How about daring the veggie bourguignon?

Bourguignon Veggie

Don't be fooled by appearances… This autumn Burgundy , with carrots and mushrooms, is no longer vegan . The trick that changes everything? The jackfruit to replace meat.

A vegetable and foodporn recipe signed by Marie Laforêt , the vegan queen of Instagram. To consume without moderation !

For 4 people.


  • Rinse and drain the jackfruit . Remove large seeds and very hard parts.

  • Peel the shallots , separate the buds .

  • Peel the garlic , remove the germ and pass the cloves through a garlic press.

  • Peel the potatoes , rinse them and place them in a bowl filled with water.
  • Peel the carrots and cut them at an angle or lengthwise according to your preference.

  • In a medium-sized casserole dish with a lid (enameled cast iron or with a thick bottom), heat the oil over medium heat, place the shallots in it , add the smoked paprika , the mushrooms, cleaned and cut into medium-sized pieces.

  • Add the jackfruit, potatoes, carrots and mix. When the mixture begins to color, add the garlic.

  • Mix. Sprinkle the flour in the casserole dish and mix again.

  • Mix the half-cube of broth with the soy sauce and hot water. Pour the resulting broth into the casserole dish and mix well.

  • Pour in the wine , add the bouquet garni and reduce heat to low. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover. Cook for 1 to 2 hours, the vegetables should be tender but hold together, the jackfruit should be tender and tasty. Adjust the seasoning if necessary.

  • Monitor the cooking from time to time to check that it does not stick to the bottom of the casserole dish. Remove the bouquet garni , serve in soup plates, with a few sprigs of parsley .

The trick: this recipe must really simmer for a long time over low heat to develop all its flavors. It can be prepared the day before and be reheated on the day.
