If you have Meatless Mondays on your weekly menu, I have just the recipe for you to try: Easy Mushroom Stroganoff. It’s a vegetarian version of a classic: beef stroganoff. In place of the meat, we are using mushrooms. Still flavorful, still delicious but lighter in calories and healthier. You can make it vegan by using almond milk for the creamy sauce and vegan noodles. This Easy Mushroom Stroganoff can be done on your table in under 20 minutes. It’s quick, easy and perfect for busy weeknights when you want something delicious but healthy.
- olive oil
- fresh thyme
- Worcestershire sauce
- salt and pepper
- vegetable stock
- milk (any kind, even almond)
- wide noodles
Thanks to the flavorful mushrooms, you will not miss the beef in this stroganoff. Mushrooms add the umami flavor to a dish and here they are the perfect substitute for the meat.
- Simply saute garlic, onions and mushrooms together.
- Add vegetable stock and thicken with milk and cornstarch slurry.
- Stir in cooked noodles and serve garnished with parsley.
The whole dish can be done under 20 minutes. It’s quick, easy and flavorful.
You can customize this dish to your preferences. I like to add spinach at the end of cooking, just before I stir in the noodles. You can use more mushrooms if you are a big fan. I think 8 oz. of white mushrooms is plenty to make a delicious sauce. Add sour cream to truly mimic the classic beef stroganoff or skip it to keep it vegan. Garnish with grated Parmesan or sprinkle with nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavor.
