Mushroom Bourguignon

Mushroom Bourguignon

“M” in our Vegetarian Alphabet. We don’t often have wine in the flat, but when we do..... Actually Red Wine and Sue don’t get alone very well, but the small amount in this recipe really made the dish and didn’t hurt!


1 Onion, finely sliced
1 Carrot, thinly sliced
Chestnut Mushrooms, Sliced
Dried Mushrooms, soaked over night
1 ½ tsp Thyme
3 cloves of Garlic, minced
A hearty glug of Red Wine
1 Veg Stock Cube dissolved in 500ml of hot water
2 Bay Leaves
1 tbsp of Tomato Paste
1 tsp of dried Yeast
1 tbsp Cornflour
Salt & Pepper
Oil to fry


(1) Soak your dried Mushrooms in water over night. Drain and set aside.
(2) Fry your Onions and Carrots gently until softened.
(3) Add the Mushrooms, Garlic, Thyme and Salt & Pepper.
(4) Simmer for 5 minutes.
(5) Stir in the Tomato Paste.
(6) Glug in the Wine and bring to the boil.
(7) Reduce the heat and add the Stock, Bay Leaves, Yeast ans Cornflour.
(8) Stir well and cook on a low heat for a further 10 minutes.
(9) Season to taste and serve over Rice Noodles.

Again although we have no intention of going Veggie / Vegan this was a really tasty meal. Served over some Rice Noodles.

Everyone should have access to good food.  No one should have to go to bed hungry.
This petition is a call on the UK Government to fix Universal Credit to prevent more people going hungry. We all rely on the welfare safety net being there for us in times of financial stress or hardship.  But Universal Credit is currently failing in this task. In areas where Universal Credit has been rolled out, Food Banks and other food aid providers report a surge in the numbers of people pushed into greater debt, destitution and hunger as a result of delays, errors, a lack of flexibility and adequate support. 
Sue and I are going to London to present this petition to No.10 Downing Street on the 7th of November 2018, by invitation of friends who probably prevented our death.
Please sign and share  the petition to force change and prevent those most in need from further suffering -
