Garlic Parmesan French Fries

This one as silly as it sounds was inspired from a dish I have gotten numerous times at the Titled Kilt. I think Jimmy mentioned going there last week or something and the memory of them came back. I obviously had to change one main ingredient but they still came out amazing! Again they are quick and easy and can be added as a side to many different recipes. :)

1/2 bag Ore-Ida french fries
2 tablespoons vegan buttery spread
1 tablespoon olive oil
6-8 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons dried parsley
1 tablespoon garlic salt
PAM cooking spray
vegan Parmesan cheese
Vegan Ranch (optional)

Preheat oven according to directions on back of Ore-Ida French Fries. Spray medium cooking tray with PAM cooking spray. Evenly spread french fries onto tray. Cook french fries according to directions on until they are cooked to your liking. I like mine extra crispy so they always take longer then the bag says. While they are cooking you will want to get your garlic sauce ready. Dice 3 gloves of garlic and using a garlic mincer mince the remaining gloves. If you do not have one just dice them all. In a small pan melt the buttery spread, add the olive oil and  garlic. Add the dried parsley, pepper and garlic salt and cook on medium heat for about 5 minutes or until the garlic is beginning to get a brownish look to them. Remove from heat. Once the french fries are cooked remove from the oven and place on a plate. Add the garlic sauce evenly to the french fries. Sprinkle a good amount of vegan Parmesan on top as well. Serve hot with vegan ranch or any other type of sauce you enjoy dipping your fries in!
