This Vegan Mushroom Stroganoff is a family fave that again is really versatile. If you don’t do mushrooms you can easily substitute for your favourite protein source. If you have an allergy to nuts you can omit cashews and substitute with cream. We try to avoid dairy so we love it with cashews as it makes a creamy delicious dairy-free cream sauce.
One of my favourite things about this recipe is that it feels and tastes like comfort food and it can whipped up in under 20 minutes. As a mom of 3, you will notice a trend of quick and easy meal ideas because I get it. Time can be a huge factor when it comes to healthy eating, I am here to make it easy, delicious and remove time as an excuse for getting a good meal on the table.
If you are new to plant-based or vegan cooking you might be wondering what nutritional yeast is, I get that question a lot so I wanted to share our favourite brand. We love Bob’s Red Mills Nutritional Yeast you can pick up in most grocery stores or you can order on Amazon see link below.
Nutritional yeast is amazing to add into your diet if you are vegan because it is a great source of vitamin B12. Typically this vitamin comes from animal based sources, meaning that you can become deficient overtime on a plant-based diet if you are not mindful of it. It also makes recipes so delicious and cheesy so have fun using it in casseroles, dairy-free cream sauces, cheese sauce with potatoes and carrots, or sprinkle on your salads or soups for more nutrients. One quarter cup of nutritional yeast also provides 8 gram of protein, 3 grams of fibre, and lots of vitamin B1, B2, B3, B6 and folate.
