This is a meat-free spin on coq au vin, or chicken in wine, a classic French dish in which chicken is braised in a red wine sauce with mushrooms, bacon, onions, and garlic. In this version, spiced potatoes take the place of meat and paprika adds a smoky flavor to replace the bacon, so the dish remains flavorful and comforting. Serve this hearty stew with sliced baguette and rice.

Cooking Time



  • 2 potatoes, peeled and cut into thick wedges
  • 1 carrot, peeled and cut into thick wedges
  • 1 white onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup mushrooms, quartered
  • A few sprigs of fresh thyme or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 3/4 cup red dry wine
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 tablespoon, plus 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Baguette, for serving


  1. Season the potato wedges with salt, pepper, and paprika.
  2. Heat olive oil in a deep pan on medium heat.
  3. Dredge the potato wedges in 1 tablespoon flour and fry until they turn golden on all sides. Use tongs to move them around in the pan to avoid breaking the potatoes.
  4. Remove the potatoes from the pan onto a plate and keep aside.
  5. In the same pan and oil, add onions and garlic and stir to cook until the onions turn pink.
  6. Add carrots and mushrooms and continue to cook for a minute.
  7. Add thyme and some salt and stir. Add 1 teaspoon flour and cook for about 30-45 seconds.
  8. Add the potatoes back and stir until everything is coated well with the flour and thyme.
  9. Add wine and stir. Add the stock and stir until well combined.
  10. Cover and cook on low for about 12-15 minutes. You want the sauce to thicken up and the vegetables to cook through.
  11. Taste to adjust seasoning. Serve over rice or with a french baguette.
