Mushroom Wellingtons {A Meatless Monday Recipe

Mushroom Wellingtons {A Meatless Monday Recipe

I made Mushroom Wellingtons last Monday for Meatless Monday. I was so excited how these turned out, that I almost could not wait to post about it.

This recipe is a spin-off the classic Beef Wellington recipe, this vegetarian version uses Portobello mushroom caps, spinach and cheese stuffed inside of a flaky pastry crust.

Here’s how I made them:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Remove stems from the mushrooms (if they have any). Heat half the oil in a large frying pan and sauté the mushrooms for 3 to 4 mins on each side until golden and cooked through – add a drop more oil if needed. Remove the mushrooms from the pan and place onto a paper towel to drain.

Place the same pan back on the heat with the rest of the oil. Sauté the garlic for about 30 seconds (DO NOT BURN).

Add the spinach to the pan, then cook for 2 to 3 mins over a high heat until completely wilted. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Place the spinach into a large sieve to drain thoroughly, while preparing the pastry.

Scatter dried thyme leaves on a lightly floured surface.

Roll out the chilled pastry out to the thickness of a coin.

Using a saucer or lid to a plastic container, cut out 3 to 4 circles about ½-inch wider than the mushrooms (for the bottoms).

Next, roll out another sheet, or re-roll the trimmings if you needed. Cut out 3 to 4 circles about 1-inch wider (for the tops).

Place the smaller circles on a baking tray. Top each with a quarter to a third of the spinach, making sure the pile of spinach isn’t wider than the mushrooms.

Top the spinach with a slice of cheese, then a mushroom cap, smooth-side up.

Gently stretch the larger circle over the mushroom, trying not to trap any air.

Fold the edges over and press the edges together with a fork.

These took a little bit of prep, but I had so much fun making them. I have to say I have never had the meat version, but this meatless version was awesome! I hope you will give them a try, you won’t regret it!
