Beef Wellington is a very popular dish featuring filet steak coated with pâté. To make this dish appeal to those with a meatless diet, chef Dina Cheney created the 'Beet Wellington.'
Cheney utilizes protein-rich ingredients to ensure her version of the UK dish is just as satisfying and filling. In place of the filet mignon, pâté and truffles, this dish incorporates red wine, mushrooms, creamy herb-flecked goat cheese along with many other rich ingredients. Underneath the flaky butter crust is a beet "steak" which replaces the conventional cow meat. Topping off the dish is a succulent Pinot Noir sauce. However, it can be eaten without.
This vegetarian version of Beef Wellington is the perfect dish for a romantic evening or holiday. It also goes well with a savory red wine.
