Vegetarian Beef Stroganoff
This is a great vegan version of traditional Beef Stroganoff. I use Seitan as a beef alternative. Seitan a protein derived from wheat gluten. It is vegan if you use soy sour cream.
NOTE: If you choose to use beef please choose a lean and organically raised product
2 cups sliced Seitan
2 tablespoons non-hydrogenated vegetable margarine
2 tablespoons minced shallots
1/2 cup thinly sliced onions
2 cups sliced cremini mushrooms
2 tablespoons vegan Worcestershire (contains no anchovies)
Pinch of nutmeg
¼ cup white wine
1 cup low fat sour cream or soy sour cream
2 tablespoons flour
Pinch of salt
Fresh ground pepper
Fresh chopped parsley for garnish
Note: The wine is optional, you can use ¼ cup of vegetable broth and a pinch of sugar instead.
In a large pan, melt the margarine over medium-high heat. Add the shallots, onions and mushrooms and sauté until slightly softened.
Add the white wine, Worcestershire and nutmeg and continue sautéing. Add the seitan. Mix the flour into the sour cream and stir into the seitan mixture. Simmer for about 5-7 minutes. Garnish with the parsley before serving.
I like to serve this dish with rice or noodles. On the show I used egg-free egg noodles. There are also some great low-carb pasta options available if you are watching your carbohydrate intake.
