Gambardeli’s Vegan Wellington Medium
Why not treat yourself to Gambardeli’s award winning Luxury Celebration vegan Wellington? So good we won a silver award at the British Pie Awards, 2019
First we start with our delicious Epic Roast to make our Vegan Wellington. Next we cover the Epic Roast with Chestnut and mushroom Duxelles (pate). Finally we wrap it in a golden puff pastry. Just right for a wonderful centrepiece for your celebration.
The centre of the Wellington is Gambardeli’s Epic Roast, a tender, flavourful, protein. We use a bouquet of herbs and spices to make a full flavour profile that is delightful on its own but fantastic in our Wellington.
We slather our Epic Roast generously with our Chestnut and Mushroom Duxelles, pate. This pate is tasty on its own but it takes our Epic Roast to another level. To make our Duxelles pate we combine whole, roast chestnuts with sautéed chestnut mushrooms and flavourings. Then we generously spread our pate onto our sheet of puff pastry. The outside layer is a crumbly, crunchy, golden puff pastry, blanket that wraps our Epic Roast to make our Fantastic Luxurious Wellington.
Put our Luxury, Vegan Celebration Wellington at the centre piece of your feast.
Make your Christmas special or surprise a friend or relative with this unusual, welcome, indulgent gift of the Luxury Wellington or the hamper.

To bake our Wellington.
To bake Place on a baking sheet, brush with plant based milk and pop into a preheated oven to 180 degrees. For best result preheat the baking sheet to start cooking and avoid a soggy bottom. Bake for about 45 minutes. Check that the inside is hot by inserting a thin bladed knife and carefully testing the blade for heat. The pastry should be golden and crispy.
Top Tip- avoid a soggy bottom.
I check the underside of the Wellington about 30 minutes to check that its cooking. If I think its not cooking, I gently and carefully turn the Wellington upside down and replace to bake for 10 minutes. Then I turn it back to finish off cooking the top.
