Meatless Monday Christmas Special - Mushroom and Chestnut Wellington

Vegans need not feel deprived at Christmas when they can enjoy something as delicious as this Mushroom and Chestnut Wellington. Even your meat eating friends may be converted!

Serves 3-4
You will need
1 tbsp rapeseed oil or olive oil
1 onion, peeled and chopped
2 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced
200g chestnut mushrooms, sliced
100g chestnuts, roasted, peeled and sliced (make a slit in each before roasting to prevent them exploding!)
1 tsp pink salt 
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried rosemary
100g breadcrumbs
2 tbsp coconut cream
1 roll dairy free ready made puff pastry

Fry the onion in the olive oil for 3 minutes.  Add the garlic and mushrooms and continue to cook over a low heat for 3-5 minutes.  

Place in a blender with the chestnuts, salt, herbs and breadcrumbs and pulse so that pieces of mushrooms and chestnuts remain.  Stir in the coconut cream.  

Unroll the pastry with the long edge to the top of a lightly floured chopping board.  Place the mushroom and chestnut mixture in the middle of the pastry.  Fold the pastry over the mixture and squeeze the pastry together at the top (like a Cornish pasty).  Fold the pastry ends in.  

Transfer to a greased baking tray and bake at 200 degrees for 30 - 40 minutes.  Enjoy with the usual vegetables and vegan gravy.

    The meaning of this is that you actually burn fat by eating coconut fat (also coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).

    These 3 studies from large medicinal magazines are sure to turn the traditional nutrition world upside down!
