If you are looking for a flavor packed gluten-free, vegan meal this Mushroom Bourguignon is for you!

This dish is so rich and flavorful and will remind you of the classic bourguignon dish without the meat. 

I love how easy this dish is to make on a busy night. You can have it on the table in under a half hour. 

I like to serve this over mashed potatoes but you can also serve it over polenta, mashed cauliflower, egg noodles or orzo. 

I try to serve my family at least a couple of vegetarian meals a week and this one is a great option!

TIPS FOR MAKING MUSHROOM BOURGUIGNON

For those that don’t want to use red wine you can find ideas on what to substitute at this link. Otherwise you can use more vegetable broth and a bit of lemon juice.

You can add other vegetables into this dish if you want. Some I like are bell peppers, zucchini, shiitake mushrooms, portobello mushrooms, zucchini, peas or pumpkin. 

The traditional bourguignon recipe uses beef so if you want to make a non-vegan version try this one here

If you want to thicken the sauce even more stir in flour or corn starch when you are sautéing the mushrooms in the beginning. 

You can sub the tomato paste with butternut squash puree, sweet potato puree or canned pumpkin puree.

You can use pearl onions instead of regular onion if you can find them.
