Alright, alright, we know what you're thinking.

It's not "authentic" poutine. Where are the cheese curds??

I mean, if you really want to, go ahead and use cheese curds instead. We have admittedly never had authentic poutine - probably because it's hardly ever made vegetarian.

The first time we had ever ordered it was actually on a trip to northern Michigan - Mackinaw City. A cozy little diner in the city (the only one open during the winter) had it offered on the menu, and Nate decided to try it for the first time (this was during his meat-eating days). The poutine came as our recipe describes, melted cheddar with gravy and fries.

The first reaction is pure bliss, the second reaction was "how do we recreate this for Kate to enjoy?" Enter: vegetarian poutine.

And, well, that's how we ended up here. Using shredded cheese allows for the substitution of vegan shreds, which would make this entire dish vegan! Of course, we don't want to impede on any curd-age. Curd away if you wish.

With comfort food this good, nobody will notice that there's no meat -they'll be too busy stuffing their faces.

Bon appetit!

Vegetarian Poutine Recipe:



  1. First, prepare fries and vegetarian gravy using our recipe or another. The prep time listed is dependent on using our recipes, using other recipes will cause different prep times.

  2. On a baking sheet, lay the fries out, then cover with 1 cup vegan gravy. Sprinkle the cup of cheddar over top of the fries and gravy.

  3. Broil the poutine for 2-5 minutes or until melted. Broil times can differ greatly from oven to oven, so watch carefully!

  4. Transfer the poutine carefully to a new plate and serve hot!
