I have just found out about Vegan MoFo, not sure if I have to register or what, but anyway, I am happy to post lots of Vegan Recipes this month! I will start with this one:
Portobello Mushroom Escalopes
If you are a vegan then mushrooms can be one of your super-foods (among many other super foods, of course)!
Clean the Portobello mushrooms with a damp cloth. Heat some olive oil with a few peeled garlic cloves, then place the mushrooms in the pan, top side down. Move them around with a spatula, so that they don't stick to the pan, but do not turn them. When they start to brown at the bottom sprinkle a little salt, and then add a glass of wine. Cover and let them simmer on low for about 20 minutes. They should put out lots of water, but if not add just a little water, if they become too dry. After 20 minutes turn them over and let more of the juices come out. With a sieve add one tsp of flour (or corn flour if you are gluten free) and stir: the juices, mixed with the flour, should make a nice gravy/sauce. Taste for salt, and then add plenty of freshly chopped parsley. Serve with polenta, or potatoes, or cous cous, or even in a bun as a veggie burger.
