Ingredients

  • 10 ounces pasta of choice
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 pound (16 ounces) cremini mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 teaspoons dijon mustard
  • salt, to taste

Cashew Cream

Instructions

  • Cook the pasta: In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the pasta noodles according to package instructions. Drain well and set aside.
  • Make the Cashew Cream: Bring 3 cups of water to a boil. Pour the hot water over the cashews and let soak for 5 minutes. Drain the cashews and discard the soaking water. Add them to a blender along with the 3/4 cup fresh water and apple cider vinegar. Blend until very smooth. Set aside.
  • In a large pot or pan, add the onions and mushrooms and turn the heat to medium-high. Stir frequently until the mushrooms start to release their moisture, and then cook until the mushrooms are tender and have shrunk in size. You really don't need to add any oil here, but you could start with a tablespoon or two of olive oil if you want. The mushrooms release a ton of oil on their own. Season with a little salt + pepper.
  • Stir in the garlic and cook for 1 more minute, then sprinkle the flour on top and stir it into the vegetables. Gradually pour in the vegetable broth and dijon mustard, stirring. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 4-5 minutes until it thickens slightly.
  • Now add the cashew cream and stir it in. You should have a very creamy mushroom gravy at this point. Stir in the cooked pasta and cook until heated throughout, about 1-2 minutes. Taste, add salt as needed. Sprinkle with parsley, if desired, and serve immediately.

Notes

  1. Gluten free: Use your favorite gluten free pasta and instead of all purpose flour, use brown rice flour or a gluten free flour mix.
  2. May also serve mushroom stroganoff over rice, spaghetti squash or "zoodles". 
  3. If you want to skip slicing mushrooms, buy pre-sliced mushrooms!
  4. Cashew cream substitutions: You could use store bought vegan sour cream, such as Tofutti brand. Use the entire container for the recipe. Or you could substitute a can of full fat coconut milk.
  5. Store leftover mushroom stroganoff in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. You may freeze the sauce separate from the pasta, but it doesn't freeze well once the pasta is added.
  6. Serving suggestions: I like to serve mushroom stroganoff with a side of salad, steamed kale, steamed or roasted broccoli or any other vegetable you like.
