Mushroom Wellington

Dec 09, 2021 by

More and more people these days are seeking turkey-free alternatives for their holiday dinners and wellingtons are a beautiful and delicious option! They are deceivingly easy to make (once you get past the fear of working with phyllo pastry…promise it’s easier than it seems!), they look beautiful at the center of your table and they are easily more delicious than dry, flavorless turkey meat. Hope you give this one a shot. If you don’t have all the ingredients, feel free to google “vegan wellington” and hundreds of recipe options will pop up!

A win even amongst non-Vegans!

We tested this recipe out a week out from Christmas, and it was a hit. The only thing we did different was use non-vegan unsalted butter, dry thyme, and the Very Good Butcher brand ‘taco stuffing meat’. We added the salt with the wine and black pepper after not being sure when to add it in. We also had to bake it 45 min to get that nice rosy colour. After this trial run, we made it for Christmas dinner as our main and everyone loved it! We did 7 layers of phyllo this time, and used fresh thyme, and it was even better.
