i have achieved it! yes, folks, the dish we've all been waiting for -- vegan poutine
! what is poutine, you ask? it's a french canadian delight made up of french fries, cheese curds and gravy. you can get it at pretty much any fast food joint in canada, including KFC and A&W. of course, neither gravy nor cheese are vegan, so i've been missing poutine for ages now.
thanks to this mushroom gravy recipe

and the wonderful innovation called soy cheese, or mozzarella flavoured soy loaf (which is what i actually used), i finally satisfied this craving. :)
i added a touch of soy sauce to the gravy, and put it through the blender after cooking in order to have a super creamy gravy. if you want to try it out, make enough fries -- straight cut or julienne -- to fill a bowl (a small bowl, this is pretty fatty and filling). cook 'em till they're golden but not too crispy. somewhat soft fries are best. grate some cheese (a small handful will probably be enough) and top the fries with it. pour the gravy overtop. you might want to put the cheese on after the gravy, or some before and some after. s'up to you.( Collapse )
eat it with a fork, not with your hands. ;) some people like ketchup in their poutine... i'm not one of those people.
