Vegan bourguignon with hearty vegetables and rich red wine sauce

The 14th of July each year is a very special day. It’s “La Fête Nationale”, also known as French national day or Bastille day. I’m so happy to share this incredible recipe (if I say so myself ????) to celebrate.

For me, this bourguignon illustrates how far plant-based options have come and how there is really no need to compromise on taste, even for traditional French cuisine, which is known for being very heavy in meat and dairy.

To create this recipe, I enlisted the help of my lovely Mamie (grandma in French), who sent out the instructions on how she usually makes it at home. I love being able to share food and traditions with my family.

Servings 6


  • ½ cup vegan butter
  • 5 yellow onions, diced
  • 500 g plant-based beef
  • 4 carrots
  • 4 springs fresh thyme
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 250 g small button mushrooms
  • 6 cloves garlic, diced
  • ½ cup flour
  • 4 cups vegetable or plant-based beef stock
  • 3 cups red wine
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Dice the onions and add them to a pot on medium heat with the butter. Cook for 5 minutes until they become translucent.
  • While the onions are cooking, wash and chop the carrots. Halve the mushrooms and finely dice the garlic. Add the plant-based beef to the pot and cook for 5 minutes, stirring regularly.
  • Add the carrots, garlic, mushrooms, thyme, and bay leaves to the pot. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook for another 5 minutes. If necessary, use some of the broth to de-glaze the pot.
  • Add the flour to the pot and stir well for a couple of minutes. Then add the rest of the stock and the wine. Stir well, lower the heat, and cook covered for 20 minutes.
  • Continue to cook for an additional 20 minutes uncovered, stirring regularly. Add salt to taste. Before serving, remove the bay leaves and thyme.
  • Serve the Vegan Bourguignon with fresh chopped parsley and a side of mashed potato or pasta.
