As a mushroom enthusiast and avid cook, I’m excited to share my favorite mushroom stroganoff recipes with you. Mushroom stroganoff is a classic comfort food with a rich and creamy sauce that perfectly complements the earthy flavor of mushrooms. Whether you’re a vegetarian looking for a hearty dish or simply a mushroom lover, this recipe is sure to become a favorite in your kitchen.

Classic Mushroom Stroganoff Recipe

For the classic mushroom stroganoff, you’ll need:

  1. 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  2. 1 onion, finely chopped
  3. 3 garlic cloves, minced
  4. 1 pound of mixed mushrooms (such as cremini, shiitake, and oyster), sliced
  5. 1 tablespoon of paprika
  6. 1 cup of vegetable broth
  7. 1 cup of sour cream
  8. Salt and pepper to taste
  9. Cooked egg noodles or rice for serving

To start, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, and sauté until softened. Then, add the mushrooms and cook until they release their juices and become tender. Stir in the paprika and vegetable broth, and let the mixture simmer for a few minutes.

Next, reduce the heat and stir in the sour cream until the sauce is smooth and heated through. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve the stroganoff over cooked egg noodles or rice, and garnish with fresh parsley if desired.

Personal Twist: Creamy Coconut Mushroom Stroganoff

For a unique twist on the classic recipe, I love to use coconut milk instead of sour cream for a creamy and slightly sweet flavor. The coconut milk adds a wonderful richness to the dish, and it pairs beautifully with the earthy mushrooms.

To make the creamy coconut mushroom stroganoff, simply substitute the sour cream with full-fat coconut milk. You can also add a squeeze of lemon juice at the end to brighten the flavors. This variation is perfect for anyone looking to experiment with new and exciting flavors in their cooking.

Tips for Mushroom Selection

When making mushroom stroganoff, I recommend using a variety of mushrooms to create a depth of flavor. While cremini mushrooms provide a meaty texture, shiitake mushrooms add an intense, smoky taste. Don’t be afraid to mix and match different types of mushrooms to tailor the stroganoff to your personal preference.


Whether you’re sticking to the classic recipe or exploring new variations, mushroom stroganoff is a versatile and comforting dish that never fails to impress. With the right combination of mushrooms and a flavorful sauce, this recipe is a true crowd-pleaser. I hope you enjoy experimenting with different ingredients and making this dish your own.
