3 medium potatoes
1 tbsp coconut oil
¼ tsp sea salt
1 tbsp arrowroot starch
1 tbsp water
3 tbsp butter
2 tbsp flour
1 garlic clove, minced
1 ¼ cup vegetable broth
Pepper, to taste
½ cup cheese curds (or shredded cheese)
Peel potatoes and cut into French fries. Place them in a bowl. Melt coconut oil and drizzle over potatoes. Mix them around to coat with oil. Spread out on a greased baking sheet and sprinkle with salt. Bake at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes, flip them over and continue to bake for another 20 minutes.
In a small bowl, dissolve the arrowroot starch in water. Set aside.
Melt butter in a saucepan. Add flour and cook for about five minutes, whisking often. Add garlic and broth. Continue to whisk. Add cornstarch and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes or until sauce thickens.
Top French fries with cheese and sauce. Enjoy!
