Invite your meat-eating family and friends for a meal guaranteed to impress them! With options including tacos, lasagna, curry, gyros, and more. The following vegan mushroom Stroganoff is a true hit!


Mushroom Stroganoff

  • 12 oz dry tagliatelle (340 g)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lb mixed mushrooms, such as portobello or button mushrooms (450 g)
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup vegetable broth (240 ml)
  • 1 cup coconut milk, canned (240 ml)


  1. Cook pasta according to package instructions. Once al dente, drain and set aside.
  2. Place a large skillet over medium heat and add olive oil. Once warm, add the onion and garlic. Sauté, stirring frequently, until translucent.
  3. Add the mushrooms and cook until they have released most of their liquid and turn brown.
  4. Add the seasonings: smoked paprika, soy sauce, mustard, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine.
  5. Pour in vegetable broth and coconut milk. Place a lid on the skillet and bring the mixture to a simmer. Let it cook for 5-7 minutes or until the sauce has thickened slightly.
  6. Adjust the sauce to your taste preferences, then serve over cooked pasta and garnish with fresh parsley. Enjoy!


  • You can use any plant-based cream instead of coconut milk.
  • Serve with your favorite pasta, such as fettuccine, spaghetti, or fusilli! 
  • A splash of white wine tastes wonderful in the sauce.
