These oil free healthy vegan loaded fries are great if you’re looking for healthy comfort food, or even dinner for a family movie night.
This recipe for healthy vegan loaded fries combines a couple of different recipes, but they all come together quite quickly. In fact, you can have all the toppings ready by the time the chips are done in the oven!
You could use a multitude of different topping combinations and flavours, but in this recipe I went for the more traditional option of cheesey bacon. I use my chickpea bacon recipe as a healthy bacon alternative. The maple syrup, smoked paprika and vegan Worcestershire sauce give a smokey bacon flavour to super healthy chickpeas!
Another option with a Mexican twist would be with black beans, salsa, avocado, corn and cheese. Or any other flavour combination you can think of!
To Make Healthy Vegan Loaded Fries:
Gluten Free: This recipe as written is gluten free. Other topping options may not be.
Nut Free:Unfortunately, I do not have a nut free option on the cheese topping as yet. I am still working on it! You can substitute store bought vegan mozzerella for the cheese sauce if you need a nut free option.
To Make:Wash and cut up potatoes into thick chips. Peeling is optional. Lay on a single layer over prepared baking trays and bake at 200 degrees for approximately 20 minutes. This time will vary, depending on the size of the chips.
For a less effort (but less healthy) option, you can simply cook some oven baked chips according to the packet directions instead of making your own.
When the chips are cooked, assemble the healthy vegan loaded fries in an oven proof dish. Return to the oven to brown the top and heat through.
