Vegan Buffalo Ranch Chick'n Poutine with Jackfruit


A bag of frozen french fries - such as McCains Classic Fries
seasoning salt (optional)

Buffalo Chick'n aka Jackfruit
2 - 20 oz cans of jackfruit in brine
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
salt and pepper
1/4 cup vegan buffalo sauce (or mix hot sauce and vegan butter together)

Buffalo Ranch Sauce
1/2 cup vegan sour cream
1-2 tbsp hot sauce
2 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tbsp dill
1 tbsp chives

Cheese Sauce
I used Hot for Food's Nacho Cheese Sauce - highly recommend!


Prepare the cheese sauce

  1. Make a batch of Hot for Food's cheese sauce. Set aside.

Prepare the jackfruit and fries

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Ensure you have two racks available for cooking.
  2. Drain and rinse jackfruit. Cut hard center points off and break up the chunks into a fry pan. The jackfruit should now resemble pulled apart chicken.
  3. Fry jackfruit in a lightly oiled pan on medium-high heat. Add the spices and cook for 3-4 minutes. Stir in the buffalo sauce and remove from heat.
  4. Place the jackruit in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with tinfoil.
  5. On another baking sheet, lay the frozen french fries in a single layer and top with a bit of seasoning salt (optional).
  6. Bake fries according to packing instructions on the bottom rack. In the last 15 minutes, pop the jackfruit in on the rack above to crisp them up a bit.

Buffalo Ranch sauce

  1. While the fries and jackfruit are in the oven prepare the buffalo ranch sauce.
  2. In a medium bowl, add all the ingredients and thoroughly combine. Add 1 tbsp of hot sauce first and taste test. If you want it hotter, add another tbsp.

Make your poutine!

  1. To make the poutine first place the fries on a large plate. Top with the jackfruit and smother with the cheese and buffalo sauce. Dig in and enjoy!
