Vegetarian Mushroom Stroganoff

This homemade mushroom stroganoff recipe is vegan, soy free, and can easily be gluten free.

It’s one of my favorite plant-based comfort food meals, especially on a chilly Fall or winter evening, because the blanket of thick mushroom gravy will warm you right up.

Don’t forget to make a batch of Black Bean Brownies for dessert!

NO heavy cream required.

The recipe is easy to customize – throw in a handful of spinach, peas, carrots, or diced sweet potato if you’d like.

Or to make this vegetarian version of traditional beef stroganoff even more filling, simply stir in your favorite protein source, such as tofu, black beans, or even chickpeas.

Leftovers reheat well and make a great on-the-go lunch, packed into a thermos alongside homemade Keto Muffins or these Banana Muffins.

You can cook the mushroom stroganoff in a slow cooker or crock pot or on the stove, whichever you prefer.

I haven’t tried it in an instant pot, so be sure to report back with results if you do try it that way.

I usually serve it with pasta, such as Tagliatelle, but you could also serve it with rice, quinoa, mashed potatoes or sweet potatoes, or anything else that sounds good to you.

For a keto or low carb version, the stroganoff would be perfect over roasted cauliflower or spaghetti squash – here’s the best way how to cook spaghetti squash.

To thicken the mushroom stroganoff, pretty much any flour can be used, including spelt, white, sorghum, rice, or even coconut flour for a low carb version.

Mushroom Stroganoff–The Best Creamy Recipe

Total Time:
2-3 servings



  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 2 tsp oil, or oil spray
  • 18 oz sliced mushrooms
  • 2 1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • salt and optional pepper
  • optional 1/4 tsp dried thyme
  • 2/3 cup vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened creamer or canned coconut milk, or milk of choice for lower calorie
  • 2-4 tbsp flour of choice, including spelt, white, rice, sorghum, or coconut
  • optional protein of choice, such as lentils, tofu, or chickpeas


*Notes: Use the higher amount of flour for a thicker gravy, or add more broth if the stroganoff gets too thick. I add 1/2 tsp salt if eating on its own, or 1 tsp if using as gravy to go over pasta or a grain. If making the recipe in a slow cooker, simply combine all ingredients and let cook on high 3-4 hours.

Sauté the onions in oil or spray over medium heat in a large nonstick pan until they begin to brown. Add the mushrooms, salt, garlic, and optional thyme. Stir occasionally. The mushrooms will get watery. Let it cook until the pan starts to look dry again (about 10 minutes). Whisk in broth, milk, and flour. Cook—stirring as needed—until it thickens. I like to add extra milk or creamer at the end before serving. If you make the recipe, be sure to give it a star rating at the bottom of this post!
