Stroganoff Sans Mushrooms

I was inspired by Luminous Vegans post on veganizing Beef Stroganoff. D is also a big stroganoff fan, and that’s actually one of the first meals he ever made me (back when we were still eating animals).

However, D doesn’t like mushrooms. So although Veggie Grette’s recipe for mushroom stroganoff looked and sounded delish, I knew it wouldn’t be the right recipe for us.

I scoured the web and came upon this recipe from Lux Hippie for the “Best Vegan Stroganoff Ever.” Well, with a name like that, I had to give it a try.

"beefy" "cheesy" goodness

I didn’t have Seitan on hand, so I substituted with Gimme Lean “beef.” I also used quinoa shells instead of brown rice fusilli, since it’s what I had on hand.

The stroganoff was so quick and easy to make, and super delicious. D approved, and we both happily ate two bowls.

Now, a small warning. Sometimes we forget that we can get food poisoning from greens. I think my kale was bad, because about 30 minutes after dinner, both of us had. . . well, some stomach issues. We don’t normally have reactions to any other ingredient used in the dish, so I definitely think the Kale was the culprit.

So, just be careful and make sure your greens are fresh and well washed before eating. Your tummy will thank you.

  1. Definitely going to try this soon. I really miss stroganoff and the boyfriend isn’t a big mushroom fan…I think this is a meal we could BOTH enjoy, which is tough! Hope you’re feeling better after your food poisoning…that is the WORST. I got really sick once after eating a veggie chipotle burrito bowl and it totally ruined chipotle/mexican/beans for me for months.
