I recently made demi-glace for the first time for a recipe… and had a hard time finding a vegetarian or vegan version out there!  So I made one. Used in French cooking, demi-glace is a rich thick stock used for adding into sauces or topping proteins.  This meatless version will amp up your next soup, stew, or gravy!

I originally made this demi-glace for a bourguinon stew!  It was such a fantastic addition to the recipe… although the demi-glace does take time, I would 100% recommend it to thicken and flavor any saucy dish you are making.

How Do I Make This Vegetarian Demi-Glace?

  1. To a large pot, melt the butter over low heat. Add the carrots, celery, onion, and mushrooms and cook for 5 or 6 minutes until the vegetables become translucent and cook down.
  2. Stir in the flour, which should make a thick paste. Cook for 1-2 minutes.
  3. Add 3 cups of the vegetable stock, and stir well until a creamy stock begins to form.
  4. Add the spice sachet to the pot.  Simmer uncovered for 20 minutes, until the sauce has reduced by about half.
  5. Strain out the vegetables (and save them for another recipe!) until only the sauce and sachet remain.
  6. Add the remaining 2 cups of Vegetable stock to the pot, and simmer for another 45 minutes until the sauce has reduced into a thick and creamy consistency. Discard sachet.
  7. Add the demi glace to any recipe, sauce, or soup!  Freeze leftovers in an ice cube tray to easily add to recipes in the future.
