Coconut Oil and Nutritional Yeast aren’t your typical stock grocery items, but we recommend investing in them because they are extremely versatile.  Coconut Oil contains a fair amount of medium chain triglycerides (MCTs).  Your body metabolizes this type of oil differently than most oils as it gets transported to the liver and is used immediately for energy; which helps you burn fat (plus it tastes great; is more stable than olive oil at high cooking temperatures and provides the “popcorn” taste to these fries).  Season the “fries” with Sea Salt, Smoked Paprika and Nutritional Yeast. Nutritional Yeast has a slightly “cheesy” flavor; is rich in minerals and B vitamins (particularly B12) and imparts a unique flavor on to the fries.  Every now and then, we like a little Garlic in our fries–please note the option in the recipe.
