Sweet Potato Poutine Recipe - Canadian Favourites

Poutine is a French Canadian favorite that is enjoyed all over Canada. Traditionally, it's comprised of French fries, cheese curds and a rich gravy, although there are many variations and toppings available today such as smoked meat, BBQ, or pulled pork to name a few. Today, I am making my poutine with sweet potato fries and topping them with fresh goat cheese and a rich butter miso gravy. The goat cheese goes well with the sweet potato and is all brought together with the savory flavor of the miso gravy. I hope you try this at home and enjoy!


The potato fries
Sweet potatoes 2 Large , cut into uniform 1/4
Oil 1 Cup (16 tbs) (For deep frying)
The miso gravy
Miso 1 1/2 Tablespoon (red miso)
Prepared mustard 1 Tablespoon
Soy sauce 1 Dash
Sesame oil 1 Dash
Flour 2 Tablespoon
Water 2 Cup (32 tbs)
Butter 1 Tablespoon
Salt To Taste
Pepper To Taste
The toppings
Goat cheese 1/4 Cup (4 tbs) , crumbled (as required)
Green onions 2 Tablespoon (as required)



1. In a pot heat up a couple of inches of oil to 325 F. Working in batches cook the fries for about 3 to 4 minutes till tender. Strain and dry on paper towels.

2. For the second cooking turn up the heat to 375 F, working in batches again fry the potatoes until golden brown and crisp. This would only take about a minute or two. Drain on paper towels and season with salt.

3. In a large mixing bowl combine red miso, prepared mustard, soy sauce, sesame oil and flour. Gradually whisk in water until smooth.

4. Take a frying pan, heat it up to a medium heat and pour the sauce mix and bring to a boil. When it starts to boil, reduce the heat and simmer until thickened.

5. Add 1 tablespoon of butter for added richness and texture. Finally give it a taste and season with salt and pepper.


6. In a serving bowl lay down a generous pile of fries an top it with an even distribution of goat cheese.

7. Follow that with a miso gravy and finish with chopped green onions.


8. Serve warm and fresh.


The cooking time of the fries will depend upon how thick the fries have been cut.
