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

stir fried clear noodle

How to make

  1.  Heat up a pan and fill with a cup of water, if you have chicken stock even better. When water is boiled put half of the sauce in the water and then put the clear noodles, wait till it almost cooked ( add water if neccesary ) and then remove noodles from the pan. Set aside. by doing this your clear noodle will absorbs the taste of sauce and water. This makes the dish tastes even better
  2. Heat up the pan and put some oil, fry the Tufu till they turn golden brown. set aside
  3. With the same pan you throw ginger, shallots and follow by dry shrimps in. mmmm it will seduce you with the aroma. Then throw mushrooms in. Stir well, then put some of the sauce in. Stir well and let it cook little bit then throw the fried tofu in. Mix them really well.
