Instructions

First sauté the onions, garlic, carrots and celery on medium heat for about 2-3 minutes in a pan. Always use some water. When the onions are golden brown, deglaze the onions with red wine. If you do not use red wine. Add the balsamic, later.

Now put all ingredients for the "filet" in a food processor and mix until you have a hom*ogeneous dough. Taste the mixture again.

In the meantime, you can sauté the chopped cremini mushrooms for the mushroom filling in another pan and add the remaining ingredients and season to taste.Sautee for about 3-4 minutes.

Now take out the puff pastry sheet and spread some of the mushroom mixture on the middle of the pastry sheet, on the mushrooms you put the oval-shaped tofu mixture and coat the roast with the remaining mushrooms. Now put the puff pastry around the filling so that the filling is completely closed. Cut off excess pastry. Then turn the wellington upside down, that the closing side is down. Now cut the puff pastry diagonally or a pattern that you like.

Bake the Wellington on a with parchment paper lined baking sheet in a preheated oven at 350°F (180°C) for about 40 minutes, or until it is brown. Let it cool for about 10 minutes before you cut it.

Hint:Your puff pastry should be cold and not frozen. If you have a frozen puff pastry, just let it thaw in the fridge overnight.

Tips

  • Make sure you do not make the filling too long. The filling should be completely wrapped in puff pastry.
  • Do not panic if some liquid comes out. Simply skim off and continue wrapping.
  • Brushing the puff pastry with aquafaba makes it nice and crispy. No need for a vegan egg wash. Use a pastry brush.
  • Cut the puff pastry diagonally on the top, so steam can escape during baking and it looks pretty.

FAQ

What is a Wellington?

The classic beef Wellington is a meat dish, which allegedly was created for the first time by the Zurich chef Charles Senn in 1930. However, the opinions differ. In 1900, versions of Wellington were found in a German cookbook. Both versions are a variation of the French dish “Filet de boeuf en croute”. Filet Wellington is a fillet of beef wrapped with chopped mushrooms and puff pastry.

Is puff pastry vegan?

Most store-bought puff pastry sheets are vegan. However, puff pastry is not wholesome or whole food plant-based. For those who want to prepare the dish without oil and all-purpose flour, you can easily prepare the shortcrust pastry of my pot pies.
