Easy Vegan Poutine

This Easy Vegan Poutine is simple to make and tastes delicious. Made with vegan cheese curds and a quick mushroom gravy, it's perfect vegan comfort food! Recipe by Vancouver with Love.



  • 2 lb yellow or russet potatoes (3-4 medium potatoes)
  • 1½ tbsp avocado or grapeseed oil
  • Sea salt

Cheese Curds:

  • 200g pack medium firm tofu
  • 2 tbsp tapioca starch
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tbsp soy milk
  • 2 tbsp avocado or grape seed oil


  • 2 tbsp vegan butter or avocado oil
  • 3 small cremini mushrooms
  • 1½ tbsp miso paste
  • 1 tbsp Bragg’s soy seasoning or tamari (soy sauce)
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 3 tbsp brown rice flour
  • 1½ cups vegetable stock or broth


  1. For the Cheese Curds: Add all ingredients to a blender, and blend on medium for about 15 seconds until mixture is smooth and ingredients are combined.
  2. Transfer to a small saucepan, and cook on low (stirring regularly) for 10-12 minutes, until the ‘cheese’ is smooth and stretchy. The mixture will become lumpy at first and may stick to the pan a bit but that’s ok – just keep stirring until it becomes smooth!
  3. Transfer to a bowl until ready to use.
  4. For the Fries: Preheat oven to 400°F/205°C. Slice the potatoes into strips 1cm wide.
  5. Place on baking trays and toss in the oil to coat all fries evenly. Sprinkle with sea salt to taste.
  6. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes, flipping the fries over after 15 minutes.
  7. For the Gravy: While the fries are cooking, add all gravy ingredients to a blender and blitz on high for 15 seconds until smooth.
  8. Transfer to a saucepan and heat on medium heat until bubbling. Reduce the heat to low and cook for 15 minutes – stirring frequently – until gravy has thickened.
  9. To Assemble: Place the fries in a large bowl.Dollop with small piles of the cheese curds and pour over the gravy. Eat immediately!

Food for me is a passion. I find it strange when people comment on the restrictions of a plant-based diet, because to me there is huge variety in it. In fact, I’m probably more adventurous with food now than I was before I turned vegan. I love colour and vitality in my recipes as well as simplicity and elegance. See all recipes by Elizabeth
