My guests were wowed by this recipe, and I was surprised!


I’ll be honest, I was a little nervous about making this dish. I’m a vegetarian, and I wasn’t sure how my meat-and-butternut squash-loving guests were going to react to a meatless main course. But boy, I was surprised by their reactions I think they will adore me! This Portobello Wellington with Vegan Gravy was a hit for everyone, and I even had some guests asking for the recipe.


The first thing that you notice about this Wellington is the puff pastry. It’s flaky and golden brown, and it’s the perfect base for the savory filling. The filling is made with portobello mushrooms, butternut squash, and several herbs and spices. It’s hearty and satisfying, and it has a beautiful umami flavor that will have your guests coming back for more.


The gravy is what really takes this dish over the top. It’s made with red wine, tamari, caramelized shallot, vegetable broth, and all-purpose flour, and seasoned with kosher salt and black pepper. It’s rich and flavorful, and it pairs perfectly with the flaky pastry and savory filling. Trust me, your guests are going to be impressed!


So, if you’re looking for a show-stopping vegetarian main course, look no further than this Portobello Wellington with Vegan Gravy. The flaky pastry, savory filling, and delicious gravy will have your guests coming back for seconds (and thirds!). Give it a try at your next dinner party and see for yourself how amazing it is.

Everyone who tried it loved it and said it was the best Wellington they had ever had. One great thing about this recipe has easy-to-find ingredients and simple-to-follow instructions and the end result is absolutely delicious.


For the filling, you will need, vegetable oil, onion, butternut squash, mushrooms, thyme, rosemary, garlic, spinach, hazelnuts, kosher salt, black pepper, garlic, vegan egg wash, and vegan puffy pastry. If you are using store-bought make sure that they are fresh as they taste better.


And for the vegan gravy, you will need, all-purpose flour, vegetable oil, shallots, red wine, vegetable stock, raw sugar, tamari, kosher salt, and black pepper.


And to make this appetizing recipe, 


To make the filling heat the vegetable oil then sautee the onions, and set aside and chop the leafy greens. Second, you will need to bake the butternut squash and mushroom for 20 minutes on a separate baking sheet and sprinkle them with leafy greens, seasoned with olive oil, kosher salt, and black pepper. Third, toast the hazelnuts for 5 minutes, and don’t over-toast. Fourth, saute the mushroom caps for 5 minutes. And lastly, sautee the garlic with spinach and season with kosher salt, and cook for 5 minutes.


Arrange the filling, in a medium bowl, and mix all the baked, chopped, and cooked filling as always season with kosher salt and black pepper. Arrange them into vegan puff pastry just like the picture and brush with vegan egg wash and bake for 25 minutes at 400˚F.


To prepare the vegan gravy, caramelize the shallots with heated oil for 10 minutes then stir to combine the all-purpose flour and cook again for 5 minutes. Gently add the vegetable broth and red wine and continue to cook for 3 minutes, then add the raw sugar, and tamari and season with kosher salt and pepper, adjust to taste if needed.
