This is a remix of another very popular vegetarian poutine of ours.
Except there’s kale. And goat cheese. And I made it on a sheet pan (obviously).
Actually, this would have been perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. Ah well, there’s always next year.
But really, any day is a good day for vegetarian poutine. I will say it was super duper hard not to just eat those oven roasted fries right off the tray dunked in some ketchup. But I resisted, because there was poutine to be made.
I went with goat cheese because I just love the creaminess with the warm kale and super savoury mushroom gravy. A word to the wise, you are going to want to drink this gravy. Yes, it’s that good. Hold yourself back. The warm gravy on top of the crispy potatoes and creamy goat cheese is a thing of magic.
This was a total hit at our family dinner the other night. My husband and I ate it as is, I left some potatoes and cheese plain for the kiddos and there was not a leftover in sight. Which was sad for my lunch the next day, but made my little heart sing with happiness. There is not much that brings me more joy than watching my family enjoy the food I’ve made.
And if it sounds kinda weird to you to eat a plate of potatoes for dinner, let me ask you this – do you eat pasta for dinner? Or a plate of risotto? Or how about pizza? Or a grilled cheese? You see, carbs are carbs are carbs. Your body digests them all in the same way. So if you are having a hankering for vegetarian poutine like I was, then enjoy it!
And trust me, you will enjoy this one!
