Description

A Vegan Mushroom Wellington stuffed with savory sweet potatoes, caramelized onion and fresh springs of rosemary. A fantastic vegan spin on the classic Beef Wellington. 


Scale

Ingredients

  • 3 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 3 large cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1.5 tbsp olive oil (divided) (extra virgin)
  • 2 cups chopped onion
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 medium sweet potato (cooked, removed from skin & mashed)
  • 1 vegan puff pastry (thawed for 40 minutes)
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • sea salt and pepper (to taste)

For the Vegan Egg Wash

  • 1 tbsp aquafaba ((chickpea water))
  • 1 tbsp almond milk
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius). In a large frying pan over medium heat, add 1 tbsp olive oil followed by the chopped onion. Saute until translucent, stirring occasionally. 
  2. Turn up heat to high and add coconut sugar to onions until they are golden brown. Remove from heat & pan, set aside. 
  3. Return pan to heat, add remaining olive oil, garlic, mushrooms, sea salt and pepper and saute until lightly wilted. Remove from heat and place on plate lined w/ paper towels. Fold paper towels around mushrooms and turn over, allowing them to drain. Transfer onions, mushrooms and sweet potato to freezer to cool for 10-15 minutes. 
  4. When the veggies are cool, unfold puff pastry on a lined baking sheet. Spread half of caramelized onions over middle third of pasty leaving about 3/4 inch (2 cm) on each side. Follow with a layer of mashed sweet potato, then a layer of mushrooms and top with Dijon mustard and sprigs of rosemary. Season with sea salt and pepper, if needed. 
  5. Roll the pastry VERY CAREFULLY over the top of the mushroom mixture until it forms a log. Press down on the pastry edges to make a seal. Gently roll the log over so the seam is on the bottom. 
  6. To make the vegan egg wash, whisk all the ingredients together in a small bowl. Brush a thin veil of the wash over the top and sides of the pastry. Using a sharp knife, cut zig-zags over the top of the pastry. Place in freezer for 10 minutes, then repeat with another layer of vegan egg wash. 
  7. Bake for 40 minutes, depending upon your oven time. Your pastry is done when the crust is golden brown. 

Notes

  • Best served right out of the oven, however, may cover, allow to cool and refrigerate until ready to eat. 
  • If you don’t have ingredients for vegan egg wash, just use olive oil. 
  • Cook times will vary, depending upon your oven. Pastry is done when top and sides are golden brown and crust if flaky. 
  • The calorie content is without aquafaba. 
  • To prevent ends from being overdone, place foil over them during the last 10 minutes of the baking process.
