When indulgence calls, answer with poutine. Baked fries are topped with vegan gravy & almond feta for a wonderfully decadent appetizer or side dish. Or heck, why not have it for dinner?Serves 2 as a meal, 4 as an appetizer
Servings: 4 people
- 1 pound Russet potatoes cut into ½ inch thick sticks
- 1 Tablespoon organic canola oil or other high heat oil
- Pinch salt
- ⅛ to ¼ teaspoon paprika optional
- ¼ cup vegan turkey gravy plus more if desired
- 2 Tablespoons vegan feta cheese plus more if desired
- 1 Tablespoon sliced green onions optional garnish
Preheat oven to 420 degrees. Line one or two baking sheets with parchment paper.
Put potato sticks onto baking sheet and toss with oil. Spread the sticks evenly across the baking sheet, being careful that the potatoes aren't overlapped or touching. If there's not enough room, put half of the potato pieces on the second baking sheet. Top the potatoes with a pinch of salt & sprinkling of paprika (optional). Put the baking sheet(s) into the oven. Roast the potatoes for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and toss with a spatula for even browning. Return to oven and roast for another 10 minutes.
Remove from oven. Put baked fries on a platter.
Top with warmed vegan turkey gravy and a sprinkling of vegan feta cheese. Finish with an optional garnish of sliced green onions. Serve right away.
A pound of Russet potatoes is about 2 medium sized potatoes.
I like to leave the peel on the potatoes for added texture & nutrients. However, feel free to peel them first if you prefer.
If you're using just one baking sheet, roast the potatoes on the bottom rack for optimum browning. If you're using two baking sheets, rotate half way through, so that both sheets have a chance to get close to the heat source.
If you'd prefer, you can air fry or bake frozen fries instead of making them from scratch.
Homemade vegan feta cheese can be replaced with the non-dairy cheese of your choice. Shredded or cubed vegan cheddar or mozzarella work especially well.
