What I Like

What I Don't Like

  • They have some sodium added, which is not a harmful preservative, but it might alter the taste. Yet, delicious!

Maybe you've heard of Mushroom masala, but in case you haven't, it is a traditional and classic Indian dish that is beyond exquisite and easy to prepare. This dish is also known as "mushroom masala curry" or "mushroom curry" because the original recipe includes curry over a bed of rice. It is usually accompanied by chapati, but not always. As much of traditional Indian dishes, this mushroom masala is vegan and animal-friendly. Let's check!

I often use fresh mushrooms in cooking, but they are not always available, you know? I use them for spaghetti sauce or pizza or stew, so from time to time I need to buy them canned. These canned organic mushrooms are surprisingly tasty for canned mushrooms, and definitely these are the ones I'm going to keep on hand. I ordered a box of them and honestly, the price is a bargain if compared to the price of some national brands.

I definitely recommend these organic mushroom because the favor will change completely. They're really good, great for any cooking, and for now they're my brand of choice.

Creamy Vegan Organic Organic Mushroom Stroganoff

Stroganoff is a traditional Russian dish normally prepared with meat and dairies. This vegan version of Stroganoff with Giorgio's organic mushrooms will make your water mouth! And you won't believe how tasty and easy to prepare this is. Let's see...

For the ingredients (5 servings)

  • 4 – 5 tablespoon vegan butter
  • 1 small yellow onion (or large shallot). It should sliced finely.
  • 3 minced cloves garlic
  • 2 cans of Giorgio's sliced organic mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • ¾ cup dry white wine
  • 1 ¼ cup low-sodium vegetable broth
  • ½ – ¾ cup vegan sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley, plus more to serve
  • salt + pepper, to taste
  • 12 – 16 oz. pasta (use your favorite!)

For the preparation:

Step 1

Cook the pasta according to package directions until al dente. Drain and reserve some of the pasta water.

Step 2

Stroganoff: First, heat the butter in a medium pot over medium-high heat, add onion and fry until golden, that will take more or less 5 minutes. Later, add the garlic and the 2 cans of organic mushrooms. Cook another 5 minutes. Now, add the flour (we recommend using a whole some version, instead of regular white flour), stirring to fully incorporate and white streaks. Let the flour cook for around 1 minute. Stir in the wine and broth and allow the preparation to gentle boil at medium heat for another 5 minutes or until the sauce has slightly thickened. Now pour in the sour cream and parsley. Season with salt and pepper to taste. And don't forget to keep it herby!

Step 3

Now you just simply put all together: add the pasta to the mushroom sauce and toss gently a little bit. If your sauce is to thick, you can add some pasta water to loosen it up. Alternatively, put the pasta into individual bowls and cover ir with the sauce on top. Serve and enjoy!

Alright, for this recipe we strongly suggest you to try our perfect scorer organic mushrooms here. Most canned mushrooms are grown in who-knows-what conditions, with who-knows-what pesticides and chemicals but it is not the case of Giorgio's organic mushrooms. These shrooms are grown in the USA, they are also certified organically grown, and taste like heaven. Honestly, if you want to take the flavor of your vegan stroganoff to a whole new level, do not hesitate to use these organic mushrooms.

Obviously, I prefer fresh mushrooms but these are an excellent alternative when fresh shrooms are not available. The texture and the flavor are really good. Very handy to have when you want to add mushrooms to any recipe!

Now, the ideal type of mushrooms for this dish are fresh instead of canned sliced ones, and we strongly recommend you to try Back to the Roots Organic Mushrooms. They are not only fresh but they come in a very practical and quite innovative growing kit!

The Back To The Roots mushroom kit renders very nice brown oyster mushrooms within a few days of rehydrating the substrate. some suggestions after trying the kit: since hydration is the primary factor for producing good flushes from kits, we suggest that you remove the substrate completely from the bag, then submerge the substrate block overnight in clean, cold water. The next day, drain the substrate block, pat it dry with paper towels, then return it to the bag and fruit as normal. Following this procedure this kit produced 160g of fresh mushrooms on the first flush, and about half of that on the second flush.

As I prefer fresh mushrooms over sliced ones, I would definitely recommend this organic mushroom growing kit. It's simple to assemble and easy to harvest! Fresh shrooms at hands for delicious recipes anytime!
