Roasted Veggie Poutine With Gravy

Serves 4
This dish is vegetarian & gluten-free.
It can be made vegan if you leave out the cheese option or use a vegan cheese instead. 

Note: We are aiming for a rustic looking veggie poutine. Keep this in mind when chopping your vegetables. Keep them bite-size, but you do not need to be perfect with your knife cuts.

4 carrots, roughly chopped

2 parsnips, roughly chopped

2 sweet potatoes (Alternatively, Russet potatoes or a combination of the 2), roughly chopped

1/2 head of cauliflower, bite-sized florets

1 tbsp olive oil

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 cup organic cheddar cheese, shredded (optional) - raw is best if you can find it or you can substitute a vegan cheese here for a vegan option

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 450F.
  • Line 1-2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • Toss vegetables in olive oil and sea salt, and spread out evenly on cookie sheets.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes flipping once halfway through.
