Here’s a vegetarian twist on a classic, upscale Continental dish (which normally includes filet mignon, pâté, and truffles); but this version is inexpensive, easy (if somewhat time-consuming) to prepare, and meat-free. Rich red wine, earthy mushrooms, creamy herb-flecked goat cheese, sweet roasted beets, and flaky buttery crust meld in a harmonious, luxurious whole ideal for holidays and even weeknights. A velvety Pinot Noir sauce tops it off (though if you’re time-pressed, the dish is delicious without it).
