Who would want to make beef stroganoff when you can use mushrooms? This creamy dish is 100% free from dairy, eggs, and meat, and guess what, it tastes incredible. It packs a delicious savory flavor and is the perfect comfort food. But who doesn’t love a big bowl of pasta?

What is Mushroom Stroganoff?

Stroganov is a famous Russian dish traditionally made with beef, butter, garlic, and onions, combined with sour cream. You serve it with pilaf rice, noodles, or even mashed potatoes. The dish we know today as stroganoff was named after a famous Russian family by a French chef working for them. Since we are making this dish vegan today, we are swapping beef for mushrooms and using dairy-free butter and vegan sour cream to bring the dish to life.

Here’s What You Need For this Vegan Mushroom Stroganoff:


  • Garlic & Onion – For this recipe, we use a yellow onion and a whole heck of a lot of garlic (6 cloves). Not only does this add the perfect base flavor, but onions and garlic are loaded with vitamins and minerals.
  • Mushrooms – What would mushroom stroganoff be without mushrooms? We use baby bella mushrooms for this vegan mushroom stroganoff, but you can other mushrooms like shiitake or white cap, portabello, or a mixture of all of them. 
  • Flour – This will act as a thickener in our mushroom stroganoff. We like to use Bob’s Red Mill organic all-purpose flour, but if you want a gluten-free alternative, you can use corn starch or tapioca flour. 
  • Wine – A dry white wine is ideal for this recipe. We like to use a Sauvignon Blanc, but other dry white wine options to consider are Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio. If you aren’t sure if the wine you want to use is vegan, you can use the website to check. 
  • Herbs – We are using fresh thyme with the stems removed in this recipe. We also garnish the dish with some fresh parsley. If you want to substitute the fresh thyme for dried, you’ll want to use one teaspoon of dried thyme for every tablespoon of fresh, but fresh herbs are always best. This recipe also requires two bay leaves. Bay leaves infuse an almost minty flavor into broths helping a decadent dish like this mushroom stroganoff not be so heavy. 
  • Tamari – If you aren’t familiar with tamari, it’s a Japanese fermented soy sauce typically gluten-free. If you don’t mind your stroganoff being gluten-free, you can also you soy sauce instead. Tamari or soy sauce will both add saltiness and umami to the recipe. 
  • Nutritional Yeast  Nooch is a deactivated form of brewers or bakers yeast loaded with nutrition. Nutritional yeast has vitamins and minerals and is an excellent source of vitamin B12. It has a good amount of protein too. Nutritional yeast adds a nutty and cheesy flavor to this recipe and helps give it that extra oomph. 
  • Pasta – Normally, this dish uses egg noodles, but we are using rotini wheat pasta to make this vegan. You can also use gluten-free pasta if you’d like, but the texture may not be similar.
  • Broth – We use a vegan beef broth to make this recipe, which provides a rich and delicious flavor. If you don’t have or can’t find vegan beef broth, you can also use vegetable broth. If you want to make this recipe even more decadent, you can use vegan butter or olive oil for sautéing your onions and garlic. 
  • Mustard – In this recipe, Dijon mustard is used because it has a tangy, sharp flavor with spice. It complements the other ingredients quite nicely. 
  • Sour Cream – Sour cream is a must-add ingredient in any stroganoff. Thankfully there are quite a few tasty dairy-free sour cream options. We like to use either Tofutti or Follow Your Heart
  • Salt & Pepper – Just a touch more spice to round out the vegan mushroom stroganoff.

One-Pot Vegan Mushroom Stroganoff​ (30-Minutes)

  • Author: Jasmine @ Sweet Simple Vegan
  • Total Time: 24 minutes
  • Yield: 4 large servings


Learn how to make this creamy Mushroom Stroganoff with one pot and just 30 minutes of your time.


  • 1/2 medium yellow onion, finely 
  • 6 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 10 oz. mushrooms sliced
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup vegan dry white wine (we used a Sauvignon Blanc)
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme (stems removed)
  • 2 teaspoons tamari (or soy sauce)
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 4 cups vegan beef broth (we used this brand)
  • 8 oz. rotini pasta
  • 1/2 cup vegan sour cream (we used Forager)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh parsley, finely chopped (for garnish)


  1. In a medium pot or pan over medium heat, add in 2 tablespoons of vegan beef broth. Once warmed, add in the onions and garlic, and sauté for about 3 minutes, stirring often, or until fragrant and translucent. Be sure to add more vegetable broth or water, 2 tablespoons at a time, as needed to prevent burning. 
  2. Add the mushrooms and cook until they begin to soften and browned, about 3 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle the flour over the mushroom mixture and mix through. Stir constantly for 2 minutes to cook the flour through. 
  4. Add in the vegan white wine and mix through. Cook for 1 minute.
  5. Add in the thyme, tamari, bay leaves, nutritional yeast and dijon mustard. Mix until well combined. Slowly being to add in the vegan beef broth, stirring constantly, until you have a smooth mixture. Add in the noodles and mix through.
  6. Allow the mixture to simmer and cook over medium-low heat for 8-10 minutes, or  until until the noodles are cooked through. Be sure to stir a few times to ensure the noodles do not  stick to the bottom.
  7. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the vegan sour cream. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve warm with a sprinkle of fresh parsley, for garnish.


  • We didn’t include these in our recipe, but carrots and celery are both great additions! We suggest adding in 1 large carrot, finely chopped and 1 rib of celery, finely chopped.
  • Not all wines are vegan due to the refining process they go through. To ensure your wine is vegan, check out Barnivore
  • If you don’t want to use vegan sour cream, other options are cashew butter (see this recipe), tahini or even sunflower butter. A vegan cream cheese would probably be tasty as well!
  • We have not test this with gluten-free noodles and cannot guarantee the results.

  1. Akin says:

    I used Kite Hill unsweetened Greek style almond milk yogurt instead of the sour cream as that was what was available and it worked great!

  2. Elise C Ozarowski says:

    Really should have doubled this because it’s JUST. THAT. GOOD.
    Side note vegan sour cream tastes just like the one I remember. It’s things like that that make it so easy to be vegan. Thanks!

  3. Molly says:

    What noodles did you use? They look more like egg noodles than traditional rotini, and I know my non-vegan husband would enjoy that more. Thanks!

    • These were just boxed rotini from Kroger!

    • Anna says:

      This was INCREDIBLE. It was hard not to eat it all myself. The only thing I did differently was I subbed sunflower seed sour cream and added maybe a teaspoon of Worcestershire. This is hands down one of the best recipes I’ve ever made! And the leftovers are fantastic heated up for breakfast haha

  4. Jen Johnston says:

    We made this a few nights ago and everyone loved it so much! Can’t wait to make it again!!!

  5. Lou McLaughlin says:

    My wife and I just started the vegan diet. I found this recipe and loved it. I made it with Simply Natural Red Lentil Rotini. It was fantastic. I shared some with a friend at work, who is not vegan and he also loved it. I also used a combination of white button and baby bellas and that worked great. I am looking forward to trying several recipes. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Kim says:

    I used mushroom broth and it was fantastic. I’ve made this twice and it’s now one of my favorite recipes.

  7. Laura says:

    This was excellent and super easy to put together! Will definitely make it again and again. Thank you.

  8. Tori Prewitt says:

    Just need to pop on here and let everyone know how amazing this recipe is. I’ve made it twice, once with white wine and tonight with red. Both turned out incredible…I think I may actually favor the red wine! 🙂 I used dried thyme tonight and tasted just as yummy. My husband can’t get enough of this dish. I gotta remember to double this next time!

  9. Lou says:

    Wow. This is so good. I’ve been vegan for about 2 months and I’ve made this 5 times. This is a really great recipe. If I would change one thing it would be to add more mushrooms. Other than that it’s about perfect.

  10. Alyssa says:

    This recipe is SO GOOD. I use a full box of sfoglini porcini trumpet pasta, and add a bit more of everything else as well. I can’t stop making this for people because I’m so amazed at how delicious it is, and easy!!

  11. Grace says:

    This recipe was absolutely amazing! I didn’t have any vegan sour cream at hand so I used coconut cream instead, it gave off a tiny coconut flavour but it was still amazing. I also substituted the flour for chick pea flour and it worked perfectly! 10/10 would recommend, so easy and so delicious! Thank you!!!

  12. Jean Melvin says:

    Can I substitute vegan mayonnaise instead of sour cream which I’m allergic too? Looks so delicious and I’m also a vegan now for the last 4 years.. thanks..

    • Chris Petrellese says:

      That should be a fine substitution. Since sour cream has more of a tang, we recommend tasting it first and maybe adding some lemon juice as well.

  14. Ashley Dotey says:

    Is there nutritional info on this recipe?

  15. Laura says:

    This looks great, what is the calories per serving

  16. Brandi says:

    Could I use coconut aminos instead of tamari?

  17. Sammi says:

    Delicious, I put tofutti sour cream in it and lil bit vegan cream cheese I had left plus a small amount cashew yoghurt I had. I used rotini and veggie penne also some Mini Xmas tree pasta too. I had no bay leaves but added thyme, parsley and Italian seasoning. I put some cooking sherry in it as well as no white wine so good, yummy def. fave now

  18. Alex-Anne says:

    Omg this was so good ! I used red wine instead of white and vegetables broth and it was still bomb. Would 100% recommend this recipe.

  19. Melissa Jackson says:

    This recipe is AMAZING!! I’m in heaven right now! I added a little extra sour cream just because I had it and I added some left over celery I had. Came out absolutely amazing!! Will definitely be making this again 🙂 Thanks for sharing this recipe!

  20. Angie says:

    Wow!! Eating this right now and it’s delicious! I used gluten free flour and pasta (cassava) and water in place of wine. Threw in some spinach at the end. Perfect comfort food. Thank you!!

  21. morgan says:

    i just made this recipe for my parents and i… and it was SO GOOD!! i totally recommend this recipe! it’s super easy to make and totally worth your time :)))

  22. Brittany W says:

    Okay I actually followed the recipe to a T, which I rarely do, and honestly this BLEW my mind. It was one of those meals that you go to taste and literally SCREAM. Or at least I did! Definitely doubling it next time! Incredible…. *round of applause*

  23. Emily Kuttenkuler says:

    I love your recipes and this one looks delicious! My question is about the vegan beef broth: it seems high in sodium to me. Is there something I can substitute for this?

    • Chris Petrellese says:

      Hey Emily,

      You could substitute the vegan beef broth with low-sodium vegetable broth if you’d like!

  24. Leslie Smith says:

    This dish was amazing! I used a GF corn based pasta and it turned out perfect. We looked forward to leftovers for 3 days!!

  25. Elise says:

    I have made this recipe probably 20 times now. I’m not one to write reviews but felt compelled to do so for this because it is SO SO GOOD! And it is EASY! I love making this to have leftovers, or to feed a small group. Stroganoff was one of my top 3 favorite meals as a kid, so I love making a satisfying vegan version 🙂 I usually add some soy crumbles or vegan chicken for protein, but is amazing on its own. Thank you for creating one of my favorite recipes!!

  26. Marla says:

    I love stroganoff and this did not disappoint!

  27. Deanna says:

    This was amazing!! First time using vegan sour cream, and it was so good! The wine really adds something too! I used whote wheat rotini because I like the texture! Thanks!!
