Recipe:Mushroom Stroganoff with Herbed Pasta

If you are looking for an easy and elegant supper entree that everyone (meat-eaters too!) will love, you may want to give this veggie version of classic stroganoff a try. Quick, delicious and added bonus: NO oven time…..great during these hot and hazy days of summer.

This recipe has been a favorite from my cookbook, Not Just for Vegetarians with many of my readers and followers. Hope you will enjoy it too.😊    

 Mushroom Stroganoff with Herbed Pasta

Make this elegant redo of beef stroganoff in no time at all. Serve with baby carrots or peas for a brilliant color contrast. Serves 4.

2 T. butter or good-quality margarine (Earth Balance works great)

1 large (preferably sweet) onion, finely diced

5 C. small whole mushrooms (or equivalent amount of large sliced mushrooms)

2 T. unbleached white flour

¾ C. vegetable soup stock

3 T. light, regular or vegan sour cream

¼-1/2 teas. freshly-ground  black pepper, to taste

1/2- 1 teas. sea salt (opt.)

Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onions and sauté for 5 minutes. Add mushrooms, cover and reduce heat to low and steam for 5 minutes. Add flour and stir to coat the mushrooms and onions. Add stock and simmer, covered over low heat for 10 more minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, stir in the sour cream, salt and  pepper and serve immediately.

Excellent with Herbed Pasta (see recipe below) or rice. 


200 grams broad (flat) noodles

2 T. butter or good-quality margarine

2 T. chopped fresh or 2 teas.dried parsley

1 T. chopped fresh or 1 teas.dried basil or Italian herb blend

1 teas. Mrs. Dash Original Blend or Spike Seasoning Blend

  1. Did someone say MUSHROOMS?

    And no oven time?

    I’m in!!!

    By the way, JUST got the package at work tonight… will open it and get back to you thru e-mail over the weekend or earlier. Thanks, G.

  2. OK, this is going to ruin my image so you can’t tell anyone…but I loooove peas. Especially really fresh ones from the garden steamed with just a bit of butter. Or dripping in butter. I like butter too. That picture has made me so very hungry!!!!!

  3. Ah, gee…now I’m hungry again and it’s WAY too late at night to be eating…
    Thank you, I’ll try this!

  4. This looks wonderful! I love mushrooms, and the timing is perfect…I have a vegetarian friend coming for meditation and pot-luck supper tomorrow. Now I know what to cook…Thanks!!

  5. That looks wonderful! The peas look so green! I love it! 🙂

  6. Hi Karen, I LOVE mushrooms too, we make this recipe a lot…Joe likes making this one too, quick and easy and always good. And NO OVEN TIME!Glad to hear that Canada Post did not let me down again…LOL

    Hi Sheep, Sounds like you are swaying just a wee bit off the pizza path. You could make this dish in the time that you are waiting for a pizza to arrive. And LOTS of buttery BABY peas on the side, the baby part, thats important, at least to me….Yummmmm…..

    Hi Sadie, Let me know how the cooking goes. Are you still transitioning to more vegetarian? Does the Meezer like peas? Ive had kitties that REALLY liked them, the Mitz says, yeah, whatever, give me some soy milk ( her latest kick) the vet says its a-ok, especially for an O-L-D female cat…whoops, the Mitz is back, gotta go!!!! Yikes the OLD word, NOT!!!!

    Hi Michelle, Let me know how you and your friend like the recipe. Just stopped by your blog and added you to my blogroll. 🙂

    Hi Opal, I am in love with my Nikon digital camera, the photos turn out great (at least most of the time) when they don’t, its NOT the cameras fault LOL…

    Happy (cool) cooking and BFN, Geraldine

  7. What an appetizing and appealing photo – and two yummy veggies (mushrooms & peas) in one recipe. Thank you for sharing.

  8. I looove stroganoff, and that looks scrumptious. I’ve actually made a couple of different vegan mushroom stroganoffs. So simple and so good.

  9. This is my favorite recipe from NJFV (although there are a lot of good ones). I’ve made it several times–very quick and yummy. It reminds me of my mom’s comfort food, just without the meat 🙂

  10. Now G., you KNOW that I hate ‘shrooms. But this looks really yummy even so! How can that be possible? You MUST be good.

  11. Hi Mary Anne, These are two of my fav. veggies too. Actually there aren’t too many vegetables that I DON’T like, parsnips that’s about it and maybe I could learn to like them too. 🙂

    Hi Tara, Thanks for the compliment and for visiting Veggies (first time I think?).

    Hi Lanae, I know you mentioned that you like this recipe and have made it a few times already. Nice to hear it reminds you of home-cooking with your mom. Meat, who needs it, right!!!

    Huggs and BFN, G

  12. Hi C, I guess we were typing at exactly the same time!

    How can anyone hate mushrooms??? If you do, this might be a recipe to change your mind.

    I kinda like this photo myself, not as ‘fancy’ as the photos in the book but my digital fun continues….

    Bye again, G

  13. When I was a kid stroganoff was my favorite. Sounds so good right now


  14. This looks sooo good! I love petite peas… Stroganoff is such a comfort food for me.. I love it!

  15. Hi Geraldine,

    The dinner was a hit! We all loved the Mushroom Stroganoff….it was wonderful.

    Moments before dinner I discovered I was out of parsley, though, so used celery seed with the dried basil on the noodles and it turned out to be ok.

    Thanks for a good recipe! I will surely be making this dish again! 🙂

  16. I have made this delicious recipe several times before,it’s fast,fun and easy to make and always good.

  17. Mmmmm mushrooms are my fav food…gonna make this soon…




  18. Wow, that’s amazing Al…I was JUST gonna send you an email…stay tuned!!!

    Yes, this is VERY yummy indeed, especially if you love mushrooms ( I really, really do, all kinds).
    Let me know how it goes.

    Ive already stopped by CH, after Corrie St. ended of course. We are about 6 months behind here so I never check in on their site, it ruins the next episode LOL.

    Huggs, G

  19. Looks very good – I’ll have to try it 🙂
