Vegan, Sugar free, Soy free.

All of these ingredients can be purchased at a grocery store like Nature’s Fare.  I used all organic ingredients.

I really wanted to make a vegan gravy so I could recreate my own version of a poutine.  This sauce turned out to be a Cheesy Gravy that goes wonderfully on top of yam fries! I was so pleased with the result that I’ve been putting this sauce on everything from chicken to crackers. It’s so yummy.

Ingredients for fries:

  • 3-4 large yams
  • 2Tb coconut oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Ingredients for sauce:

  • 1/2 cup soaked and rinsed raw cashews
  • 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
  • 2 cups vegetable broth or chicken broth
  • 1tsp herbamare
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 TB arrowroot powder


Peal and cut up yams. Place on baking sheet with the coconut oil and salt and pepper on top. Bake for about 30 min at 375, mixing them around half way through. I like to finish them off with a 5 minute broil as well.

Place all the ingredients for the sauce in the blender, heat in a small saucepan on low heat just to warm it up and to let the arrowroot powder thicken it as it gets warm. Stir constantly with a  whisk.

Serve over the yam fries! Enjoy the gravy-cheesy- gooeyness of your creation!
