Food & NUTRITION at the Rail Yards Market

This Week's Recipe!

Poutine de Burque

Though it’s not clear who the originator was, poutine emerged from Quebec in the late 1950’s with three simple tenets . . . fries, cheese curds, and brown gravy. Served at diners called cantines in Quebec, or ‘potato shacks’, the dish, though at first receiving mixed or even negative reviews, has definitely caught on with the rest of the world. There are even festivals held across Canada and the Northern US, dedicated to what some say is a Québécois slang word for ‘mess. Down here at the Rail Yards Market in New Mexico, we did to poutine just what we’re supposed to do . . . add green chile! And ‘tis the season. For some extra nutrients, and to keep it farm fresh, we’re mixing in the kale and green onions. We hope you enjoy this Canadian transplant!
