Veggies bourguignon

Beef bourguignon is one of French traditional dishes. It needs time to marinate meat and slow cook. I could say it’s so delicious. By the way, Veggies bourguignon is quite delicious as well, I have to admit that. The ingredients are the same as beef bourguignon but you replace meat with veggies. In my recipes I used ancien vegetables… I actually made vegetable in the oven, I had so much left over so I turned it into viggies bourguignon. I just added some red wine and laurel, salt, sugar and black pepper then some cooking time.

Here we need

1 parsnip

2 carrots

3 potatoes

half of pumpkin

1 rutabaga

1 celery rave

garlic, shallots, olive oil

Bourgogne red wine

seasoning

2tbp of wheat flour

sugar ( I used it to adjust the taste of wine )

salt, black pepper

thyme , laurel, 2 cloves

How to make it

  1. Pre heat the oven to maxi for 15 mins
  2. I cut my veggies in pieces added salt, black pepper, olive oil, garlic, shallots, thyme, laurel all in one then seasoning as your taste and put in 30 minutes in the oven. ( you can enjoy your veggies like that and add some balsamique venegar or you can continue to the step 3 )

     

  3. Transfer the veggies in a hot pan, stir with some olive oil then add 1 or 2 tbp of wheat flour ( corn flour). Keep stirring to cook flour with veggies.
  4. then added red wine, keep stirring. You can add some veggie broth if you have or water. keep stirring about 5 mins then lower the heat to the lowest.
  5. now you can add some sugar , then cover the pan and let it cook for 20 mins. Ps- keep your eyes on it cuz it can burn so keep stirring from time to time. you can cook longer if you think it’s necessary.

Now here you have it mmmmm

Cep wild mushrooms

Such a beautiful day that I had a chance to go to Flee market which is just right in front of my apartment. I walked around then a stand which full of mushrooms caught my eyes. I grabbed some cep mushrooms to make as side dish with my grilled chicken. This would be wonderful. Mmmm

It’s so French, lol… Cèpe persillé…

Here I needed

200g of cep mushrooms

Half brunch of persil ( minced)

2 cloves of garlic ( minced)

Chicken cooking sauce (Since I also grilled my chicken,  I use some chicken cooking sauce for my cep mushrooms recipes)

A pin of salt and black pepper for seasoning

How to make it

  1. Cleaned up mushrooms and throw few second in hot boiling water to clean the dirt from them, then rinse with cold water.( advice from the seller lol)…  cut as you desire then set aside.
  2. Heat a frying pan wait until it turns hot then put chicken cooked sauce in. Next add minced garlic and persil. stir well until you smell fragrance from the mixture then put your mushrooms in. stir well, salt and pepper. stir again for couple of minutes the voila.

Oh gosh… heaven is just in front of you… mmmm
