Vegan Mushroom Stroganoff – a.k.a. the ultimate comfort food that just so happens to also be easy, fuss-free, and secretly wholesome. This recipe is perfect for those days when you’d like to just stay bundled up under the covers…but resort to a sweater and fluffy socks instead.
Not only is this meal hearty, filling, and satisfying, but it’s also healthy, gluten-free, AND you only need one pot to make it!
No, not the “cook your pasta first, rinse out the pan, make your sauce, then mix everything together” kind of recipe. You *literally* just dump everything into one pot — pasta and all — let it simmer for a few minutes, and then it’s ready to serve.
INGREDIENTS FOR ONE POT MUSHROOM STROGANOFF
I’ve made this recipe for countless people and it’s always a major hit – vegan or not! You only need 9 simple and healthy ingredients plus 20 minutes to make this recipe. Our key ingredients are:
- Pasta: short egg noodles are traditionally used in mushroom stroganoff, so I opted for some gluten-free rotini for a similar feel! I love how the creamy sauce coats each noodle and hides in all of the crevices. That being said, any variety of gluten-free or gluten-full pasta will work. In general, shorter shapes will work better than longer noodles, which tend to fall apart easily.
- Cremini Mushrooms: these serve as our plant-based “beef” and add heartiness, umami, and a great texture. If you want to make this recipe extra-indulgent, you can add some plant-based beef grounds to the pot as well. I’d recommend sauteéing them first, then adding in the onion and proceeding with the recipe as written.
- Vegan “Beef” Stock: using beef-flavored stock is the key to the most realistic flavor here! Some grocery stores may carry it, but I usually purchase mine online. Vegetable broth will work in a pinch, too.
- Cashew Butter: cashew butter has a creamy texture and subtle sweetness which, when mixed in with our cooked noodles, makes a luscious and hearty cream sauce. Traditional stroganoff is made with sour cream, but I find that the combination of cashew butter with nutritional yeast and a splash of lemon juice makes a great plant-based swap.
BUT HOW DO I COOK STROGANOFF IN ONLY ONE POT?
The secret to this magic is in the water-to-pasta ratio. We’re going to put just the right amount of liquid in with our pasta and veggies so our noodles will cook perfectly, but we’ll still be left with a creamy and luscious sauce. Pretty cool, huh? It also saves on prep time and clean-up.
There’s one final bonus to one-pot pasta: So. Much. FLAVOR! Cooking the pasta in our delicious Stroganoff sauce definitely takes this to a whole other level. Each noodle is infused with umami-packed goodness – all while remaining perfectly cooked.
This One Pot Vegan Mushroom Stroganoff is creamy, cozy and hearty! It’s the perfect crowd-pleasing comfort food and can be served on a busy weeknight or fancy night in. If you want to stretch this meal out a little further, try serving it with some sautéed greens or a side salad. You can also add in some plant-based grounds to make it even heartier – see the recipe notes for that option + more substitutions!
