Vegetarian Mushroom Stroganoff in pan

My recipe for traditional Beef Stroganoff has long been one of the most popular posts on this blog. And with good reason — it’s one of my faves. But as more and more of us are eating less meat nowadays, I’ve been receiving more and more questions about whether it’s possible to make this classic comfort food sans-beef. My answer?

Totally do-able.

Also? Totally delicious.

Turns out that mushrooms — with all of their hearty, savory, umami-y goodness — carry this dish perfectly fine on their own. They also have the added benefit of being significantly more healthy and less expensive than traditional beef. And when paired with tender egg noodles and a savory stroganoff sauce, this dish tastes just like the nostalgic comfort food we all know and love.

Let’s make some vegetarian stroganoff!

Vegetarian Mushroom Stroganoff with Egg Noodles

More good news? This recipe is incredibly simple to make, and can be on the table in just about 30 minutes.

To begin, bring a pot of water to a boil for your noodles. (You can use egg noodles, traditional pasta, quinoa…you name it.)  And while that’s heating up, get to choppin’.

You’ll need a full pound of mushrooms for this recipe. But the type is up to you! I just kept mine simple and used a bunch of baby bellas (a.k.a. cremini mushrooms), since they were the only ones available at our neighborhood market by us this week. But white button mushrooms would also work. Or — even better — grab a mix at the store for even more delicious mushroom flavors. (That’s totally happening here the next time I make this.)

Once you have all of your ingredients prepped and chopped, sauté them all together in a large sauté pan or stockpot. Then once it’s time to add the veggie stock mixture (see below), add your noodles to the boiling water, and the timing should work out well for everything to be ready to go in the end.

Once the sauce and noodles are ready to go, you can either plate up your noodles and serve the sauce on top…

…or, combine the noodles and sauce altogether in the pan, and then serve. Big choices here, folks.

Then, just sprinkle on your favorite toppings (I’m a big fan of freshly-grated Parm, a sprinkle of chopped fresh parsley or thyme, and extra black pepper)…

Vegetarian Mushroom Stroganoff Recipe

Mushroom Stroganoff (Vegetarian)

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4 -6 servings 1x

Description

This vegetarian Mushroom Stroganoff recipe is quick and easy to make in about 30 minutes, and it is perfectly comforting, hearty, savory, and delicious.  Feel free to serve over egg noodles, traditional pasta, quinoa, veggies, or whatever sounds delicious.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 pound wide egg noodles
  • 3 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 small white onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound baby bella mushrooms*
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1.5 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce (here is a vegetarian brand)
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons flour
  • 3 small sprigs of fresh thyme (or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme)
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt or light sour cream
  • Kosher salt and freshly-cracked black pepper
  • optional toppings: freshly-grated Parmesan cheese, chopped fresh parsley, extra black pepper

Instructions

  1. Cook egg noodles al dente in boiling, generously-salted water according to package instructions. (For optimal timing, I recommend actually adding the egg noodles to the boiling water at the same time that the vegetable stock is added to the stroganoff.)
  2. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat.  Add onions and sauté for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons butter, garlic and mushrooms, and stir to combine. Continue sautéing for an additional 5-7 minutes, until the mushrooms are cooked and tender. Add the white wine, and deglaze the pan by using a wooden spoon to scrape the brown bits off the bottom of the pan. Let the sauce simmer for 3 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, whisk together the vegetable stock, Worcestershire and flour until smooth. Pour the vegetable stock mixture into the pan, along with the thyme, and stir to combine. Let the mixture simmer for an additional 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened. Then, stir in the Greek yogurt (or sour cream) evenly into the sauce. Taste, and season with a generous pinch of two of salt and pepper as needed.
  4. Serve immediately over the egg noodles, garnished with your desired toppings.

Notes

*Feel free to use whatever mushrooms you have available.  A mixture of your faves would be great!

  1. Absolutely delicious!! I used Pamelas gluten-free flour and found it a bit thicker than it should be. No matter, I just splashed in a bit more vegetable broth. I’ve made it with both sour cream and plain Greek yogurt – both equally wonderful. My hubs told me, “Make this a lot!”. Thank you for developing this recipe!

  2. Sooooo good! I combined 1/2 mushrooms and 1/2 fake beef crumbles and it was delicious! My husband and I finished the entire meal in one sitting! Thank you for this perfect recipe.

  3. Great recipe. I’m vegan and substituted soy milk for the sour cream – no issue it was still thick and creamy. You can also use vegetable-based pasta but you really need to cook it to get it as soft as egg noodles. To add some color throw in roasted red peppers and baby spinach. Main comment is that there wasn’t enough sauce, I’d make twice as much for a pound of noodles.

  4. I’ve made a few versions of this but the addition of Worcestershire adds the bang that surpasses all others! I roasted crimini mushrooms with salt-free steak spice for a chewier texture but otherwise made no modifications and it turned out brilliantly. Kudos for a real keeper!!

  5. Omg! This is so good!!! And so easy! Thanks so much

  6. What is the nutritional information please
