Warming comfort and joy in a cup! Choose a bottle of dark, fruity red wine that you'd drink as-is: the quality of the mulled wine depends on the quality of the wine. A moderately-priced, good quality wine will do just fine.
Looking for a vegan dish worthy of Thanksgiving? This lush stew with its rich textures and umami Bourguignon-style sauce ticks all the boxes. For the best flavor, use as many kinds of mushrooms as you can get, and let them caramelize when searing. This adds a lot of depth to the sauce. Maitake mushrooms give this a brisket-like texture, in a very good way.
