This is the perfect dish when you suddenly realise that you have too many mushrooms in the fridge and you’re never going to get through them all. You can use any type of mushrooms, and mixing different types together will add even more flavour and texture. If you want to go carb free, then you could replace the rice with butter beans!

  • 1 tbsp cooking oil
  • 1 white onion, diced
  • 400g/14 oz mushrooms, chopped – any variety will work but I recommend chestnut and portobello
  • 30g/1 oz fresh herbs – dill and/or parsley work best but use whatever you have
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 splash vegan white wine
  • 4 tbsp vegan cream (Oatly creme fraiche or Alpro soya cream both work well)
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 handfuls of rocket or watercress leaves (or a mix of the two)
  • 150g/5⅓ oz basmati rice


  1. Fry the onion gently in the oil until translucent.
  2. Add the mushrooms to the pan and when they’re soft add a splash of white wine and let it absorb.
  3. Rinse the rice and add to a saucepan with 350ml/1½ cups lightly salted boiling water, fresh from the kettle. Let it simmer gently with the lid on. When the water is absorbed turn the heat off and take off the lid.
  4. Meanwhile, season the mushrooms and onions with the paprika and some salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Add the vegan cream and Dijon mustard, a squeeze of lemon juice and fresh herbs.
  6. Serve the the Stroganoff alongside the basmati rice with a handful of salad leaves.

We create vital resources to help educate everyone – vegan veterans, novices and the v-curious alike – about vegan food, health and nutrition; as well as the plight of farmed animals and the devastating environmental impact of farming.

Through this work we have helped thousands of people discover veganism; but we want to reach millions more! We rely entirely on donations as we don’t get any government funding.
