Vegan Mushroom Wellington

When it comes to vegan holiday main courses, one of my favorite dishes to prepare and indulge in is Vegan Mushroom Wellington. The earthy flavors of mushrooms, the flaky pastry, and the savory filling make it a showstopper at any gathering. Let me share with you my personal take on this delightful dish.


  • Portobello mushrooms
  • Shallots
  • Garlic
  • Thyme
  • Spinach
  • Walnuts
  • Puff pastry
  • Olive oil
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Soy sauce
  • Salt and pepper

I love using portobello mushrooms for this recipe because they have a rich, meaty texture that adds depth to the filling. The combination of shallots, garlic, and thyme brings out a wonderful aroma while sautéing the mushrooms. I also like to add some chopped walnuts for a bit of crunch and a handful of spinach for a pop of color and added nutrition.


To start, I finely chop the shallots and garlic, then sauté them in a pan with some olive oil until they are soft and fragrant. Next, I add the sliced portobello mushrooms and let them cook down until they release their moisture. I splash in some balsamic vinegar and soy sauce to enhance the umami flavor, then toss in the thyme, walnuts, and spinach. Once the mixture has cooled, it’s time to wrap it in puff pastry.

After rolling out the puff pastry, I spoon the mushroom filling onto the center and carefully fold the pastry over, sealing the edges. A simple brush of dairy-free milk on top gives it a beautiful golden finish in the oven.


As the Vegan Mushroom Wellington bakes in the oven, the aroma of the mushrooms and herbs fills the kitchen, building anticipation for the flavorful dish that is about to be served. The golden-brown crust becomes flaky and crisp, while the mushroom filling melds together, creating a tantalizing blend of savory goodness.


Once out of the oven, I eagerly slice into the Wellington, revealing the layers of tender mushrooms and aromatic filling. Each bite is a delightful medley of flavors and textures, leaving everyone at the table impressed and satisfied. Whether it’s a holiday feast or a special gathering, this Vegan Mushroom Wellington is always a hit.


Creating a Vegan Mushroom Wellington not only fills the house with mouthwatering aromas but also brings everyone together to savor a delicious plant-based meal. With its impressive presentation and delectable taste, it has become a staple on my holiday menu. I encourage you to give it a try and share this delightful dish with your loved ones.
