Cheeze Fries

Think: ooey, gooey, drippy, melty baseball game cheese sauce, but 100% plant-based and loaded with veggies, spices, B12-packed nutritional yeast, and heart-healthy cashews. Pour over our homemade, oven-baked fries (or anything, really!) and this dish is a home run!

Cheeze Sauce Ingredients

1 small carrot, sliced into fourths

1 small onion, sliced into quarters

1 cup soaked raw cashews (soaked 10 hours minimum)

1/4 of a red bell pepper, diced

4 tablespoons nutritional yeast

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon cumin

1/4 teaspoon chili powder

1 cup water, room temp.

Fries Ingredients

1 large potato (soaked for 20 min, scrubbed, cut into 1/2- inch x 3- inch fries)

2 tablespoons olive oil

Suggested toppings




green onion


1Fill a small pot halfway with water and bring to a boil. Add the carrot and onion. Keep at a boil for 10 min. Use a strainer or strainer spoon to drain the carrot and onion. Set aside to cool down.

2Preheat the oven to 425 F. Cut the potato according to the recommended fry size (or your desired size). Toss fries in a bowl with olive oil.

3On a sheet pan, cover with aluminum foil. Place a cooling rack on top of the sheet pan and lay the fries flat on the rack with no pieces touching or on top of each other.

4Bake for 35 min, until golden brown. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.

5To make the sauce, use a blender to combine the boiled carrot and onion, soaked cashews, red bell pepper, and the cup of water. Blend until smooth. Add salt, garlic, cumin, nutritional yeast, and chili powder and blend again. Taste the sauce and add more salt if necessary. Warm in a small pot over low-medium heat, stirring frequently.

6Place fries on a place and pour the desired amount of sauce on top. Top with jalapenos, green onion, salsa, avocado, etc. Enjoy!

Additional Notes

Baking fries on top of a cooling rack will ensure all sides of the fries are baking without the need to flip! While warming up the sauce, it may thicken. If it becomes too thick for your liking, simply add a tablespoon of water and stir. Repeat this until you reach your desired consistency. This is also a good time to taste again and add more salt or nutritional yeast.
