A Green Poutine-Style Sweet Potato Recipe is a healthy version of Canada’s favourite treat – poutine, dress up a sweet potato with cheese sauce, gravy, and greens.
Double cooking the sweet potato will give you a beautiful creamy texture inside, with crunchy bits on the edges. Make sure to cut your sweet potato in half using a fork (the same way you would with an English muffin), so you’ll get lots of nooks and crannies that will brown in the oven.
The amounts for the cheese sauce and gravy here are vague, since it depends on how saucy you like things, and also on how big your sweet potato is. Both sauces last for a week in the fridge, so any leftovers will have time to be used up.
I’ve given two options for the cheese sauce: one cashew based (pictured) and one potato based.
