Servings: 2 people


  • Oven safe plate (I used my dutch oven to make them!)


  • 1 pack quenelles Nature (you can find them with fish, or poultry but they won't be vegetarian)
  • 2-3 cups mushrooms sliced
  • 1 onion Diced
  • 4-5 garlic cloves Minced
  • 2 cups tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 1 tbsp thyme
  • 1 tbsp rosemary
  • 1 tbsp parsley
  • Salt & pepper to your taste
  • Olive oil


  • Add some olive oil to your pan or oven safe pan if you have one. I cook everything in my le creuset since it's oven safe. If you don't have any oven safe pot, then cook the veggies in a pot then put everything in your oven safe tray.
  • Pre-heat the oven at 210ÂșC.
  • When the olive oil is hot, add the onion & garlic. Cook for a couple of minutes.
  • Add the mushrooms, herbs, salt & pepper and cook for 6-8 minutes.
  • Add the tomato sauce and cook for 3-4 minutes more.
  • Add the quenelles on top of the sauce, leaving some space between them.
  • Add the cream on top and if you want more tomato sauce. Add some grated cheese if you want.
  • Cook for 35 minutes or until the quenelles have puffed.
  • Add the parsley on top and enjoy! Two quenelles per person is the serving I usually go for.
