A quick and easy lightened -up (and vegetarian) version of classic Stroganoff. All the creamy mushroom goodness of traditional Stroganoff but lightened up a bit. Only a little over 300 calories a serving.
This mushroom stroganoff is super easy to make!. I bought pre-sliced mushrooms from the store just to keep the prep time to a minimum. So really the only prep time was chopping the onion . From there, you’ll just need a big skillet. Sauté the onions until they are lightly browned. Add the mushrooms and cook until they have softened and released most of their juices.(about 5 min.) Add the remaining ingredients and cook until the sauce thickens…and that’s it! Creamy + Light + Mushrooms+ Pasta = More please!
I’m using cremini mushrooms for this stroganoff because I think their flavor is a bit deeper and more complex than white mushrooms . I say bring it on! The more earthy mushroom flavor the better in my book! But, if you are looking for a more mild mushroom flavor you might want to consider using white button mushrooms instead.
While the mushroom stroganoff is delicious over pasta, there are so many options on how to serve it! You could serve it over rice, spoon it on top of a baked potato (or sweet potato), over quinoa or polenta, I even added in some fresh kale and topped a toasted English muffin. That’s the beauty of mushrooms, there are so darn versatile!
If you want to keep things lower carb, you could easily serve the mushroom stroganoff over zucchini noodles, or cauliflower rice.
