    35 minutes

    This is my vegan version of beef bourguignon. Tofu and mushrooms are simmered in a wine sauce. Serve with rice or bread.

    Used different ingredients. I substituted seitan for the tofu, and this was without a doubt the most delicious dinner I have ever made. Especially with the seitan, it is an unusually hearty vegetarian meal.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Used different ingredients. I tried this recipe for my first vegetarian dinner for vegetarian friends, and it went down really well. I added mushrooms to give a bit more variety, and therefore needed a bit more wine / water to make it a bit more 'saucy'. I still found it was only enough for about 3 people, so add more tofu or other vegetables for 4 people. The 'bourgignon' taste was great and worked really well as the wine soaks into the tofu... yum!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. I found the sauce to thin, but I suppose if you follow the ingredient amounts then it wouln't be, I added to much tofu so I added more wine with water, more mushrooms and tomatos. It was tasty, I don't think it lacked flavour and I found that the tofu did soak up a little of the wine flavour.  -  29 Sep 2008
