Vegan Poutine

Vegan Poutine http://wp.me/p4qC4h-3uS

Crispy french fries smothered with two killer sauces, a Dijon Thyme Gravy and Cheddar Beer Sauce …and it is all vegan! Pub food, game food, comfort food, party food, whenever food that we can feel fantastic about. Because we care about ourselves and the planet, but we still want to get our grub on too. Which is precisely why I want to make recipes like this where we can have it all.

So what the hell is poutine, you say? Poutine is a classic, Canadian pub dish where french fries are covered in a light brown gravy and then cheese curds. Sounds kinda awesome and terrible at the same time, don’t you think? And I have actually never had it. But I have been enamoured with the idea of poutine. Seriously. For kinda a long time too, now that I think about it. And it was this weekend that I decided to finally give it a try.

In my own way. ❤
