Recipe by Kozmic Blues
This delicious vegetarian version of stroganoff comes from one of my favorite cookbooks: The Vegetarian Meat and Potatoes Cookbook. It was also suggested that cooked green beans can be added to this at the end with the tofu to add some additional color, flavor and texture. Hope you enjoy this dish as much as I do!

- 1 lb extra firm tofu, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
- 1 large yellow onion, chopped
- 8 ounces white button mushrooms, sliced

- 1 1⁄2 cups vegetable stock (or water) or 1 1⁄2 cups broth (or water)

- Next, add sliced mushrooms and cook until they begin to release their juices, about 1-2 minutes.
- Stir in paprika and flour and coat onions and mushroom.
- Be sure to cook for about 1 minute, stirring constantly, in order to remove the raw taste from the flour.

- Add tofu back to skillet and simmer for about 5 more minutes over low heat until heated through.
