Recipe of the month: Vegan Stroganoff with Soy Chunks

vegan stroganoff

Enjoy this culinary experience with our Vegan Stroganoff featuring soy chunks, a delectable dish designed for two. This hearty and satisfying recipe combines the rich, umami flavours of mushrooms and soy with a harmonious blend of spices and creamy textures, all while remaining entirely plant-based.



  1. Begin by dicing the onions, mincing the garlic, and finely chopping the chili pepper. Also, chop the mushrooms into small, bite-sized pieces.
  2. In a large pot, heat some vegetable oil over medium heat. Sauté the onions, garlic, and chili until they become translucent and develop a slight caramelization.
  3. At this point, introduce all the spices for an explosion of flavor. Add a few tablespoons of paprika, a tablespoon of smoked paprika, two teaspoons of garlic powder, jalapeño flakes (adjust to your preferred spice level), and a pinch of thyme. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
  4. Stir the spices into the onion mixture and allow them to toast for a minute or two, releasing their aromas and infusing the dish with depth.
  5. Add the chopped mushrooms and soy chunks to the pot. Mix thoroughly to ensure the spices and flavors coat the ingredients. Add the tomato puree, crushed tomatoes, and a tablespoon of vegetable broth.
  6. Rinse the tomato cans with water and pour that water into the pot. You might need to add more water occasionally as the soy chunks absorb a significant amount of liquid during cooking.
  7. Enhance the flavor profile with a touch of ketchup and mustard, to your taste. A few tablespoons or more can be used, depending on your preferences. If you fancy a bit of tanginess, throw in some pickled onions.
  8. Elevate the umami with a few spoons of miso paste, contributing to the dish's depth and richness.
  9. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer gently for at least 45 minutes to an hour. Stir regularly to ensure the flavors meld together harmoniously.
  10. Periodically taste the stroganoff and make adjustments as needed. You might find yourself adding more salt, mustard, or smoked paprika for that perfect balance.
  11. If you have fresh herbs like rosemary, thyme, or parsley, now is the time to incorporate them for an extra layer of freshness.
  12. To finish, swirl in some vegan sour cream or cashew cream, and serve your delightful Vegan Stroganoff with rice or creamy mashed potatoes.

Enjoy the delightful flavors of this vegan stroganoff, where sustainability meets deliciousness. Share this wonderful meal with someone special for an unforgettable culinary experience.
