My quick and delicious mushroom stroganoff recipe (gluten free & vegetarian)

gluten free mushroom stroganoff recipe

One thing I’ve wanted to make for a long time is a gluten free mushroom stroganoff. There’s something about the rich and creamy white wine sauce which is just the ultimate winter comfort food, don’t you think? And I kind of like the idea of a mushroom stroganoff over beef, as the mushrooms give a really rich and delicious flavour to the sauce.

When I first made a gluten free mushroom stroganoff, I couldn’t believe how easy it was. Why hadn’t I made this before!? In about 15 minutes I had this beautiful dish in front of me which tasted like it should have taken a lot longer. I served mine up with rice, but I think this would also be delicious with a crusty, gluten free baguette straight from the oven. And a crisp, cold glass of pinot of course!

This recipe is another of my attempts to eat a bit less meat each week. However, I just couldn’t let go of the dairy – this recipe is best with lashings of butter and crème fraîche! I have seen a soya vegan cream in Sainsbury’s though, so maybe I will give this recipe a go with that one day instead and see what a dairy free version is like. I’d love to know what you think if you’re dairy free and give it a go! 

To get the best basmati rice to serve with this, I like to add mine to add mine to a pan of boiler water with a knob of butter. Turn down, cover and leave to simmer for 10 minutes before draining any excess water and fluffing the rice up. I then ladled the mushroom stroganoff over the rice, before sprinkling with lots of freshly chopped parsley.
