How to make mushroom burgundy sauce
Saute onions in water until softened. Then, add garlic, mushrooms, carrots, and spices to pan. Saute until mushrooms are golden, tender and moisture has evaporated. You want to keep the brown bits on the bottom of the pan to add flavor to your reduction.
Now, add wine and loosen the bits. Add tomatoes, worchestershire sauce and green onions. Reduce this sauce to half its volume.
While this is reducing, take your pre-made polenta and soften in the microwave. Stir in your cup of non-dairy milk until smooth.
That's it! Serve your burgundy mushrooms over the polenta topped with a bit of chopped parsley.
It's all in the sauce. These plant-based recipes are proof:
