Homemade Poutine

When I was growing up in Canada, the two national dishes I incredibly enjoyed eating were poutine and butter tarts.

Poutine is a French-Canadian dish of french fries with cheese curds on top and covered in gravy, so the cheese gets all gooey.

It’s kind of hard to imagine until you actually taste it. We bake the fries, make a rich mushroom gravy and vegan cheeze to go on top.

So delicious!! 🙂

  • Olive oil
  • Garlic powder, rosemary, thyme
