This is a rich and meaty vegetarian stroganoff made with portobello mushrooms, and served over egg noodles. It is quick to make, and tastes delicious.

Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add egg noodles, and cook until al dente, about 7 minutes. Remove from heat, drain, and set aside.

  • At the same time, melt butter in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Add onion, and cook, stirring until softened. Turn the heat up to medium-high, and add sliced mushrooms. Cook until the mushrooms are limp and browned. Remove to a bowl, and set aside.

  • In the same skillet, stir in vegetable broth, being sure to stir in any browned bits off the bottom of the pan. Bring to a boil, and cook until the mixture has reduced by 1/3. Reduce heat to low, and return the mushrooms and onion to the skillet.

  • Remove the pan from the heat, stir together the sour cream and flour; then blend into the mushrooms. Return the skillet to the burner, and continue cooking over low heat, just until the sauce thickens. Stir in the parsley, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve over cooked egg noodles.

Good thing I read the reviews! As written this recipe would have easily been a 2. With the review recommendations its a 5+++! Here's what I did to make it taste great: 1. slowly cooked the onions so they became caramelized (took at least 25 mins on very low heat), 2. add a mixture of portobello, crimini and shitake mushrooms, 3. added 3 cloves of garlic when sautéed the mushrooms, 4. added half a cup of wine after mushrooms were soft and cooked for about three mins, and then added 1 cup of stock, 1/2 tsbp of soy, 4 dashes of Worcestershire sauce, 5. added about half a cup of sour creme and 1/4 chopped fresh parsley. Awesome with modifications! Read More

As written, this recipe would warrant a 2-star rating. But with some changes, it could well be 5-star! As others, I also added crushed garlic (1 large clove), and a few dashes each of soy and worcestershire sauce. Without these flavor enhancers, the recipe would be quite flat. I also reduced the sour cream to 1/2 cup; fearing that 1 1/2 cups would be way overkill. 1/2 cup was perfect, and I used the lite version with success. Once the sour cream and flour mixture was added to the mushroom and broth mixture, I cooked everything on med/low heat for about a minute to cook the flour a bit (raw flour is not a good thing). For further improvement next time, I'd add a few teaspoons of tomato paste to ramp up the flavor and richness of the dish (tomato paste is sometimes found in beef stroganoff recipes). Also, unless you're a strict vegetarian, I would recommend using beef broth in place of the vegetable broth. Lastly, I would reconstitute a few dried mushrooms (ex: dried porcinis) and add them into the mix. This would pump up the 'mushroomy-ness' of the dish. For texture variety, you could also add in some other types of fresh mushrooms (button, oyster, etc.) Lastly, don't cook your noodles before starting to prepare the stroganoff. They will get cold and sticky by the time you're ready to use them. Instead, cook 'em at the last minute. Once served up on your dinner plate, add a dollop of sour cream to the top of the stroganoff. Yum! Read More

My rating is for the version that I made. I cut the sour cream to a little over half a cup then cut the flour to about 2.5 Tbsp. I cooked the onion and mushrooms with one minced garlic clove. When the mushrooms and sour cream mixture were on low on the stove I added: 1 tsp soy sauce 1/2 tsp worchestershire sauce and a dash of white wine. I used a lot less parsley - just threw some in and then decided it looked good. The recipe was really tasty. I loved it - finally I've found a vegetarian equivalent to my Mom's beef recipe! My 17-year-old cousin said that she isn't usually a huge fan of vegetarian dishes but she really loved this one. I'll definitely make it again! Great for company although I'd definitely double the recipe because it was not a lot. Read More

I have never had stroganoff before so I have nothing to compare this to but I thought it was delicious and sooo easy. I made some substitutions to make this recipe dairy-free: vegan margarine and Tofutti Sour Supreme. I didn't have all-purpose flour so I used whole wheat which was awesome surprisingly not grainy at all. I added a dash of soy sauce as others recommended and I served it atop rice instead of egg noodles. I'm looking forward to making this again! I would like to comment that substituting beef broth for vegetable broth seems to negate the purpose of a mushroom stroganoff recipe. Read More

I have made this twice now-it's awesome! I don't remove the mushrooms from the pan-I just add the broth in with them and boil to get really great mushroom flavor in the sauce. This has become a favorite! Read More

Quite tasty I must say. Like others I added a dash of Worchestshire sauce and lite Soy sauce...plus a splash of white wine. About a tablespoon of garlic helped as well. I used a mix of Portobello Shitake and Oyster mushrooms and about 3/4 cup of Fat Free sour cream (mixed with about 2 Tbsp whole wheat flour). Mixed some red onion with Walla Walla sweet onion. I put this over whole wheat rotini with good results. The second time I followed my own suggestions:-)using used homemade chicken stock (needed to get it out of the freezer) and whole wheat fettuccine. This time I used Light sour cream and mixed onion with diced shallots. Once again it was really good. BTW consider on your time constraints...I like cooking the pasta of any dish late in the cooking process. Seems it mixes w/ sauces etc better when it's hot out of the colander. It wants to keep cooking when put in a hot sauce...so keep that in mind under cook it by a minute. If sauce is coming out of the fridge...feel free to cool the pasta by adding it to the cool sauce (cook pasta for full length of recommended time in this case. Read More

I originally found this recipe on a package of portabello mushrooms and have prepared it several times. We love it! Read More

I took some of the other reviewers' advice and cut the sour cream (I used oat cream to make it vegan) to 1 cup. I also subbed some of the broth for red wine. As written the recipe would probably lack oomph but with a few tweakings it's great served on whole wheat pasta! Read More

Just an FYI while adding worcestershire may add flavor to this dish it makes the recipe non-vegetarian. There are veg. worchestershire options out there but you have to look for them. Read More
