Vegetarian Poutine – Fresh Cut Fries in Mushroom Gravyon March 3rd, 2013 Posted in Home Made Cooking
Try and Google “Canada’s National Food” and the first result you’ll get is Poutine.
What is poutine you ask? Well, in case you didn’t know poutine is basically a dish consisting of fries topped with gravy, so the way I see it it’s wet fries 🙂 not a very photogenic dish if I may say and up until now I didn’t really understand what people find in it – until I decided to be open minded about this dish and try a vegetarian version of it at home. Now homemade poutine is a whole different story!! Why? Well, fresh potato fries, freshly grated cheese and yummy mushroom sauce – sound good to me!
Of course the end result tasted So good, but other than that I really liked the fact that it’s so easy and super fast to make this and of course the fact that it’s hassle free thanks to the “Mushroom Marsala” Sauce. I’m telling you, this sauce just made it all possible! Really! Of course, you can make your own mushroom sauce; it’s not too hard, but why go through so much effort after a day at the office. I was super happy with the outcome and the kids flipped!! They loved it so much!! This was the first time we had vegetarian poutine at home and I believe it is safe to say that it’s not the last time!
