This Vegan Mushroom Stroganoff is:
- super easy to make
- comforting and satisfying
- creamy and flavourful!
Once I’d decided to make a Vegan Mushroom Stroganoff recipe, my biggest uncertainty was how to make a creamy sauce. I didn’t want to use vegan sour cream or vegan cream cheese, so I knew I'd need to make something from scratch.
A drop of vinegar adds a little brightness and brings out a slightly tart flavour reminiscent of sour cream, which is traditionally used in stroganoff.
A little tamari (or soy sauce) adds umami flavour, nutritional yeast adds savouriness, and mustard adds a little piquancy to offset the richness of the creamy sauce.
You can use whatever mushrooms you like - I used a mixture of chestnut and shiitake mushrooms but anything works!
The same goes for pasta - I used brown rice fusilli but any shapes would be fine.
This Vegan Mushroom Stroganoff is super quick and easy to make, but it’s still filling and healthy. For more easy pasta dishes, check out my:
