Vegan mushroom stroganoff


I thought this dish was FAN-FREAKIN-TASTIC.  I wanted to hoard it all and not share even a bite with Kyle.  But of course I didn’t do that. 

Disclaimer: I have no idea what stroganoff is, so there’s a chance I altered the recipe so much that it’s unrecognizable as a stroganoff.  The addition of the mustard and nooch makes it taste very similar to a creamy dijon chicken recipe my mom used to make, though.  Which I’d forgotten about until I made this.  Mmmm…


Mushroom Stroganoff [vegan, gluten free]


  • 2 tbsp earth balance (or olive oil)
  • 2 8 oz. containers of sliced organic mushrooms
  • 3/4 cup low sodium organic vegetable broth
  • 3 tbsp brown rice vinegar
  • 3 tbsp oat flour
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 3 tbsp plain almond milk
  • 1 tbsp stone ground dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tbsp onion powder
  • salt & pepper (to taste)


Add Earth Balance (or olive oil) to pan, heat until it’s melted, and add mushrooms. 

Place lid on pan and let mushrooms saute (on medium high heat) tossing occasionally until they start to get uniformly soft.

Once they’re bronzed and tender, add vegetable broth and vinegar and cook without lid until liquid is bubbling.

Add the rest of the ingredients (oat flour through onion powder) and cook for another few minutes.  Season with salt & pepper as you want.

Serve over a bed of quinoa or brown rice.  Enjoy!

Clockwise: Stroganoff ingredients, raw mushrooms, cooked mushrooms, with liquid added.


With the rest of the ingredients added.


On it’s way to thickening.

Ready to serve.


Kyle had his over brown rice, while I opted for the last bit of quinoa we had on hand.


After dinner we headed off to see a pre-screening of the new Bond movie, Skyfall.  It was SO good.  Even though it took us an hour to drive the 3 miles to the theatre (grrr…rush hour LA traffic!!!). 

I’ve never had such a good movie streak – Taken 2, Argo, & Skyfall all winners.  We’re due for a dud soon I think.

    Thank you! This looks ah-maz-ing!! Pinning it now!

  2. Caity @ Moi Contre La Vie

    This looks amazing and I don’t even like mushrooms! I think I may try using zucchini instead since I always seem to have half a dozen of them in my fridge at any given time… 🙂

  3. Katie @ Peace Love & Oats

    Haha I think stroganoff has noodles and ground meat? Maybe I’m confusing it. Either way it looks the same and this sounds delicious!

    This looks like such a satisfying dish! I love mushrooms and am glad you finally posted this after teasing us with a pic in a previous post.

    At that rate you could have walked to the theatre! 😉 I recently saw Skyfall too and enjoyed it so much. I found it funny that the woman’s name was my boyfriend’s + an e…Severine lol.

    Skyfall is great! I went to see Argo last night and thought it was brilliant, I was right on the edge of my seat throughout. Probably my favourite film this year!

    so cool!!

  8. Alexis @ Hummusapien

    I NEED to see Taken 2! This mushroom stroganoff looks awesome–I just got mushrooms from TJ’s so I’ll totally be making this!

    This looks so good! I have a mushroom stroganoff recipe, I haven’t cooked it for ages, but I really want to now.

  10. elaine c.

    i love mushrooms and this looks SO good and comforting!

  11. Brigid

    What a coincidence! I am making mushroom stroganoff tonight, using Spabettie’s recipe ( We also saw “Skyfall.” I liked it, but most action films are just a little lost on me.

  12. ethel

    that looks divine! but when else can i use brown rice vinegar? is it completely different to rice wine vinegar? or the asian white vinegar that’s typically in the sale household?

  13. Elise (Post author)

    either rice wine or white wine vinegar will totally work.

    great minds…

    K, just thought you should know, I made it half way through making this recipe and realized my almond breeze was unsweetened vanilla. I was so desperate to eat this dish that I threw caution to the wind and used it. It worked fine–just proves their is nothing that AB unsweetened vanilla can’t do!

  16. Elise (Post author)

    haha…i could see doing the same thing myself. glad it worked out!

  17. Hilary

    Just made this for lunch and it was AMAZING!

  18. Brenda

    OMG this looks so good. I’m absolutely making this soon. My mouth is literally watering.

  19. Sarah

    This dish was AMAZING!! My hubby is a very picky eater and normally hates stroganoff (in its original form) but he devoured this. I did use pasta instead of rice, just because pasta is usually better received by my kiddos. Sooo good!

    I finally got around to making this, and I had to report back. It is so delish. Total bonus that it was super quick and I already had everything except the mushrooms. This is going in my regular menu rotation for sure. Thank you!!

  22. Samantha

    I thought mushrooms were a FODMAP no-no, so as a recent low FODMAPper I’d been steering clear of them. Was I wrong, or did you just find that you could tolerate them? This dish looks fabulous and I liked the suggestion from one of your commenters of substituting zucchini. So glad I found your site!

  27. Elise (Post author)

    hi amy! yes, mushrooms are a fodmap – in the polyol category. if youre sensitive to polyols id recommend eating a very reduced serving (probably not easy to do w this recipe) or swapping for another veg. i tolerate poyols the best of all the groups so i tend to push my limits w them a bit more than i probably should. especially w avocado!

    Hey! I love stroganoff, but I found out last year I’m allergic to milk… I’m not good at moderation, either, and figured I could “cheat” every now and then… turns out I *can’t* do that without consequences… so I am so glad I found this! I’m trying it ASAP! 🙂

  29. Vikki McIntyre

    Hi, this looks great! What other flours can I use instead of oat?

  30. Elena

    This is my FAVORITE recipe! I’ve made it several times and I’m always amazed at how good it is. Thank you so much, Elise!
