Vegan MoFo 2015 - Day 9

"Most Retro Recipe"

I googled retro recipes, I didn't have a clue! haha.  One of the first ones I saw was mushroom stroganoff and I knew that I had to make that, because I love it. When I was veggie, if I saw it on a menu, I'd order it.

It's really easy to make and also, it's really easy to make vegan, by swapping out the sour cream for plain soya yogurt.

350-400g mushrooms of your choice (I used a mix of chestnut and regular white because that's all I could find in the crap local supermarket!)
1 medium onion, sliced
1 or 2 cloves of garlic
1.5 - 2 tsps paprika
1 tbsp vegan worcestershire sauce
125ml/0.5 cup veggie stock
125ml/0.5 cup plain, unsweetened soya yogurt
Tbsp or so of fresh parsley, minced.
Salt & pepper to taste

I sauteed the mushrooms in batches, in a little bit of olive oil, as my pan wasn't big enough to get them all in a flat layer. Once they were browned on both sides, I tipped them out of the pan onto a plate and then added a bit more oil and sauteed the onion for a few minutes. Then add the garlic and paprika and stir round for a minute or so then add the worcestershire sauce and stock.

Let it bubble for a few minutes and reduce a bit. When you're happy with the thickness of the sauce, turn it way down and add the yogurt and parsley. Stir through and let it cook a minute or so to heat through, then serve.

I served it with a pack of white/wild rice.



  1. I love mushroom stroganoff too but for some reason I've never got round to veganising it. Thank you for the inspiration.

  2. Yuuuum! I love mushroom stroganoff, I think I've only ever eaten it once but I wanna eat it again now!

  3. I love stroganoff, it has been one of my family's go-to vegetarian recipe for the past decade or so.

  4. I thought this was a tough one, too, but I think you did a great job with it!!!! Nice!

  5. Mushroom stroganoff is awesome & yours looks great! I've only had it with pasta before, so serving it with rice is something I'll have to try. :)

  6. One cannot go wrong with mushroom stroganoff! :-)

  7. I love stroganoff! So yummy.
