Easy Wild Mushroom and Truffle Stroganoff
Vegetarian Stroganoff with Wild Mushrooms and Black Truffle
Stroganoff sauce is a Russian gravy enhanced with sour cream. The dish is usually made with beef and mushrooms and it is served over egg noodles or rice. It can also be made vegetarian using just mushrooms or vegan by replacing the sour cream with a vegan alternative and choosing an egg-free pasta. We decided on the vegetarian version and we didn’t even consider adding beef as our porcini mushrooms are so flavorful! and "meaty" on their own

- Add 1 tsp of flour and mix well to coat the mushrooms; add the wine or Prosecco, deglaze and cook until the alcohol has evaporated, for about 3-5 minutes; add the stock, the seasonings, and cook covered, on medium-low heat for about 20 minutes.
- While the sauce is cooking, bring a pot with salted water to a boil and cook the noodles according to the package’s instructions.
