You can cook our Mushroom Wellington in the oven straight from frozen.
There's a trick to getting this Wellington to look it's best. Once cooked, place on a chopping board. Then slice in half and then very carefully, cut off the pastry ends and serve with your chosen sides. As for what happens to the ends…well they belong to the chef.
Alternatively, our Mushroom Wellington is amazing when served with Hasselback Potatoes with a watercress and fennel salad - garnished with sprigs of fresh dill (check out our recipe for the perfect Hasselback Potatoes).
A red, Pinot Noir is the perfect match with our vegetarian wellington, its fruitiness and slight earthy flavours are brilliant to put alongside the Mushrooms. A Chianti would be next on the list as it's not too heavy but still smooth. If searching for Vegetarian wines, be sure to check the back of the label.
AT COOK WE USE THE SAME INGREDIENTS YOU WOULD USE AT HOME.
We never put additives or preservatives into our food. We do occasionally use kitchen cupboard ingredients that include some additives in their sub-ingredients (for example Worcestershire Sauce used in our Spaghetti Bolognese, which contains Tamarind Extract).
These cooking instructions are only a guide. Your appliance may have a personality of its own (or a different power rating). Please adjust accordingly.
