes
  • 3 Tbsp. coconut oil melted
  • 2 Tbsp. nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • pinch black pepper
  • pinch cayenne powder optional—for added spice

Garlicky Guac:

  • 1 avocado
  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • 2 garlic cloves finely diced
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • pinch black pepper
  • pinch cayenne powder optional—for added spice
  • chopped cilantro optional—for topping

Instructions

For the fries:

  • Preheat oven to 475 degrees F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper
  • Slice potatoes in half the long way. Lay each half on its flat side and cut 1/4 inch wedges lengthwise. (your fries should be shaped like capital “D”s)
  • Throw potatoes in a large mixing bowl. Drizzle with coconut oil and toss until potatoes are evenly coated.
  • Sprinkle with nutritional yeast, chili powder, garlic powder, sea salt, pepper and cayenne (if desired).
  • Toss again until spices are evenly dispersed across fries.
  • Lay fries flat on baking sheet, being careful not to overlap.
  • Bake for 35 minutes, remove from oven and flip fries. Place back in oven and bake for another 20-25 minutes, or until very brown and crispy.
  • Remove from oven and let fries rest on pan for a minute or two.
  • Transfer to plate and serve immediately.
  • Fries are best enjoyed fresh but will keep in airtight container in refrigerator for about 3 days.

For the guac:

  • Cut, pit and scoop out avocado into medium-sized bowl.
  • Add the lime juice, garlic cloves, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper (if desired).
  • Mash well with fork until desired consistency is reached.
  • Serve immediately with fries and chopped cilantro if desired. Leftovers will keep refrigerated in airtight container for 2 days—though best served fresh.
