Mushroom stroganoff flexitarian blog flexitarian recipe


As my love affair with food that involves carbs and creamy sauces unashamedly continues, here’s another flexitarian recipe – Mushroom Stroganoff.  A meatless stroganoff that’s easily turned into a traditional stroganoff by adding rump or fillet beef strips when you fry the mushrooms.

Or if you’re cooking for mixed tastes, fry the beef strips separately and pour the stroganoff  sauce over them as you would a mushroom sauce.
