Fun, fun fun. That is what I thought when the Idaho Potato Commission asked for Poutine recipes for this week’s Sunday Supper. Poutine is a Canadian dish with French fries topped with cheese curds and gravy. The Idaho Potato Commission challenged us to come up with something new. Of course, there was a twist. You could not use French fries. What? Oh, this was a good one. Time to put on my thinking cap. Potatoes are a fabulous choice for dinner. They have about 110 calories for a small potato with 2 grams of fiber. Additionally they have no saturated fat and are loaded with Vitamin C and potassium. That makes them perfect for a healthy meal.
My inspiration came from one of my favorite Dim Sum dishes, a fried shredded taro cake with shrimp in the middle. I have been wanting to make a healthier version forever. First I thought of substituting the taro for shredded Idaho® potatoes and chopping up some shrimp into the “potato cake”. Next I was going to cut them into logs to look like French fries. While I liked the idea, something was missing.
Then I got a hankering for crispy noodles with stir fried vegetables. I love the contrast of the deep-fried noodles with the saucy stir fry. Since I try not to deep fry food anymore, I needed a substitute. Bingo! That was exactly what I needed. I could combine the two ideas to make this Crispy Potatoes Shrimp Poutine with Stir Fry Vegetables. It’s perfect. I rarely have the proper Chinese noodles in my pantry, but I always have Idaho® potatoes on hand. Idaho® potatoes have to be the most versatile food, plus they are inexpensive. They make a wonderful substitution for noodles.
I just love food challenges like this. It makes me think of being on a Food Network show. What poutine recipe would you make? You can use any type of Idaho® potato except French fries. My fellow Sunday Supper members have come up with some fantastic ideas, too. I cannot forget to tell you about a truly exciting part. There is a contest! Help us celebrate National Sunday Supper Month by entering the Idaho® Potato Let’s Poutine contest.
