Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 sliced shallot
  • Handful of parsnip trimmings
  • 1 finely sliced parsnip
  • 1 tbsp plain flour
  • 100ml vegan red wine
  • reserved porcini soaking liquid made up to 400ml with hot water
  • 1 tbsp truffle oil or 1 tsp cranberry sauce (for a sweeter flavour)

Method

  1. Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a medium saucepan, then add 1 sliced shallot and a handful of parsnip trimmings or 1 finely sliced parsnip.
  2. Cook over a medium heat, stirring, for 10-15 minutes until dark gold and caramelised. Add 1 tbsp plain flour and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes.
  3. Add 100ml vegan red wine a little at a time, followed by the reserved porcini soaking liquid made up to 400ml with hot water, stirring continuously until the gravy thickens.
  4. Simmer for 5 minutes, add salt and pepper to taste, then pass through a sieve and serve. For an extra flourish, add 1 tbsp truffle oil or 1 tsp cranberry sauce (for a sweeter flavour) just before serving, if you like.
