Eat fries for dinner. Seriously – they don’t have to be greasy, unhealthy, and loaded with trans fats. To be honest, Joe and I enjoy a plate of fries and dip for dinner more often than I care to admit. It’s just soooo good. So filling. SO CHEAP. Potatoes, man. They are cheap cheap cheap.
OPTIONAL: romaine lettuce and extra lime to squeeze on fries and lettuce
Preheat oven to 400 F.
Grab a cool rack (or if you don’t have a cooling rack, you could just use a non-stick baking sheet) and line with your cut fries – sprinkle with salt and put them into your 400 degree oven for 35-40 minutes.
While fries are baking, start your black bean dip. Add black beans, onion, lime juice, red wine vinegar, nutritional yeast, water, salt, pepper, onion powder, and cumin. Simmer for about 5 or so minutes, or until fragrant.
Take beans off heat and allow to cool a couple minutes before adding to a blender.
Assemble dip and fresh romaine lettuce leaves (washed and dried) on a plate while you await for your fries to be done.
Check on your fries in between to gauge if they are crispy enough for your liking. Note – I did not flip my fries because I used a cooling rack to cook both sides. If you are using a pan, be sure to flip halfway through 🙂
Once done – squeeze more fresh lime onto the fries and lettuce – enjoy!
