Vegan Mushroom Stroganoff

Vegan Mushroom Stroganoff

This vegan mushroom stroganoff is flavourful, comforting, hearty, very tasty, and perfect as a weeknight dinner, especially in fall and winter! Vegan protein, juicy mushrooms and a creamy vegan sauce –  this belly-warming goodness is exactly what you need during the colder months. 

We LOVE experimenting with classic non-vegan comfort food and giving it our vegan twist, while still keeping all the amazing flavour. This vegan mushroom stroganoff is one of those recipes.

The original dish – beef stroganoff – originates in Russia and contains sautéed pieces of beef served in a sauce with smetana (sour cream). The dish is named after one of the members of the influential Stroganov family. A legend attributes its invention to French chefs working for the family, but several researchers point out that the recipe is a refined version of older Russian dishes.

For our vegan mushroom stroganoff, we have replaced the beef with soya chunks, which provide a lovely texture and depth to the meal. Combined with mushrooms, soya cream and a good pinch of smoked paprika, this recipe is every bit as rich and luscious as it looks, but still ready in under 30 minutes! Whether you have to feed an entire crew or plan a romantic dinner for two, this recipe will be the perfect warming dish.

Is this dish gluten-free? 

Yes, this vegan stroganoff is gluten-free. Just make sure to use a vegan protein source without any additives. And, of course, you’ll need to serve it with gluten-free pasta. 

How to store it?

You can store leftovers in the fridge, where they’ll last for a few days.
