Portobello Mushroom Bourguignon

2.8 (2 reviews)

2 Tbsp. olive oil
1/4 cup flour
Dry seasonings (such as salt, seasoned salt, pepper, dried herbs, or spices), to taste
4 large Portobello mushroom caps, quartered
2 medium onions, quartered
3 carrots, cut into 2-inch pieces
3 medium potatoes, scrubbed and quartered
2 bay leaves
2 sprigs of fresh rosemary
1/2 cup dry red wine
1/2 cup orange juice
1 vegetable bouillon cube
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup Bragg’s Liquid Aminos (available from www.bragg.com)
Water, if needed
Nondairy parmesan “cheese,” optional (try Soymage brand—www.galaxyfoods.com)

• Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
In a bowl, combine the flour and dry seasonings. Dredge the mushrooms in the flour mixture then sauté them in the olive oil until browned.
• Place the mushrooms in a large baking dish with a lid, such as a terra cotta baker. Add the onions, carrots, potatoes, bay leaves, and rosemary and set aside.
• Using the same skillet that you used to sauté the mushrooms, bring the wine, orange juice, bouillon cube, soy sauce, and Bragg’s liquid aminos to a boil. The liquid should be slightly thickened by the flour that was left in the skillet after sautéing the mushrooms. Reduce the heat and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes. If the gravy is too thick or strong in flavor, add some water. Allow the gravy to cool for 20 minutes.
• Pour the gravy over the mushrooms and other vegetables in the baking dish. Cover and bake at 325˚F for 1 hour or until the vegetables are tender.
• Remove the bay leaves and sprinkle the parmesan “cheese” over the top. Serve immediately. Try serving with crusty bread or over wide noodles.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
