Think you have to give up your favourite foods when you give up dairy??? NOPE!! I have successfully simulated virtually all of my cheesy favourites! Like POUTINE!!
Your favourite french fries topped with rich mushroom gravy and cheese. And here's the trick...
Grate your Zengarry Gruyere Style Cashew Cheese right out of the freezer!!
Top with a sprinkling of freshly ground black pepper or even a bit of smoked paprika!
Use whatever gravy you like. You can find my favourite mushroom gravy recipe below.
Lynda's Favourite Mushroom Gravy
2 teaspoons nondairy butter (Earth Balance)
1 yellow onion, chopped
1 pound cremini mushrooms, sliced
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cups vegetable broth
2-3 tablespoons tamari soy sauce 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
Pepper to taste
Heat butter in a large-size skillet and sauté onion and mushrooms over high heat, stirring frequently, until they turn translucent and a little golden brown and mushrooms soften. Should take about 15 minutes.
While the onions and mushrooms are cooking, in a separate bowl, pour vegetable broth, soy sauce, rosemary and pepper. Whisk flour into broth mixture. When there are no lumps, add to mushroom/onion mixture. Reduce heat and cook on low-medium heat, stirring constantly until thickened. Take off heat and set aside.
