For a while now, the vegan diet has been more than just a trend. It has become a popular diet alternative that not only offers health benefits, but is also an environmentally conscious choice. 🌱 But that doesn't mean we have to give up our favorite dishes. No, on the contrary. With a few adjustments, we can turn almost any traditional dish into a vegan version. Today we're going to look at a perfect example of that: Vegan beef roulades.
It may sound impossible to prepare beef roulades without meat, but we assure you, it's not only possible, but delicious! 🍽️ It's a great way to transform a hearty classic into an animal-friendly version. By using plant-based alternatives, we can create a dish that mimics traditional beef roulades in texture and flavor.
Now we come to the ingredients. To prepare this delicious dish, you will need:
Now that you have all the ingredients ready, let's get to the preparation. Follow these steps to create your vegan beef roulades:
Cut off the ends of the eggplants and then cut them into thin slices. Fry them in a pan with a little oil until they are soft. 🍳 Then let them drain on a paper towel.
Cook the lentils according to the instructions on the package. While the lentils are cooking, peel and chop the onion and garlic. Put them in a hot pan with a little oil and fry them until they are soft. Then add the tomato paste and let it fry for a few minutes. 🥘
Take a slice of eggplant and place a portion of the lentil mixture in the center. Carefully roll it up and secure it with a toothpick. Repeat with the remaining eggplant slices.
Peel and chop the carrots. Add them to the pan where you sautéed the onions and garlic. Add the vegetable broth, red wine and soy sauce and let it simmer. Add the roulades and let them simmer in the sauce until they are cooked through. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Now your vegan beef roulades are ready to serve! 🍽️ Enjoy them with potatoes, rice or pasta and a fresh salad. Bon appetit!
We hope you enjoy cooking and enjoying this delicious meatless recipe. It proves once again that a vegan diet does not mean sacrificing taste or variety.
Remember: Every meal counts! By choosing vegan alternatives, you contribute to a more sustainable and healthier world. 🌍
