Baked Fries & Cashew Cheese

Baked Fries & Cashew Cheese

One of my favorite foods in the world is french fries. I could eat them every day and never get tired of them! Most fries from restaurants and fast food places are flooded in oil and salt. They may taste good but they always leave you feeling tired and sick an hour after you eat them.

I wanted to find a recipe that satisfied my cravings but wasn’t high in saturated fat and sodium. I’ve tried lots of complicated recipes with a crazy amount of ingredients but I always resort back to this simple recipe. Its simple, yet delicious. And its even better dipped in cashew cheese sauce.
