Poutine with Sausage and Broccolini (Paleo)

Traditionally poutine is fries, gravy and cheese curds. Ours is still a salty, craveworthy, comfort food, but dairy free, and protein packed.

Poutine – Real Plans

Poutine is something of a hot dish right now- excuse the pun. And to be honest, until a few months ago, I had never heard of it. Sure, when I was a kid I had gravy fries after school in the diner, but other than my annual trip to my hometown, this is not a food I felt I could recreate.

Who wants to mess with a good thing. But this real food, paleo version omits the grain and cheese but adds a perfect gravy, protein filled sausage, and even a little but of veggies. We messed with a good thing, but made it even better.

Poutine with Sausage and Broccolini (Paleo)

  • 45m
  • 15m
  • 1h


  • 2 tbsp. arrowroot
  • 4 tbsp. filtered water
  • 1 qt chicken stock
  • 4 tbsp. bacon fat
  • 2 tsp. coarse sea salt, plus more to taste
  • 1 tsp. ground black pepper, plus more to taste
  • 4 lb sweet potatoes
  • 1 c coconut oil
  • 1 lb Italian sausage
  • 2 bunches broccolini


For the gravy:

  1. In a small cup combine arrowroot and filtered water until smooth.
  2. In a saucepan bring the chicken stock to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium low and continue cooking for 15 minutes. Pour in arrowroot slurry, bacon fat, half the sea salt, and half the fresh ground black pepper. Simmer for another 5 minutes, whisking occasionally as the gravy thickens. Remove from heat and keep warm.

For the poutine

  1. Peel the sweet potatoes and cut into fries, 3-4 inches long by 1/4 to 1/2-inch wide.
  2. Bring a pot of filtered water to a boil. Add the potatoes and blanch for 3-5 minutes. Remove, drain and cool. Pat with a dish cloth until completely dry.
  3. Preheat oven to lowest setting (warm). Fry the potatoes in coconut oil until golden brown. Remove and drain on paper towels. Season with salt and pepper, and place in warm oven while you prepare the rest of the dish. Strain and reserve oil for future cooking.
  4. Sauté sausage in the same pan that you cooked the potatoes, using a wooden spoon to break apart into small pieces.
  5. Pull broccolini apart into small bite-sized pieces and rinse well. Place broccolini in the pan over medium high heat and cover, steaming for 2-3 minutes until bright green.
  6. Place the fries, sausage, and broccolini on plates. Pour hot gravy over top. Serve immediately.
