Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Drain the soaked cashews and wash them in a strainer. Add them to a blender along with the lemon juice, water (Note: this is fresh water, not the water you used to soak them in!), nutritional yeast, and salt. Blend until creamy. Set aside.
Line the french fries on a baking sheet. Tip: if you have a Silpat (silicone liner) use that to avoid burning your fries! Bake for 22-25 minutes or until crispy. Season with salt, pepper, paprika, and granulated garlic. Give them a little stir to mix the seasonings. Next, top with cheese. Note: I transferred my fries to a cast iron pan for presentation purposes, but feel free to top the fries with the cheese right on the baking sheet. Bake until the cheese melts, about 3-5 minutes.
While the cheese is melting, mix 1 part sriracha with 2 parts ketchup. When the cheese is melted, top them with the cashew cream, scallions and the spicy sriracha ketchup!
