Recipe Difficulty – Very Easy
Why this recipe works
This dairy free and gluten free stroganoff recipe is packed full of flavour. It is a really healthy, hassle free version that can be made with minimal time and effort. Plus, I wanted to create a recipe using plenty of mushrooms as they are currently in season in the UK. Although often given a bad rep, mushrooms are extremely versatile, super flavourful and an ideal meat replacement for vegetarian and vegan dishes! I (personally) love them!
I was inspired to create this recipe as my Mushroom Stroganoff Pasta Bake was so popular! However, I wanted to create another recipe, with a bit more depth and a full body to it, perfect for these Autumnal/Winter nights! Oh and if you LOVE mushrooms and pasta (like me) you have to try my 5 Ingredient Vegan Mushroom Pasta.
Ingredients to make One Pot Vegan Mushroom Stroganoff
- Mushrooms – I’ve used white mushrooms, but this recipe would also work with chestnut mushrooms. The mushrooms really take the texture of this One-Pot Vegan Mushroom Stroganoff to the next level! Got any spare then chuck them into my Black Bean Quesadillas recipe.
- Coconut Milk – adds creaminess to the stroganoff and pairs well with the other flavours. It also adds an extra nutty flavour to the Mushroom Stroganoff without it being too overbearing.
- Lemon – provides the perfect level of acidity and cuts through the coconut milk well
- Onion – I’ve used a red onion to increase flavour, but you could also use a white onion or shallot if preferred.
- Parsley – parsley is a great versatile herb to use. It is fresh, adds some colour and has an earthy taste.
- Dijon Mustard – I’ve added dijon mustard to this recipe to give this Stroganoff recipe the perfect amount of acidity, depth and flavour.
- Paprika – this adds more flavour and depth as well as giving a subtle smokey flavour
- Garlic – Using garlic offers a gentle spice and adds flavour.
See recipe card for full information on ingredients and quantities.
- Mushrooms – I’ve used white mushrooms, but chestnut or oyster mushrooms would also work well.
- Parsley – if you would prefer to use another herb such as coriander instead of parsley, this would also work well with the Vegan Mushroom Stroganoff.
- Dijon Mustard – If you don’t have any dijon mustard in the fridge currently, you could swap this out for another variation of mustard e.g wholegrain mustard. Ideally try and keep the quality of mustard high!
- Deluxe – This recipe is already at its ‘A game’ but if you wanted to make it more deluxe, you could use oyster mushrooms instead of chestnut mushrooms. This will also give it a ‘meatier’ texture. I’d also recommend serving this Mushroom Stroganoff with my Air Fryer Roast Potatoes to really take it to the next level!
- Kid-friendly – I created this recipe for all of the family to enjoy. If you have a child that isn’t that keen on mushrooms, perhaps my Vegan Mac and Cheese recipe would be a good one to try with them.
- Spicy – this recipe is mild and creamy. However to make it spicy, add either add some chilli flakes or you can check out my Spicy Butterbeans on Toast recipe which is another spicy recipe packed full of flavour!
Instructions to make One Pot Vegan Mushroom Stroganoff
Step 1: Firstly, roughly slice the mushrooms, dice the onion and crush the garlic.
Step 2: Heat a large shallow pan with oil, then add in the garlic, onion and mushrooms along with a decent pinch of salt and pepper. Lightly fry for 5 minutes, until the mushrooms have browned and softened.
Hint: Using a shallow pan helps to reduce the sauce down faster.
Step 3: Once the mushrooms are soft, add the coconut milk, dijon mustard, paprika and lemon juice and stir well. Cook on a high heat for 20-25 minutes or until desired consistency. Keep stirring every 5-10 minutes.
Hint: Cooking on a high heat helps the sauce to thicken nicley.
Step 4: Finally, add some freshly chopped parsley and stir it into the stroganoff, leaving some to garnish for serving.
Store any cooled leftovers in an airtight container in your fridge for up to 3 days, or for up to 1 month in a freezer. You could also portion servings out into individual containers for meal-prep ahead of a busy week.
I enjoy serving this stroganoff with brown rice and topped with fresh parsley. However you could also serve this recipe with pasta, mashed potato and even noodles!
Yes, this recipe can be frozen in the freezer for up to 1 month. Ensure the Mushroom Stroganoff is fully defrosted before re-heating.
Yes, any mushrooms will work fine! If you wanted to take this recipe to the next level, oyster mushrooms would give this recipe a deluxe feel!
No, other herbs such as coriander would also work well in this One Pot Vegan Mushroom Stroganoff.
