I really want to make a recipe from the Bay Wolf cookbook but don't eat meat and am having trouble figuring out what to sub for the duck.
The recipe is a lasagna with duck braised in red wine, and also has morels, peas and arugula. I don't eat soy or other fake meat, so I was hoping to find a vegetable substitute. Obviously it won't taste like duck, but I just want something that would go with the rest of the dish.
I first thought tomatoes, but I don't think that would be ideal now that I looked at the recipe again and at the photo in the book. Any ideas? It may be that I just have to skip this recipe but I'm hoping not. Actually maybe it would be okay just leaving the duck out and adding more of the mushrooms?
