This spin on the bistro staple steak frites offers plenty of umami satisfaction in the form of juicy, meaty portobello mushrooms and a savory wine sauce. Finishing the sauce with a touch of vegan butter gives it luxurious and velvety consistency.
2 baked baking potatoes, cooled and cut lengthwise into 8 wedges each
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 400°.
Combine first 3 ingredients, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl. Add mushrooms; toss gently to coat. Arrange mushrooms, cap sides down, on a jelly-roll pan. Bake at 400° for 12 minutes or until tender. Remove from oven. Place 1 mushroom on each of 4 plates. Add wine, stock, and mustard to jelly-roll pan; stir with a whisk to mix with mushroom juices. Pour wine mixture into a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil; cook until wine mixture is reduced to 1/4 cup (about 15 minutes). Combine 1 teaspoon water and cornstarch, stirring with a whisk. Stir cornstarch mixture into wine mixture; boil 1 minute or until mixture begins to thicken, stirring constantly with a whisk. Remove from heat. Add vegan butter and tarragon, stirring until butter melts.
Heat canola oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add potato wedges; cook 3 minutes on each side or until the wedges are browned. Sprinkle with remaining salt and pepper and serve with mushrooms and wine sauce.

The whole dish was easy to make and came together quite quickly. The sauce really makes this dish memorable and absolutely delicious. I used regular butter to stir into the sauce, rather than vegan. Next time, I might coat the potato wedges with cooking spray and broil them in the oven rather than cooking them in a skillet. I look forward to making this dish again.
