  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, crushed 
  • 250g Fable 
  • ½ cup boiling water, mixed with 2 tbsp of plant-based “beef” stock 
  • ½ cup pasta sauce 
  • ¼ cup tamari or soy sauce 
  • ½ cup red wine 
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup  
  • 2 bay leaves  
  • Salt and pepper, to taste 

Mashed potatoes:

  • 4 large potatoes 
  • 2 tbsp plant-based butter  
  • ¾ cup plant-based milk of choice 
  • Black ground pepper, to taste

Additional ingredients:

  • Freshly chopped coriander and basil 
  • Vegan parmesan or nutritional yeast


  1. In a bowl, put together boiling water, plant-based stock and Fable to help soften and break up the chunks. 
  2. Heat up a frying pan with olive oil, add chopped onions and crushed garlic. Cook until the onion is translucent, not brown. With a fork, shred up the Fable in the stock. Add the remaining sauce ingredients including the stock into the pan with onion and garlic. Reduce to a low heat and simmer the sauce for about 30 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened. 
  3. Peel and boil potatoes until soft and drain completely. In the pot of potatoes, add vegan butter, half the amount of milk and mash together. Add more milk as you mash if desired. Continue to mash until the potatoes are soft and smooth. 
  4. To serve, spoon a generous amount of mash onto a plate then add red wine Fable sauce on top. Garnish with chopped herbs, cracked pepper and vegan parmesan.

    This is so good. I made it with about half the soy sauce as I ran out and it was still really flavoursome. I will definitely be making this again. Good choice if you want to impress someone!

    Fantastic product! I fooled all my family into thinking I had used meat in their stew! They were amazed how wonderful the recipe was….I challenged their perceptions of vegan food. Well done!!
