Ingredients + Variations

In this recipe, onion and mushrooms are softened and simmered with white wine and vegetable broth, then made creamy with vegan sour cream for a delicious main dish everyone will love.

Here is everything you will, including substitution ideas (measurements are in the recipe card below):

  • Mushrooms – use brown, cremini mushrooms for the best flavor, but white will do if in a pinch
  • Onion – a large shallot will also do nicely in place of a yellow onion
  • Garlic – use fresh or powdered
  • Vegan butter – my all time fav is Miyoko’s, you can sub with olive oil or water saute (see notes)
  • Flour – use unbleached all-purpose, whole wheat, or oat
  • White wine – can be omitted and replaced with veg broth
  • Vegetable broth – use a quality brand for best flavor
  • Vegan sour cream – use store bought or make this easy homemade cashew Vegan Sour Cream, you can even sub in coconut milk or cream, or vegan cream
  • Salt + pepper
  • Pasta – any straight or curvy pasta will do, use your favorite or what you have on had like I did (I used this fun and curly trottoli)

How To Make Vegan Mushroom Stroganoff

Take a quick look at the steps and what you can expect when making vegan mushroom stroganoff. Note, the full printable recipe is at the bottom of the post.

  • Saute onion and mushrooms. Using a large pot or dutch oven, saute the onions until tender. Add the mushrooms and cook until they have sweated down, releasing some juices, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the flour. Sprinkle in the flour, stir to mix until all the flour has dissolved in the mushroom juices. Cook for 1 minute.

  • Add the liquids. Carefully pour in the white wine and vegetable broth, and cook for about 5 minutes to let the alcohol evaporate.
  • Add the sour cream. Stir in the vegan sour cream.

  • Add the finishing touch. Sprinkle in the parsley. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

And that’s it! Now you are ready to toss with cooked pasta or spoon it overtop.

So easy. So delicious. Dinner is served!

Top Tips

  • Make it herby. Add in up to 1 teaspoon each of thyme and/or sage.
  • Add umami flavor. If you have vegan worcestershire on hand, add in 2 – 3 teaspoons with the broth for added depth of flavor.
  • Adjust the mushroom amount to taste. I like a lot of mushrooms for heartiness and used almost 2 lbs., feel free to use only 1 lb.
  • Add protein. Toss in 1 cup or so of frozen peas at the end of cooking. Or add them to the pasta, in the last 4 minutes or so, while cooking. Or simply steam separately and toss them in last.
  • Easily adjust for dietary restrictions. See below for how to make vegan mushroom stroganoff oil-free, gluten-free, nut-free and alcohol-free.

How To Store + Reheat

  • Refrigerator: Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 – 6 days, in covered containers.
  • Freezer: Vegan mushroom stroganoff is freezer friendly and can be stored, alone or with pasta mixed, for up to 2 – 3 months in the freezer. To freeze, let cool completely and store in freezer safe multi-use containers (affiliate link) or freezer bags. Let thaw before reheating.
  • Reheat: Reheat on the stovetop using a saucepan, adding a splash of non-dairy milk as needed to thin (or add moisture back in if reheating with pasta). Alternatively, warm individual portions in the microwave using 30 – 60 second intervals, stirring between each, until warmed through.

Serving Suggestions

Mushroom stroganoff is typically served with pasta but is also great served over a bed of Vegan Mashed Potatoes or grain such as Instant Pot Farro. Round out your meal with any of these delicious options:

Adjusting For Dietary Restrictions

You can easily adjust this mushroom stroganoff to suit most dietary needs with a few simple adjustments.

  • Oil-Free – To make mushroom stroganoff oil-free, in place of vegan butter or oil, use a water saute. Use 1/4 cup water or vegetable broth when sauteing the onions and mushrooms, adding more as needed. Skip the flour and use 3/4 cup vegan sour cream.
  • Gluten-Free – Use oat flour, and serve with gluten-free pasta, or on a bed of rice or Mashed Potatoes.
  • Grain-free – Serve over a bed of Mashed Potatoes or Roasted Red Potatoes.
  • Nut-Free – For a nut-free mushroom stroganoff, use 2 – 3 tablespoon tahini or store bought nut-free Tofutti Sour Cream. You can also make a roux, adding 5 tablespoons of flour, instead of 2, to thicken the sauce without adding sour cream.
  • Alcohol-free – Sub the wine with vegetable broth.

  1. Made this for dinner tonight exactly as written & it was SOOOO good! Will definitely be making this again!

  2. Elizabeth says:

    So clever, simple and delicious ; ) Added lots and lots of extra parsley, and doubled the mushrooms. Didn’t use the broth because I’m avoiding Salt. Added a bit more wine instead.

  3. I didn’t have sour cream,
    Wine, or wheat flour, so I used millet flour, hummus for sour cream, and I did not add the wine.
    I also used black soy bean spaghetti; they cook fast so I added it to the stroganoff and it made it a little thicker.
    The flavor is great and I served it with naam and salad.
    Great recipe; it gives you room to use whatever you have in your pantry.
    Thank you, Lydia
