Nutritional Guidelines (per serving)

(Nutrition information is calculated using an ingredient database and should be considered an estimate.)


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C).
  2. Fries: Toss potatoes with Becel until well coated. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Arrange in single layer on large parchment paper–lined baking sheet.
  3. Bake, turning halfway, for 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown and tender.
  4. Mushroom Gravy: Meanwhile, in large skillet set over medium-high heat, melt 2 tbsp (30 mL) Becel. Add mushrooms, 1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt and 1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes or until starting to brown. Transfer to plate.
  5. Reduce heat to medium. In same skillet, melt remaining Becel. Add onion, garlic, thyme, rosemary, remaining salt and remaining pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 6 minutes or until softened and tender. Sprinkle with flour. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 to 3 minutes or until flour is incorporated.
  6. Slowly whisk in broth. Continue to whisk and bring to a boil. Stir in mushrooms mixture, Worcestershire sauce and mustard; bring back to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 4 to 6 minutes or until thickened to gravy consistency and flavours are married.
  7. Serve fries topped with gravy and mozzarella. Garnish with green onions.
For loaded poutine, top with crumbled vegan tempeh bacon, halved cherry tomatoes and pickled jalapeño pepper slices if desired.
