Equipment

  • Food Processor

Ingredients
  

vEEF® Filling

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • ¼ large brown onion, diced
  • ½ carrot, diced
  • 1 thyme sprig
  • garlic
  • 2x vEEF® Classic Burger Patties, defrosted
  • 3 asparagus spears

Mushroom Filling

  • 250g button mushrooms
  • 250g spinach
  • salt & pepper, to taste

Pastry

  • 1 plant-based puff pastry sheet

Mustard & Pepper Gravy

  • 1 tbsp vegan beef stock
  • 1 thyme sprig
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 tbsp plain white flour
  • 1 ½ tbsp mustard
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • salt, to taste

Instructions
 

vEEF® Filling

  • Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the onion, carrot, thyme sprig and garlic, and fry until the onion is translucent. 
  • Discard the thyme sprig and combine the vegetables with the vEEF® Classic Burger Patties in a large bowl. 
  • Flatten out the mix on a large sheet of cling film and create a square shape 2-3cm thick.
  • Place the raw asparagus in the middle and roll the mix up into a large sausage shape. Chill in the fridge for 2 hours. 

Mushroom Filling

  • Blitz the mushrooms into a paste in a food processor.
  • In a dry pan over medium heat, fry the mushroom paste (this dries it out so it doesn’t dampen the pastry).
  • Blanch the spinach in a large pot of salted, boiling water for 15 seconds. Drain and press the spinach to remove excess water. Chop the spinach.
  • Combine the spinach and mushroom paste along with salt and pepper to taste.

Let's Build!

  • Pre-heat oven to 210°C.
  • Sprinkle some flour onto your work bench and roll out the pastry until it’s 2-3mm thick.
  • Spread the mushroom and spinach paste onto ¾ of the pastry leaving a clean 1cm edge all around the pastry.
  • Arrange the vEEF® Filling roll in the centre of the pastry and wrap it up creating a roll (use water to help the pastry stick).
  • Line a tray with baking paper and bake the vEEF® Wellington for 30 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.

It's Gravy Time!

  • Bring vegan beef stock to the boil with thyme and garlic then set aside.
  • Combine oil and flour in a pan over medium-high heat to form a roux. Cook for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add 1 tbsp of the stock and whisk until smooth.
  • Finish with the mustard, pepper, salt and a drizzle of olive oil.

Notes

Serve with a side of fresh salad for a comforting main meal.
