Epic Vegetarian Poutine with Easy Homemade Vegetarian Gravy

Some of you may be wondering, “What the heck is poutine?!” In short, it’s a Canadian dish featuring fries layered with cheese curd and then smothered in gravy. Usually it’s beef gravy, but often it’s chicken gravy. Today we’re making it with vegetarian gravy so that your vegetarian pals (like me) can get down with the poutine goodness, too.

This cookie recipe was entirely inspired by said perfect cookies. I think of them as the slightly more sophisticated older cousin – dark chocolate chip toffee cookies with pecans.

As a vegetarian I tend to love Thanksgiving sides best of all. Have you tried my vegetarian stuffing yet?! It’s insanely good. But these? These scalloped sweet potatoes are epic.
