You may have heard of beef bourguignon traditionally cooked in red wine but in order to make this recipe vegan, I slightly tweaked the original recipe and replaced the beef with mushrooms to make an absolute vegan hit for my family. This vegan mushroom bourguignon is full of flavour and can be made without any hassle or fancy ingredients.
INGREDIENTS YOU’LL NEED
This Vegan Mushroom Bourguignon is a hearty and a one-pot meal which is absolutely delicious and super easy to make. Also, it requires just the basic ingredients to prepare this meal.
- Onions and garlic – Sautéing these gives a beautiful aroma to the meal and also adds an earthy flavour to it.
- Mushroom, carrots and bell peppers– these can be replaced with any of your favourite vegetables or you can add the vegetables of your choice to this meal.
- Red wine– you can make use of brandy or a mixture of both wine and brandy to cook the bourguignon.

- Greens– I’ve used a handful of spinach to the dish to give it that extra goodness and earthiness.
