Chef Gordon Ramsay may be the most sharp tongued celebrity chef we may have ever seen, but the Master Chef's culinary prowess and expertise makes even the greats of the culinary world bow down to him. The chef's Beef Wellington is not only considered as Chef Ramsay's 'greatest dish' but has also been used as a very difficult cooking challenge in many of the food shows he has judged over the years. While the original dish has starts with the finest fillet steak in the centre, coated with a layer of duxelles and then wrapped in a delicate puff pastry before being baked, it may not be the easiest dish to cook up.
However, this vegan recipe for Wellington is not only healthy and delicious, but relatively easier to make than the original and intimidating Beef Wellington. Check out the Gordon Ramsay approved dish that is served up at his Dubai restaurant, Bread Street Kitchen:
