Garlic Cilantro Fries and Hummus

 

Potatoes have become a staple in my vegan journey. It’s versatile, filling, and just all around greatness.

Pairing it with my other favorites ( garlic and cilantro) really set these fries apart. Crispy and flavorful, it makes for a great snack anytime.

This is also a quick hummus recipe. I have a more detailed one coming soon. Hummus is also versatile, you can flavor it with whatever you want, just add in your desired flavor while blending.
