Elise's Baby Bella Mushroom Stroganoff

I think that we all have a handful of recipes that are our time tested favorites.  This is one of mine.  My mom made Beef Stroganoff for us when we were kids, so this is one of those recipes that emotes home and comfort and warmth and love.  I craved it when I was pregnant with all three of my kiddies... even when I was sick!  The truth is, it always sounds good to me.  So here is a culinary hug from my kitchen to yours.  ENJOY!

8 oz. baby bella mushrooms, washed and sliced
1 yellow onion, halved and sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cube Edwards & Sons Not Beef Bouillon + 1 cup boiling water
1/2 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 teaspoon ground mustard
1 tablespoon cornstarch + 2 tablespoons cold water, mixed
1/3 cup tofu 'sour cream'

1.  Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium high heat and saute the onions, garlic and mushrooms for 10  minutes.
2.  Add the bouillon/water mixture, worcestershire sauce, tomato paste and ground mustard and simmer uncovered for 15 minutes.
3.  Stir in the 'sour cream' and then the cornstarch/water mixture.  The sauce should thicken up at this point.
4.  Serve over rice or noodles of your choice.  I served mine over rotini pasta.

This looks great! I have been craving comfort food lately. I made a mac and cheese recipe last night that totally bombed, stroganoff is just as warm and yummy as mac and cheese.

Ground mustard in Stroganoff? That's a new one. I'll have to keep it in mind for next time.

I LOVE the ground mustard in it. It's what my Great Aunt used in her Stoganoff.

I think I'll make this tonight. What is ground mustard? Just regular mustard??

Elise said...

reneeB - You can find ground mustard in the baking section of your grocery store, where the spices are. You could possibly substitute Dijon Mustard, but I think that ground would be best.

Hope that helps!

Thanks for sharing this great recipe! The baby bellas are delicious in this, and I agree with other reviewers that the ground mustard is a nice touch.

One note of caution...if you are a strict vegan, make sure your Worcestershire sauce does not contain anchovies! You can buy vegetarian Worcestershire at most health food stores, but I have also found that some of the cheaper varieties (like the kind at my local dollar store) don't contain anchovies.
