Mushroom Stroganoff Recipe! #meatlessmonday


In our continuing effort to get healthier, I am doing a lot of meatless dishes recently. I say meatless because there are times when even a recipe that is vegetarian isn't because I use chicken broth. This is one of those. We love Beef Stroganoff so I thought I could make a meatless version using Portobello mushrooms. Portobellos are great because they are thick and "meaty" and, if cooked correctly, they can be a great substitute for meat. I even make Portabello mushroom burgers and we do not miss the meat. This recipe was super delish. 




Ingredients needed: 2 cups of noodles, a pack mushroom, one shallot, 3 cloves of garlic, fresh thyme and rosemary, 1/2 cup white wine and olive oil and a cup of vegetable, chicken or beef broth.  



Start out by mincing the shallot and 3 cloves of garlic and sauteing them until soft. 



Cut the Portabello mushrooms into halves or quarters and add to the garlic and shallot. 



When the mushrooms are nicely caramelized, add the 1/2 cup of wine and reduce. Also add the fresh herbs.



Start the noodles. 



Add the cup of broth. If you want a vegetarian meal, use vegetable broth. I used chicken broth. If you really want a deeper flavor, then use beef broth.  You can use more broth depending on how much sauce you want. 



After the broth is added and warmed, take the pan off the fire and add a cup of sour cream. If you want to make this vegetarian, you can try and find vegetarian sour cream. I like the real stuff.  Mix the sour cream into the mushroom sauce. Add the noodle to the pan and mix well. Viola, it's done. 



This is a super easy dish. I was surprised how yummy it tasted and we did not miss the meat at all!!

Buen Provecho!

  4. I like how you added the garlic, rosemary and thyme! It should make for a lot of flavor as the mushrooms will absorb the flavors while cooking in the stew of broth and wine! I'll have to remember about adding the sour cream. It's a good alternative to the usual flour to thicken the broth!

  5. Meat is such an over-rated food. I eat little meat. I have meat maybe once a week.
