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

  3. Add the sliced champignons together with the rehydrated porcini mushrooms and truffle and cook for 3-5 minutes more; add the garlic together with dried thyme and cook for a minute more.
  4. 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.
  5. While the sauce is cooking, bring a pot with salted water to a boil and cook the noodles according to the package’s instructions.
  6. Right before serving, add the dill to the sauce and stir; scoop a generous amount of sauce over the noodles and serve warm.
