This is a super quick one pot meal with the very flavorful stroganoff sauce with mushrooms and then I add beans for the protein. It’s just a super flexible and super delicious recipe. You can change out some ingredients, if you don’t have everything on hand, and it will still turn out amazing.

This bean stroganoff is a vegan version of beef stroganoff, a French dish made popular in Russia, that uses beef in a creamy mushroom-mustard sauce. Here, I’m replacing the beef with white beans to create a satisfying vegan version.

You can serve bean stroganoff with bread for dipping — like toasted sourdough, flatbread, or garlic bread — or dish it up over noodles.

Try this stroganoff with amazing flavor and packed with mushrooms for umami and white beans for protein! All the amazing flavor and ready in 30 minutes using just 1 pan!

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce use tamari for gluten-free
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard , depending on how much of the mustard flavor you want in the sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt less or more as needed
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/3 cup vegan sour cream or vegan yogurt or a thick non-dairy cream
  • 2 tablespoons vegan parmesan
  • 1/2 to 1 cup (118.29 ml) water or vegetable broth
  • 15 ounce (425.24 g) can white beans or 1 1/2 cups of cooked white beans, such as great northern beans, cannellini beans, or other white beans of choice or use chickpeas or lentils

For Garnish

  • more vegan parmesan, pepper flakes
  • chopped fresh herbs such as parsley, basil, or dill

Instructions

  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat, add the oil, and then add the onion and garlic and a good pinch of salt. Cook, stirring frequently, until the onion is translucent and starting to turn golden. Add splashes of water to help the onion cook evenly. 4 to 5 minutes.

  • Add in the mushrooms and another good pinch of salt, and cook for a minute. Then, mix in the soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, and Dijon mustard. Mix really well, and continue to cook until the mushrooms are al dente, another 5 to 7 minutes. If the pan is drying out too much, you can cover the pan to retain moisture and to help the mushrooms cook faster.

  • Now, mix in all of the herbs and salt. Mix in the non-dairy yogurt/sour cream and vegan Parmesan.

  • Add in 1/2 cup of the water or broth and all of the beans, tossing well, then cover and cook for 6 to 8 minutes.

  • Taste and adjust salt and flavor. Add more of the water or broth, if you want the beans to be saucier, or cook for a few minutes longer without the lid, if you want the sauce to thicken a lot. The sauce thickens as it cools, so you want to adjust accordingly.

  • Switch off the heat, garnish with some vegan Parmesan, pepper flakes, and herbs of choice. Serve with fresh bread, toasted bread, or garlic bread or other sides of choice. You can also serve this over pasta or baked potato or mashed potatoes. 
  • Store refrigerated for upto 3 days. Reheat on the stove or microwave. Add non dairy milk if the sauce has thickened too much.
