“Last Cigarette” by Sense


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Slice and place the potato fries on parchment paper, sprinkle with black pepper and garlic powder and bake for 30-45 minutes, depending on your oven and how thick you sliced the potatoes. Rotate the trays, if you baked multiple trays, to make sure they all cook evenly.

For the Cheese sauce:
4 cups diced russet or golden potatoes
2 medium carrots, diced
1 medium fresh jalapeño, minced (or a little pickled jalapeño)
1/2 an orange bell pepper
1/4 cup raw whole cashews
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1/2-3/4 cup water
1 tsp garlic powder
2-3 tbsp lemon juice
1/8 tsp sea salt

Boil the potatoes and carrots. Once tender, drain the water from the pot and and blend the potatoes and carrots with the rest of the cheese sauce ingredients in a high speed blender like the Vitamix until smooth and creamy. You will need a good blender for this recipe to get the sauce smooth and creamy.

For the chili:
1 onion, minced 3 cloves garlic, minced 2 carrots, diced 2 sticks celery, diced 1 red bell pepper, diced 1 can red kidney beans 1 can pinto beans 1 28oz can of Organic crushed tomatoes
1-1.5 cups water or low sodium veggie broth 1 small can of tomato paste Oregano, cumin, chili powder, and black- pepper to taste (about 1 tbsp each)

Sauté the onion and garlic in a large pot with a little water. Then add the carrots, celery, and bell pepper and cook that down/stir for 5 to 10 minutes on medium heat. Add more water or veggie broth as needed to keep it moist.
Drain and rinse the beans with water thoroughly. Then add the beans,
canned tomatoes, more water or veggie broth, tomato paste, and spices to the pot. Stir and cover the pot and turn down to low heat for 15 minutes or so. Then voila! The chili is ready.

    Can’t wait to try this! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I actually tried potato and carrot “nacho cheese” sauce and “Mac’n’cheese” and it tasted pretty bad tbh I believe it was buzzfeed recipe but they all similar, what went wrong or it supposed to taste like sticky potato mush? I’m desperate

  3. Yes, we make a very similar nacho cheese, and put it on top of loaded baked potatoes and its delicious!

  4. how do you decide what you’re eating for dinner?

  5. Ellen your videos inspire me like no other videos I’ve ever seen! Do you have any videos talking about natural cleaning products, sunscreen, or bug spray? My boys are always outside and I struggle to find good natural sunscreen and bug spray that works!

  6. Your family is so amazing. Trying Elvis his kale avocado wraps tomorrow

    The trick to getting crispy fries in the oven is to dry them off completely and then throw them in the oven for 45 minutes and then season them! The seasonings will pull moisture out of the potatoes in the oven so if you season after you’ll have crispy fries 🙂 hope this helps!!!

  17. Josée Dianne Babin

    You’re channel is my new favorite since I just discovered it!!! Love you and your family❤️

  18. i've tried your nachos cheese sauce recipe the other day, awesome btw!, but this one levels it up! definitely going to try it next time!

  20. I discovered your channel last summer and I fell in love with it. I now want to become a vegan. I just recently became a vegetarian and I’m going to try that out for a little while and build habits I know I will stick to instead of becoming a full vegan right away and not being able to do it. You and your sister have inspired me and I am so much happier now.

  21. Ahh!! I’ve made this before, but now I’m excited to try your chili recipe!!

  23. Such a beautiful and inspiring family 🌸

  24. Hey Ellen, I love your videos and you have inspired me to try to go Vegan. Sadly this is not as easy for me, because I have a lot of Food allergies, which brings me to my question: Is there anything I could replace the cashews with, in the recipe for the Cheese sauce? Do you have any recommendations on how to go Vegan with dietary constrictions? Thank you for being such an inspiration!
