Daily Vegan Lunch for 23 July, 2013: Bacon Cheese Fries

July 23 was my birthday. Yes, I was a french fry vegan for one day. This was really tasty.

My awesome vegan cheese recipe is very low calorie and almost zero fat. The bacon cheese fries you see here contain zero cholesterol and the whole thing clocks in at only 350 calories and 7 grams of fat! Yay!

The same plateful of bacon cheese fries from Steak & Shake is 950 calories and 54 sad grams of fat.

This non-dairy cheese sauce is also excellent on nachos. I originally invented a version of it to go on Best Ever Vegan Mac & Cheese.

INGREDIENTS:

3 cups of frozen steak fries
2 teaspoons oil

1 cup Oat Cheese from Best Ever Vegan Nachos

1 tablespoon veggie baco bits

1 green onion, chopped

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Put the fries in a casserole dish or on a cookie sheet. Hand toss frozen fries in oil until they are lightly coated on all sides. Alternately, coat fries with less or no oil at all if you want even less fat.

Bake fries 10 minutes, then toss them with a spatula and cook for 10 minutes more.

Coat fries with slightly warm cheese sauce and top with baco bits and green onion. DELICIOUS! Happy Birthday to me!!
