VEGAN MUSHROOM BOURGUIGNON WITH POTATO CAULIFLOWER MASH
Bourguignon is a French recipe traditionally made with beef and it’s called Beef bourguignon or boeuf bourguignon. However, in order to make this recipe vegan I replaced the red meat (beef) with mushrooms. They are a great alternative to meat thanks to their flavor and texture. Furthermore, you can use a great variety of mushrooms for this recipe and you can combine them too; such as cremini, Portobello mushrooms cap, porcini, shitake, or even canned cooked mushrooms.
In fact, this delicious and comforting vegan mushroom bourguignon with potato cauliflower mash is great for vegan cooking. This warm and filling recipe is ideal for a main dish at Christmas dinner, Thanksgiving, or a lovely Sunday meal. Furthermore, this recipe proves that you can make a plant-based meal full of flavor, nutritious and healthy too.
SEASONING FOR BOURGUIGNON
One of the main seasoning ingredients for this recipe is fresh thyme; however, I’m not a big fan of this herb and I use it from time to time. Therefore, is not included in this recipe but I added it to the following seasoning list. This is because, as I did when I replaced the meat, you can adjust the seasoning to your liking.
- Fresh herbs; such as fresh thyme, fresh parsley, and chopped chives.
- Black pepper/white pepper (freshly ground).
- Smoked paprika.
- Onion powder.
