  • 2 medium onions diced
  • 3 cloves garlic crushed
  • 200 ml dark ale
  • 500 g chestnut mushrooms roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp yeast extract
  • 100 g roughly chopped nuts walnuts, almonds etc
  • 450 g puff pastry sheet


  • Preheat oven to 200°C.
  • In a saucepan with a dash of oil, fry the onions and garlic for 15 minutes or until onions have turned a rich brown colour.
  • Add the mushrooms and cook a further 10-15 minutes.
  • Pour in the ale, yeast extract, smoked paprika and salt and pepper.
  • Leave to reduce on medium heat for 20 minutes until a creamy consistency is reached (no longer watery).
  • Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  • Lay out a sheet of puff pastry and scoop the cold filling onto one side, leaving some space at the edges.
  • Fold over the other half of the pastry and seal the edges by gently pinching down.
  • Tuck the sealed edges underneath the wellington.
  • Brush with plant milk.
  • Score the top with a crisscross pattern.
  • Bake 20-25 minutes.
  • Leave to rest for 15 minutes before serving.


  • Any nuts can be used in this recipe – I used almonds and walnuts
  • Nuts can be omitted and replaced with another protein option such as lentils or tofu chunks
  • Chestnut mushrooms can be replaced with other similar mushrooms such as button mushrooms or portobello chopped roughly
  • If you don’t drink alcohol, the ale can be replaced with vegetable stock
  • Other additions to the wellington include, lentils, chestnut puree and tofu
