These vegan oven-baked loaded fries are a fascination for those who love fries, but can't afford to add on tons of fats in their food. Yes, you hear RIGHT. They are fries but not fried. Sweet and garlicky baked fries, fresh veggies, olives and cheese, and a generous amount of pizza and BBQ sauce. That’s all that you need to impress your guests at a vegan party or a potluck. By the way, it is equally liked by meat-eaters.
These fries are a mix of sweet, savory and spicy flavors. They have a combination of potatoes and sweet potatoes to double the game of nutrients. Next, they are topped with fresh veggies, sauces, some dairy-free cheese, and avocado.
This recipe brings together all my favorite flavors, it is an amazing vegan potluck party appetizer or a vegan side dish recipe. These loaded fries are super easy to put together. They are refreshing and so delicious with various textures and flavors.
Ingredients for Vegan Oven-Baked Loaded Fries:
- Potatoes and Sweat potatoes: For these loaded fries recipe, I am using a mix of potatoes and two kinds of sweet potatoes. This is just to maintain a sweet and savory balance in the recipe.
- Sriracha Sauce: Fries are topped with a good amount of sriracha sauce. For those who don’t know, Sriracha is a type of hot sauce or chili sauce made from a paste of chili peppers, distilled vinegar, garlic, sugar, and salt. (yes, they are spicy too).
- Oil, Salt, and Garlic Powder: Oil will help to develop a fried like flavor to them without dipping them in tons of oil. Salt and garlic powder to give a yummy garlicky taste to fries.
- Corn Starch: It helps to absorb moisture from fries and give them a crispy coating.
