Creamy Vegan Mushroom Stroganoff

This Creamy Vegan Mushroom Stroganoff offers a plant-based twist on a classic comfort food dish. Rich, hearty, and packed with flavor, this stroganoff is perfect for those craving a warm, satisfying meal. The combination of cremini mushrooms, smoked paprika, and thyme creates a savory, umami-rich sauce that perfectly coats the pasta.

Mushrooms are the star of this dish, providing a meaty texture and deep flavor. As they cook, the mushrooms release their moisture and caramelize, enhancing their natural umami. The addition of smoked paprika and thyme adds a layer of smokiness and earthiness, complementing the mushrooms beautifully.

Coconut milk or cashew cream is used to create the creamy base of the sauce, making it rich and luscious without any dairy. Soy sauce and nutritional yeast (if using) further boost the umami flavor, creating a sauce that is both indulgent and wholesome.

Tossing the cooked pasta in this luxurious mushroom sauce ensures that every bite is coated in creamy goodness. Garnished with fresh parsley, this dish not only tastes amazing but looks beautiful too. Whether you're serving it for a family dinner or a special occasion, this vegan mushroom stroganoff is sure to be a hit.

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 cup canned coconut milk or cashew cream
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce or tamari
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast (optional, for extra umami flavor)

    • Pour in the vegetable broth and bring to a simmer.
    • Stir in coconut milk or cashew cream, soy sauce, and nutritional yeast (if using). Simmer for 5-10 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
