1 yellow onion, finely diced
- 2 sprigs fresh thyme
- 1 sprig fresh rosemary, finely chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon tomato paste
- ½ cup white wine
- 1 tablespoon vegetarian Worcestershire sauce
- 1 cup vegetable stock
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 ½ teaspoons Dijon mustard
- ½ cup crème fraîche or sour cream
- Salt & pepper to taste
- Sweet paprika, for dusting
- Handful of chopped parsley leaves, for garnishing
- Freshly grated Parmesan cheese, for garnishing (optional)
- Mashed potatoes, wide egg noodles, polenta, or rice, for serving
Finely dice the onion, chop the mushrooms, and mince the garlic, thyme, and rosemary. Have all other ingredients on hand.
Cook the Base:
In a large (12-inch) skillet over medium-high heat, add olive oil and onion. Season with salt and sauté for 2-3 minutes until translucent.
Add the Mushrooms and Herbs: Stir in the mushrooms, thyme, rosemary, and garlic. Let them cook for 8-10 minutes. For better caramelization, avoid stirring for 2-3 minute intervals.
Introduce the tomato paste and stir well, letting it cook for another 2 minutes.
Deglaze the Pan: Pour in the white wine, scraping up the flavorful browned bits at the bottom of the skillet. Let it simmer for 1 minute.
Build the Sauce:
Add in the Worcestershire sauce, vegetable stock, and soy sauce. Simmer for 5-7 minutes, allowing the liquid to reduce slightly.
Remove the skillet from heat. Stir in Dijon mustard and crème fraîche. Taste and season with salt, pepper, and a dusting of sweet paprika.
Plate your choice of side (mashed potatoes, noodles, polenta, or rice). Ladle the stroganoff over, garnishing with chopped parsley and optional grated Parmesan.
- The choice and ratio of mushrooms can be adjusted based on personal preferences.
- Ensure your Worcestershire sauce is vegetarian.
- The dish pairs beautifully with a glass of Pinot Noir or Chardonnay.
