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.

Vegetarian Mushroom Stroganoff Sauce

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)…

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.


  • 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


  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.


*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!

    • This was good! I added Dijon mustard and made it a one pot dish by adding the noodles in when I added the broth, wine, etc.

  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

  7. This is awesome, I make it vegan by subbing the paste, the vegan yogurt and the vegan Worcestershire

  8. Great recipe, and seems pretty adaptable based on my first go with it. I used some killer chicken stock I had on hand (which allowed for less flour) and deglazed with some brandy. I also reserved some of the pasta cooking water, adding about 1 TBSP per serving to help bind it all together. So yummy!! I will make this a couple times per month, thank you.

  9. This was DELICIOUS! I am on a gluten free low sodium diet. Used dill instead of thyme. Didnt have any white wine left used a little balsamic vinegar instead. Unsalted butter. Unsalted broth. The dill, balsamic and parmesan/romano cheese and small amt low sodium worchester added all the flavoring I needed found gluten free papparedelle noodles.Added corn starch to the broth for a sllurry. No flour AMAZING-Thank you!!

  10. Really tasty. I didn’t have an open bottle of wine, so I used 2 c broth with a squeeze of lemon and it was great.

  11. Fabulous recipe! I used it to take the place of my husband’s favorite birthday recipe his mom used to make with cream of mushroom soup (I wanted something I could keep semi-vegan and that would stand without the massive quantities of beef she used to include).

    The ratio of mushrooms kept any of us from noticing the loss of beef, the flavors were fantastic, and it was so easy to make. Even if you don’t generally use sour cream or yogurt (I had considered leaving it out), it takes the Worchestershire from being too sweet/tangy to umami.

    I made a double batch and sent some home with our kids – we will be happily reheating and eating for a couple of days. Thanks!

  12. Can you convert the ingredients scale in millilitres and grams?

  13. so easy to make and the taste is excellent. had this with gluten free pasta and used sour cream. will be making again to freeze as a quick and easy healthy option when time is short.

  14. Made this last night and it was delicious! I agree with a reviewer that the stroganoff to noodle ration is off. We use 1/2 the noodles and will double the batch next time. Otherwise, will make it again. It’s such a great hearty vegetarian option.

  15. This was excellent!! Perfect for meatless Monday – husband had no complaints!! A lot of flavor and the onions were a nice addition being sliced. Will become part of the rotation!!

  16. This looks amazing. Do you think these ingredients could be used for a crockpot recipe?

  17. Delicious! I added some gardein meatless beef tips. I also tempered the sour cream with some pasta water and it worked perfectly. Added some nutritional yeast in to the veggie stock as well. This is my new go-to stroganoff base!

  18. Best mushroom stroganoff recipe — and I’ve tried several. I used dry sherry because that’s what I have on hand and it’s great, deepening the umami.

    I cooked 8 ounces of noodles and that was too many noodles for the amount of sauce. Next time I’ll cook 4-6 ounces of noodles to serve with this amount of sauce.

  19. SOOOOOOO GOOD make it right now! I need to buy more mushrooms and make it again. I boiled a whole bag of egg noodles for this and ate the whole thing in 3 days. The vinegar and greek yogurt made this recipe deliciously funky and tangy.

  20. This was absolutely amazing! I followed the recipe exactly. This will be a house regular.

  21. I did “veganize” this and it was delicious! I subbed potato gnocchi for the egg noodles and used vegan butter, sour cream, parm, and Worcestershire. No animal products at all. It was simple and delicious! Thank you for the inspiration!

  22. This was so delicious! I used thick sliced white mushrooms and beef broth because it’s what I had. I’m not a vegetarian so no issues with that but, frankly, I’ll probably never make this dish with beef again. I didn’t feel like there was enough sauce for a full pound of noodles so I did half. I’d probably double up at least on the saucey parts next time. I topped with a little horseradish sour cream. Thanks for the great recipe definitely a keeper.

  23. It left a sour taste and I don’t know why. Any ideas?

  24. How does one stroganoff recipe taste so much better than all the others I’ve tried? I don’t know, but here we are! Instead of wine and veg broth I made up 2 cups of broth using a beef bouillon cube (since I’m not vegetarian, I just really like mushrooms). I poured 1/2 cup in to deglaze the pan, and combined the remaining with the flour and Worcestershire sauce. Otherwise I made it as per the recipe, and have been thoroughly enjoying it over penne. Thanks!

  25. This was simple and delicious! 100% will be making again!

  26. Was worth trying. Printed the recipe and will make it again.

  27. Excellent, thank you! Everyone who tries it wants the recipe, and there is no greater compliment than that.

  28. This is very good. I used vegan sour cream and Parmesan cheese from Follow Your Heart company.
    Thank you for this recipe.

  29. This recipe is so good that my meat-eating Greek boyfriend even fell in love with it! Thank you so much for sharing!

  30. This is soooooo yummy and addictive. I almost followed the recipe to a tee. I added a packet of dried mixed wild mushrooms – soaked in hot water for 10 min, chopped up and added to half cooked mushrooms and a large splash of the soaking water, let it all cook and liquid evaporate, then continued with recipe. This is going into my rotation!!

  31. This is amazing!!! I made it exactly as written. At the end I did need a fair amount of S&P. I made it a day ahead of time and waited to cook the noodles and add the sour cream until the next day when I served it to friends and family. Yum, yum, yum!!!

  32. I made this recipe and it was so ridiculously delicious! I am not a vegetarian and my husband is absolutely a carnivore and we both loved it. I made one change though, three and a half Tablespoons of flour sounded very high to me, I used a one heaping Tablespoon and it worked just fine…

  33. This recipe was perfection as is. Loved the white wine addition, it really made it extra! I used Portobello mushrooms as they are extra “meaty” mushrooms. Will definitely make this again!

  34. What can I use to replace the white wine? I can’t have alcohol.

  35. Great recipe and so easy to have as is or jazz it up with other stuff you like!
    Thank you!

  36. Soooo good!!

  37. Delicious, quick, easy, versatile, and ingredients in house. I used vodka not wine. The sauce can be served over rice, or used as a gravy. A big hit with hubby. Thanks for sharing.

  38. Didn’t have the vegetarian worcestershire so I used 1T soy and 1t balsamic to get the tang and it was PERFECT! This recipe is awesome.

  39. So delicious and easy

  40. This is definitely a perfect meal for a family who loves pasta dishes..i personal will cook this for my family soon… Thanks for sharing..😁

  41. Loved this recipe! I followed it as written – something I always do when trying a new recipe – and I would not change a thing!!! It was easy to make and so satisfying. Maybe next time I’ll try it with shiitakes, which sell for a good price at Costco. Thank you, Ali! I look forward to trying more of your creations!
