In this video our professional chef shows you how to cook the recipe step by step:
To make this delicious dish, you will need the following ingredients:
Before we start cooking, we first need to prepare the vegetables and our vegan chicken substitute. Peel the carrots, celery sticks, onions and garlic cloves and cut them into bite-sized pieces. Clean the mushrooms and cut them in half. Divide the chicken substitute into coarse pieces 🥕🧅.
As a first step, fry the chicken substitute in a hot pan with a little margarine until crispy. Just fry until the substitute has turned a nice golden brown color. Then remove from the pan and set aside 🍽.
In the next step, add the completely prepared vegetables to the pan and sauté them in the margarine. Once the vegetables are soft, add the red wine and let everything simmer for about 10 minutes so that the wine combines well with the vegetables and intensifies the flavor 🍷.
Now put the "chicken" substitute back into the pan and add the vegetable broth, thyme sprigs, bay leaves, lemon zest, salt and pepper. Everything is stirred well and then left to simmer on low heat for about 30 minutes. It is important to keep the lid on the pan so that the flavors can develop optimally 🍲💫.
Finally, season the dish with salt and pepper and serve on hot plates. You can serve the vegan coq au vin with fresh baguette or with rice. Bon appétit! 🇫🇷🥖.
