Fries for me are the epitome of comfort food like these Animal Style Fries, served with an amazing Fry Sauce

But what makes any food even more comforting? Right: a delicious gravy to pour it over everything. Something like my Mushroom Gravy.

Poutine vs Disco Fries

Poutine is served across Canada and made with regular French fries, a gravy and cheese.

While disco fries are more common in the US using fries, gravy and mozzarella.

Vegan butter is melted in a saucepan, with flour being whisked in.

Why these are the best Disco Fries

The standout is really the vegetarian gravy. This is so tasty, I could drink it on its own. Try and you’ll know what I’m talking about.

Everything is easy to make with clear step by step pictures, so you always get the perfect result.

The combination of fries and gravy is seriously the best thing that could be happen.

What’s in this vegetarian gravy

So easy to make with simple ingredients, creamy, rich and just the right amount of flavors.

What you need is:

  • Vegetable broth
  • Coconut milk
  • Vegan butter
  • Flour
  • Vegan Worchester sauce
  • Tamari
  • Mustard powder
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder
  • Paprika

Baked fries are transferred to a casserole dish and mixed with vegan mozzarella shreds.

Further you will need for this disco fries recipe:

  • Fries, obviously
  • Vegan mozzarella

Mozzarella is melted in the fries, then covered with vegetarian gravy.

How to make Disco Fries

Preheat your oven to 410°F. Distribute the fries on a baking sheet with parchment paper and bake them according to the package directions.

At around half of the time for baking the fries, heat vegan butter in a saucepan. Carefully whisk in the flour.

Add vegetable broth, coconut milk, mustard powder, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, vegan Worchester sauce, tamari sauce, while whisking all the time. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

Then, let everything simmer on low heat until it is thick and creamy.

Fries should be done now. Make sure they deliciously crisp and golden. Take them out of the oven, season with salt and pepper.

Transfer the fries to a 10 inch round casserole dish and mix them with vegan mozzarella. Put them back in the oven and bake for 5 minutes more until the cheese is melted.

Finally pour a good amount of gravy on the fries, serve in bowls or on plates. Or enjoy directly from the casserole dish.

Leftovers

I don’t recommend keeping any leftovers of the Disco Fries. Because reheating baked fries just turn into mush and are not enjoyable.

However, if there is any leftover gravy, you can stored that for at least 4 days in the fridge.

You can then later reuse it over vegetables, pasta and so much more, yum.
