Green Bean and Mushroom Poutine

Green Bean and Mushroom Poutine


The next thing that I came across while cleaning out my freezer was some leftover gravy from the pot roast that I made a while ago. As soon as I found the gravy memories of the sweet potato poutine came back and I was craving more. I remembered hearing about a vegetable version of poutine that replaced the fries with other vegetables. I was thinking that this was a good idea and the first thing that came to mind was green beans as they have a shape that is similar to fries. Some sauteed mushrooms sounded like they would finish off the dish nicely. The green bean and sauteed mushroom poutine turned out great! I guess you really can't go wrong with smothering any vegetable with cheese curds and tasty gravy. The green beans make this decadent treat just a bit leas unhealthy than the fries would have been. :)

Heck, you could put cheese curds and gravy on old sneakers and it would probably taste good! Green beans have never looked more tempting.

Yes so I am definitely going to try to find cheese curds somewhere in Boston. You have convinced me that they are necessary.

This looks really good, I've never had poutine before, but I've heard a lot about it.

First off the name totally cracks me up, reminds me of pouting! Looks really delish, I have not heard of this dish!

Elra said...

This is so embarrasing to admit that I never heard "Poutine" before.
Sounds good to me!

Now that's a healthful poutine.... I'm not sure what people from Quebec would think of it though ;)

Pam said...

What are cheese curds? I've looked through your blog, but I must have missed it.

Cakebrain said...

oh man! look at those yummy cheese curds! and you are so helping me with the low-carb thing! it looks fantastic!

★adair★ said...

looks so good. I'll try to do it.

Kevin said...

Pam: Cheese curds are the fresh curds of cheese from before they are packed into a brick I believe. They are a mild cheese that is ideally eaten when fresh. When eaten it squeaks a bit and it is nice and gooey when melted.

Oh this looks amazing! I could eat gravy on anything - but cheese curds? Heck yes!

jillian said...

Looks wonderful! I wish I could find cheese curds to make this!

OMG, totaly adopted!

I also keep leftover gravy from stews in case of a poutine emergency ;)

Imagine this with a bit of collard greens (bette à carde) instead of green beans... *drooling* I have to cook this soon !
