Expert Tips

Follow these expert tips to make the best one-pot mushroom stroganoff:

  • Add plenty of mushrooms: Mushrooms reduce quite a bit as they cook. So, be sure to use exactly the amount called for in the recipe card. 
  • Make your own stock: Try making your own veggie stock from kitchen scraps for an even richer taste. 
  • Avoid curdling: Use a high-quality sour cream, and stir it into the pan once it is removed from the heat. Do not let it come to a boil! 
  • Serve over noodles: Spoon the stroganoff sauce over egg noodles instead of mixing them into the pan. Otherwise, they will absorb most of the liquid and become soggy.

Description

This one-pot vegetarian Mushroom Stroganoff is cozy, comforting, and full of rich savory flavor. 


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced shallots, about 1 large
  • 1 lb. fresh mushrooms, thinly sliced (any combination of baby bella, shiitakes, oyster, or white)
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable stock
  • 3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tsp. fresh thyme
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup full-fat sour cream
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh chopped parsley
  • Fresh ground black pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. In a large saute pan, heat olive oil and butter over medium heat. Add shallots and cook until softened, about 2-3 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
  2. Add mushrooms and cook until tender, about 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. In the meantime, whisk together the stock and flour to create a slurry and set aside.
  4. To the pan, stir in garlic and thyme. Cook, stirring constantly, for about a minute or until fragrant.
  5. Add slurry, salt, paprika, Worcestershire sauce, and black pepper, to taste. Reduce heat to a medium-low and simmer 3-5 minutes, uncovered.
  6. Remove off the heat and immediately stir in the sour cream and parsley. Serve over cooked egg noodles.

Notes

  • Avoid curdling: Use a high-quality sour cream, and stir it into the pan once it is removed from the heat. Do not let it come to a boil! Can use plain Greek yogurt or cream cheese. Avoid anything reduced fat.
  • Leftovers: This recipe makes enough sauce for 12 oz. dry egg noodles. If planning on leftovers, it’s best to store the sauce and cooked noodles separately. It will keep for up to 4 days. I do not recommend freezing this dish as the sour cream can separate upon reheating.
