If you are Canadian, you know that Poutine is the best thing ever. If you aren't Canadian, you probably know "Poutine" and the "Canadian" dish... along with maple syrup right? So usually, it is deep fried, and covered in greasy animal gravy and fatty cheese. Now you can have your poutine and waistline too.
The french fries are the first step. Cut up some organic potatoes into long, thin strips (like fries). Cover baking sheet with parchment paper and lay the potatoes across without being piled up. Sprinkle some fresh herbs (thyme, basil, rosemary), paprika, pepper, and a tiny bit of pink Himalayan sea salt. Bake at 375F for 25 minutes Or until browned on the bottom and soft inside. Switch to broil for 3 minutes to brown the other side.
You can play with this gravy recipe if you want to by adding different spices etc. I used 2 chopped shallots, 2 garlic cloves, 1 cup of chopped cremini mushrooms, 1/2 cup of low sodium mushroom broth, 1/4 cup of wine or sherry, 1/2 tsp guar gum, thyme, basil and rosemary to flavour, 1/2 tsp pink Himalayan sea salt and some black pepper.
