Notes

Dairy-free and vegan

Bake the fries in coconut oil and replace the cheese with ¼ cup toasted cashews (processed to a meal), then mixed with 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast, a good pinch of sea salt and a pinch of garlic powder. You can also replace the feta with a vegan (cashew) cream cheese.

Nut-free

Replace the almonds with pumpkin or sunflower seeds (or omit). 

Onion-free

Omit the spring onion.
