Seitan and Mushroom Stroganoff (Vegan)

Total Time
Prep 40 mins
Cook 0 mins

This is the best vegetarian or vegan stroganoff I've tried yet. It came from Farm Sanctuary's Guide to Vegan Living and I've only slightly changed it. One way I improved it for our taste is by using Mckay's Chicken Seasoning broth instead of Vegetable Broth or water and adding 3 Tablespoons of Vegan Sour Cream. We will be making this often from now on. Hope you enjoy it!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Gravy: Stir cornstarch and soy sauce together in a 2-quart saucepan and make a thin, smooth, paste. Whisk in the broth or water and garlic granules. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly until it thickens and comes to a boil. Remove from heat and beat in the tahini and vegan sour cream. Cover the saucepan and set aside.
  2. Place oil in a large skillet and heat over medium-high. When the oil is hot, sauté the onion and garlic for 10 minutes.
  3. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring often, for 5 to 7 minutes.
  4. Stir the seitan strips and the reserved gravy into the onions and mushrooms. Reduce heat to low and stir often, about 5 to 10 minutes, until the seitan is heated through.
  5. Season the stroganoff with ground pepper. Serve at once over egg-free noodles.

Really good and hearty veg food, this. The only thing I would do different would be to let the seitan soak in the gravy for a bit before cooking...just to impart a bit more flavor to it. It was still really fantastic, though!

This was delicious. I did make some substitutions based on what I had on hand and it was so good I don't think I'll change to the original when I make this again (and I will definitely be making this again). I used vegan beef broth instead of chicken broth. Additionally, I thought I had seitan, which is actually how I came across this recipe, but didn't so I replaced it with Gardein beefless tips. This was definitely not a paltry substitute of a hearty classic; this is a fantastic, homey meal in its own right. It's sure to please any meat-eater or any herbivore missing meat.

This was really great! Doesn't taste exactly like traditional stroganoff but is really flavorful and hearty. Will make again! Thanks Enjolinfam....
