What is stroganoff?
Traditional stroganoff is a Russian dish made with beef, a dry marinade and a roux of mustard and broth, along with sour cream. In the original beef stroganoff dish, there were no onions, mushrooms, or alcohol.
During the 1950s and 1960s, it became more popularized in the United States.
The popular United States version has beef, mushrooms, onions, and sour cream. It is usually served over wide egg noodles or rice.
What we have done for this vegan mushroom stroganoff is to omit the beef and add in all the flavor with mushrooms. The end results is a rich, caramelized pasta dish that is so creamy and flavorful, you’ll shock others that you made it and it’s not from a restaurant.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I make this vegan vegan mushroom stroganoff pasta Top 8 Allergen Free?
The ingredients that we need to look at here are the pasta, vegan butter, vegan worcestershire, flour, and sour cream.
For the pasta, you can use gluten free pasta, or inside serve over rice, or potatoes.
For the vegan butter, use a soy free version like Earth Balance soy free or Flora.
For the worcestershire, you can use a vegan-friendly steak sauce.
The flour can be swapped with a gluten free 1:1 blend or a single flour like chickpea or almond.
Lastly, view our vegan sour cream taste test to see which brand would suit your allergies.
What did you use to make vegan beef broth?
We used Edward & Sons Not Beef Bouillon Cubes for this recipe and mixed with water to give us our broth according to the package instructions.
I can’t find vegan beef broth substitute, what else can I use?
Our first recommendation, would be to use mushroom broth. Yes, even if you don’t like mushrooms, this is what we would recommend because of the flavor profile similarities. If you still can’t find that, try to flavor some vegetable stock with a more umami flavor like mushroom seasoning, soy sauce, vegan worcestershire, etc.
Can I replace the vegan butter with another oil?
Yes you could. Coconut oil would be the best replacement and then another like olive or avocado oil. It will not have the same creaminess though.
How can I make this oil free?
You can just add more vegetable stock in the beginning. It will drastically change the taste and not be as rich, but if you are used to being oil free then you will likely not mind.
DOES IT MATTER WHAT TYPE OF PASTA THAT I USE?
We are using wide noodles in the photos, but you could use any past.
Try linguine or tubular shaped pasta, like penne, and even ones like rotini or shells that can pick up and hold onto all the sauce. Whatever you have on hand will work perfectly.
Can I add anything else to the dish besides the pasta and sauce?
Absolutely. Here’s some ideas:
- Vegan beef pieces
- vegan chicken strips
- crispy chickpeas
- crispy tofu pieces
- crispy cauliflower
For the remaining, you can either cook those in the skillet first and then set aside and add back in at the end or cook in another skillet while making the pasta.
Can I prep this vegan pasta ahead of time?
Yes! We’d recommend letting this cool completely and then storing in an air tight container for up to 5 days. If you meal prep you can split this up into individual containers.
You may want to or feel like you need a splash or two of dairy free milk when reheating.
Can this be frozen?
We don’t recommend freezing this dish.
What size skillet should I use for this vegan pasta dish?
You want a large skillet, approximately 12 inches; however, you don’t want it so large that the sauce is too spread out.
The larger the skillet the more quickly the liquid will reduce. So you want it large enough that it will evenly cook the pasta, but not so large you cook down your sauce too fast.
You could also use a large pot or dutch oven, but try to keep the size the same.
WHAT SIDES TO SERVE WITH THIS VEGAN CREAMY PASTA DISH?
There are endless possibilities but a side salad and some bread are great starting points.
Here’s some bread ideas:
