Tips to make this recipe

  • Wash, dry, and slice the mushrooms just before you plan to use them. If you wash the mushrooms too long in advance, they can become slimy.
  • Cooking time varies from stove to stove, so keep a close eye on the mushrooms to make sure you don’t overcook them.
  • Add a little bit of the water to the cornstarch, and create a smooth paste. Once all the cornstarch is mixed, add all the water and keep mixing. This will prevent lumps from forming in the sauce.

Serve this Vegan Mushroom Stroganoff with pasta or rice and a green salad on the side. To pack in more plant-based goodness, you can replace normal pasta with spiralized veggies like zucchini or use cauliflower rice instead of normal rice.

If you have a gluten intolerance, swap the wheat pasta for a gluten-free pasta of your choice. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator.
