Queso Burger Fries

Fries loaded with Queso and burger crumbles and it’s 100% vegan! Yes I did and I have no regrets! This recipe can be made using your stove, you would need to modify the recipes. 

For the Queso you’ll need to visit Kathy Hester’s blog Healthy Slow Cooking. If you don’t have a instant pot, boil the nuts and carrots for about 5 mins, add cauliflower and cook for about 5 more mins. You want them on the softer but not mushy side. Note* I have not tried this method so I’m guess here. As you know the bigger the pieces the longer it takes to cook. 

Serves 2 

For the fries:

4-5 potatoes, peeled and cut into wedges. 

Salt and pepper to taste

1 tsp garlic powder 

1/2 tsp ancho powder or any chili powder you like. 

1 tablespoon of oil or omit for oil free cooking. 

Toss the wedges with the oil and seasonings. Place in air fryer, cook at 180 for 15 mins, flip and cook for 10 more mins. 

For oven method, pre-heat oven to 350 and cook for 40-45 mins. 

For the beef crumbles:

1 cup of Beyond Meat Fiesta Crumbles

1 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp ancho powder or any chili powder you like. 

1 tsp oil or omit for oil free cooking. 

Toss the crumbles with the oil and seasoning right in your frying pan. 

Cook on medium heat until heated through about 5-8 mins (I didn’t time it). 

Grab a big plate- place fries on it, then put on your Queso, add your crumbles and top with green onion, diced tomatoes, diced  jalapeño. Anything you like or just omit the additional toppings as I did because I couldn’t wait to eat it 😀 


Let me know what you think. I hope you like it!

What do I eat when I “fail” to prepare?

Ok, I wouldn’t call it failing, really. I just call it- having every intention of cooking, than remembering I have vegan junk in my fridge. Seeing how it was a food chat night, and it’s been a long day- I couldn’t see a reason to question why not. I did freshly chop the onion, lettuce and tomato after all 😉

What’s your fav “fast food”? And how do you dress it up, so it’s not all processed?

Oven baked fries

When you have some left over baked potatoes, why not make them into fries? That is exactly what Laura did in her new book Vegan-Ease. I didn’t have left over baked potatoes, but I did make some ahead of time, just for this dish. I didn’t think fries could get crispy without using oil, but I was WRONG!! Love the spice blend she uses. These would go great with a veggie burger.

Baked, unseasoned.
