The taste of this vegan wellington is OUT OF THIS WORLD. Beef Wellington, who?! This recipe is nut-free and excellent for vacation dinner.
If you've got heard of Gordon Ramsay, you maybe recognise concerning the noted Beef Wellington dish that he serves at his restaurants. Or rather, you maybe have stories of him yelling at Hell’s Kitchen contestants about how they fully screwed up the meat wellington. Except he says it with lots of expletives.
I had big, giant desires of creating a pork wellington earlier than I went vegan, and I by no means got round to it. But who says we can’t make a vegan wellington?
Beef Wellington is well-nigh a cut of beef, like filet mignon, rolled up in a pant pastry with a few seasonings.
IS PUFF PASTRY VEGAN?
MOST store-bought puff pastry sheets are fully vegan! My grocery shop includes the Pepperidge Farm brand. It comes pre-rolled in a 10×15 sheet which simply makes life easier. If you discover one which isn't pre-rolled, roll it out to about that dimension if possible.

HOW TO MAKE A VEGAN WELLINGTON
The job of creating a vegan wellington is a lot so much simpler than I expected – we're going to make the filling in a single pot, roll it up in puff pastry, after which bake it.
The filling is fully nut-free. I seen that many vegetarian or vegan wellington recipes contained walnut or pecans (alongside mushrooms). Instead of nuts, we’ll get that similar texture from sunflower seeds and lentils. Sunflower seeds have been a whole hit on this vegan bolognese.
Perhaps essentially in all probability the foremost complex (but it’s not actually complex at all) edge of here is rolling up the filling within the puff pastry. I suggest utilizing an ice cream scoop or a huge spoon to pack the filling tightly, then forming it so it’s extensive sufficient to take in the heart third area. Leave about an inch of room at the ends. Fold up the sides. They ought to overlap about 1/2 an inch or so. Use a bit of water to assist seal the seam.
Then, pinch collectively the ends of the puff pastry. I desire to tuck them in such as you are going to wrap a gift. Again, use a few water to assist seal so the filling doesn’t sneak out.
Flip the puff pastry over so the seal is down. Place on a baking sheet that's lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
HOW TO SCORE PUFF PASTRY
Scoring is a easy technique that 1) permits steam to flee whereas cooking and 2) appears pretty. To rating mine, I simply simply drag a knife diagonally throughout the pastry to make shallow slits, about 1 inch apart. Then, I cross down the reverse way. This creates the diamond shapes. If you don’t desire to get tremendous fancy, you'll be able to simply cut 3-4 slits throughout the pastry.
To create a golden crust with out an egg wash, I brush non-dairy milk throughout the top. Then, simply pop your wellington within the oven and bake till fantastically golden brown!
CAN I MAKE VEGAN WELLINGTON AHEAD OF TIME?
Yes! Follow the classes up till the baking part. Wrap in plastic wrap or shop in a huge container within the fridge for as so much as a day. Bake as instructed, but preserve in thoughts it would possibly take a few additional time.
It’s greatest to devour proper after baking, of course, but I nonetheless actually loved the warmed-up leftovers the subsequent day.
Oh, so delicious Vegan Wellington recipe made with lentils, sunflowers, and additional yummy ingredients.
