Healthy Poutine?


4 servings, about 3/4 cup potatoes & 1/3 cup gravy each
Active Time: 35 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes


* 1 1/2 pounds new or baby potatoes, scrubbed and cut into quarters
* 5 tsp extra-virgin olive oil, divided
* 1/4 plus 1/8 teaspoon salt, divided
* 1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper, divided
* 1 1/2 cups reduced-sodium veggie beef broth or mushroom broth, divided
* 3 Tbs all-purpose flour
* 1 cup coarsely chopped cremini or white mushrooms
* 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
* 2 Tbs finely chopped chives
* 1/2 cup shredded extra-sharp Cheddar cheese

1. Position rack in lower third of oven; preheat to 450°F.
2. Combine potatoes, 2 tsp oil and 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper in a large bowl; toss to coat. Spread evenly on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast, stirring once or twice, until the potatoes are tender and browned, 20 to 25 minutes.
3. Whisk 1/2 cup broth and flour in a small bowl; set aside.
4. Heat the remaining 3 tsp oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add mushrooms and onion and cook, stirring often, until beginning to brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the remaining 1 cup broth; bring to a simmer. Cook until reduced by about half, 8 to 10 minutes.
5. Add the reserved flour and broth mixture; cook, stirring constantly, until smooth and thickened, 1 to 3 minutes. Stir in chives and the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; keep warm on low heat.
6. When the potatoes are done, push them together in the center of the pan and sprinkle with cheese. Return to the oven; bake until the cheese is melted, about 5 minutes more. Serve the potatoes topped with the gravy.
