Mushroom Stroganoff, a delightful and plant-based variation of the traditional dish, brings together an array of nutrient-rich ingredients, offering a satisfying and flavorful meal. This hearty stroganoff combines whole wheat pasta, a healthier alternative to refined pasta, packed with higher fibre content, aiding in digestion and potentially lowering the risk of heart disease. Portabella mushrooms, a key ingredient in this recipe, are not only rich in antioxidants but also a great source of B vitamins, aiding in energy production and supporting a healthy nervous system. Including brown onion and garlic provides essential micronutrients and antioxidants, potentially boosting the immune system and promoting overall health. The tomato paste offers lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that may reduce the risk of certain chronic diseases.
The incorporation of lemon juice not only adds a zesty tang to the dish but also contributes vitamin C, promoting skin health and supporting the body’s immune system. Soy sauce, while enhancing the savoury flavour, contributes to the dish’s umami taste and provides a source of protein, essential amino acids, and iron.
The vegetable stock adds depth to the flavour profile and offers a lighter base than traditional meat stocks, providing a dose of essential nutrients. Lastly, Deb Plowman’s white sauce, a creamy plant-based addition.
Overall, this Mushroom Stroganoff not only presents a flavorful, creamy, and filling dish but also incorporates various nutrient-dense elements that contribute to a well-rounded meal, offering essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants crucial for overall health and well-being.
