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. 🙂
Green Bean and Mushroom Poutine
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 8 ounces mushrooms (sliced)
- 1 pound green beans
- 1 cup cheese curds
- 1 cup gravy
- Melt the butter in a pan.
- Add the mushrooms and saute until just starting to caramelize, about 10-15 minutes.
- Add the green beans and saute until tender, about 3-5 minutes. (Or steam the green beans until tender.)
- Heat the gravy in a pan until boiling.
- Split the green beans, sauteed mushrooms, cheese curds between two plates and top with the piping hot gravy.

My sister would fall on her face for this! Literally.
Oh wow, what a creative idea!!!
Heck, you could put cheese curds and gravy on old sneakers and it would probably taste good! Green beans have never looked more tempting.
i love green beans, i love mushrooms, so this is just perfect!!! 🙂
This combination with the green beans looks lovely!

A wonderful idea! Delicious!
This looks so delicious! Very creative.
Oh beautiful! A bit healthier than straightforward Poutine too (though I love it!).
That is such a cool idea.! What a way to make eating poutine a little more guilt free!
As a French Canadian who is very familiar with poutine, I must applaud you for your creativity! Very interesting.
Loooove green beans and mushrooms!!
You make wonderful mushroom dishes! Delicious!
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!
This is so embarrasing to admit that I never heard “Poutine” before.
Sounds good to me!
Ok WOW you just took poutine to a different unique level!!! 🙂
What a fine click friend !!
Very comforting! This looks incredibly full of flavor.
mmmmm. that sounds delicious! i am always looking for new ways to get veggies into my diet 🙂

This might just get Mr. I-Hate-Vegetables to eat a green bean!
Mushrooms as well? Nice dish, like the gravy 🙂

I keep hearing about Poutine but have never tried it. I really should rectify that situation with your recipe!
Mmmm! I like the look of this.
Now that’s a healthful poutine…. I’m not sure what people from Quebec would think of it though 😉
What are cheese curds? I’ve looked through your blog, but I must have missed it.
oh man! look at those yummy cheese curds! and you are so helping me with the low-carb thing! it looks fantastic!
looks so good. I’ll try to do it.
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!
Looks wonderful! I wish I could find cheese curds to make this!
My mother in law (who LOVES curds) would really dig this meal. I know what I am making her the next time she visits.
Looking at this is making me hungry!!!

What an interesting way of using leftover gravy.
I love green beans and mushrooms together and this is a nice variation!
ana dane says
poutine is my weakness. and now, thanks to your inventive version, i don’t have to feel bad about that.
I love Poutine! A restaurant in my area serves Short Rib Poutine and it’s delicious!
dude…dude. now that’s canadian cooking…
Miss C says
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 !
My goodness this was delicious, I was gonna be making ground beef patties with mushrooms and mozza cheese on top but didn’t feel like mashed potatoes and wasn’t sure if green beans worked with gravy etc and came across this. so I just did the patties and then the green bean and mushroom poutine, made a green peppercorn gravy for it and was fantastic.
