Gluten-Free Poutine

[Photographs: Elizabeth Barbone]

The recipe makes a classic poutine, only gluten-free. To serve your poutine nice and hot, this flow works well:

  • Prepare fries up to final frying stage.
  • Prepare gravy. Keep warm over low heat. Be sure to whisk occasionally.
  • Remove cheese curds from refrigerator.
  • Fry french fries.
  • Top with prepared gravy and cheese curds.


Ingredient Note:
Gluten-free beef broth can be hard to find. I used Kitchen Basics.

Ingredients

  • 1 recipe Perfect Thin and Crispy French Fries, prepared until just before final frying stage
  • 8 ounces (1 cup) gluten-free chicken stock, divided, warm
  • 3 tablespoons butter

Procedures

  1. 1

    Soak potatoes as directed in recipe. Prepare gravy: Just before frying french fries, prepare gravy. Reserve one tablespoon chicken stock. Set aside. In medium pot, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add sweet rice flour and whisk to combine. A thick paste will form. Cook, whisking constantly, until mixture turns lightly golden brown, about three minutes. Whisking constantly, add remaining chicken stock and all beef broth in a slow and steady stream. Cook until gravy thickens, about four minutes. Combine cornstarch and reserved chicken stock. Whisk with a fork until smooth. Add to gravy. Continue whisking and bring gravy to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Add vinegar and season to taste with salt and pepper. Whisk gravy occasionally while you prepare the french fries.

  2. 2

    Remove cheese curds from refrigerator. Set aside. Fry french fries as directed in recipe. Divide cooked french fries between four bowls. Top with cheese curds and gravy. Serve immediately.
