Montreal-based company WeCook delivers prepared meals across Quebec and Ontario, and given their tendency towards healthy meals, you wouldn’t think Quebec’s national dish (poutine, of course) would be a fixture of their rotating menu. But it is, as it’s apparently a favourite among WeCook clientele.
How do you make poutine (relatively) healthy? WeCook starts with the foundation: sweet potato fries, baked not deep-fried. Their poutine sauce is gluten-free. They use lean ground Quebec beef instead of a fatty extra protein like bacon. The rich flavour of their sauce is enhanced with caramelized onions. And the coup de grâce is of course the cheese curds — Québécois in origin, of course, in the format we all know and love.
When WeCook whips all these elements together and delivers it to your home — sauce on the side of course — you’ve got a delicious and substantial dish that’s as good for your body as it is for your tastebuds. ■
