Portobello "Pot Roast" 

Serves 4 

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp. (30 ml) olive oil 
  • 2 yellow onions, sliced 
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced 
  • 6 tbsp. (46 g) all-purpose flour 
  • 3 cups (708 ml) stout beer or other dark beer, such as porter 
  • 3 cups (708 ml) vegetable broth 
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) vegan Worcestershire sauce (see note) 
  • ¼ cup (66 g) tomato paste 
  • 2 tbsp. (5 g) fresh sage, slivered 
  • ¼ cup (10 g) chopped fresh basil 
  • 2 tbsp. (5 g) chopped fresh rosemary 
  • Salt, to taste 
  • Black pepper, to taste 
  • 4 portobello mushroom caps, stems and gills removed 
  • 2 cups (300 g) baby carrots 
  • 10 Yukon Gold potatoes, unpeeled and chopped into 1-inch (2.5-cm) pieces 
  • Fresh rosemary sprigs (optional)

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C, or gas mark 4). 
  2. Heat the olive oil in a very large, ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic, and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Add the flour to make a roux, stirring frequently for 1 minute. Slowly add the beer and vegetable broth to make a sauce. 
  3. Add the Worcestershire sauce, tomato paste, sage, basil, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Add the portobellos, carrots, and potatoes. Use a spoon to coat the vegetables with the sauce. 
  4. Transfer the skillet to the oven. Roast for 1 hour, or until the vegetables are tender. Serve with sprigs of rosemary for garnish (if using). 
  5. Note: Be sure to choose a vegan variety of Worcestershire sauce. Annie's and The Wizard's are both reliable brands.
