Method

  1. Heat 2 tsp olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan and soften 1 finely chopped onion for about 5 mins.

  2. Add 1 tbsp paprika and 2 crushed garlic cloves, then cook for 1 min more. Add 300g mixed mushrooms and cook on a high heat, stirring often, for about 5 mins.

  3. Pour in 150ml low-sodium beef or vegetable stock and 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce or vegetarian alternative.

  4. Bring to the boil, bubble for 5 mins until the sauce thickens, then turn off the heat and stir through 3 tbsp half-fat soured cream and most of the small bunch of roughly chopped parsley. Make sure the pan is not on the heat or the sauce may split.

  5. Heat 250g pouch cooked wild rice following pack instructions, then stir through the remaining chopped parsley and serve with the stroganoff.

I added more mushrooms as 300g is not enough and a slash of red wine. Delicious!!

Delicious. I'm dairy-free so I left out the soured cream but added a dollop of mayo on the top. I didn't add all the paprika (chickened out) but I would next time.

I've made this a few times and it's delicious! It doesn't serve two because I end up eating it all in one go haha! I pair it with mushroom rice for added flavour. Really quick and easy to do - I love it :)

Just made this (a slightly edited version!) for my sister. Added a sliced red pepper as well as the mushrooms, just because it was in the fridge! I thought a tablespoon of paprika seemed a LOT for 2 servings, so I just used a good heaped teaspoon. Also used full fat soured cream as couldn't find the half fat, and a tiny bit of marmite as had no veggie Worcester sauce. It was quick, easy and very tasty indeed. Will definitely make it again.

Lovely recipe and will make again. I won't add the water next time as I found it far too runny as the musrooms are watery enough.

Think I added too much paprika and Worcestershire sauce as it was crazy spicy. Apart from that, love the texture and flavour of this very filling, quick meal.

Such a comforting, moorish recipe, great for using up an abundance of mushrooms. I added some red wine and whole grain mustard to the mix, and used yoghurt at the end rather than sour cream. Sprinkled with dill, this was a delicious supper.

Delicious! I used twice the amount of garlic as well as some dried porcini and chestnut mushrooms. I added the soaking water from the porcini to the pan for extra flavour. I used Greek yoghurt instead of cream.

This recipe is to die for. I'm not even vegetarian but I make this regularly now because it's honestly tastier than any of the meat-based stroganoffs I've ever tried. It's got such a deep, rich flavour, and so quick and simple to make. Heavenly.

Added some dried mushrooms and used a mix of paprika/smoked paprika/cayenne pepper turned out really nice. A recipe I will use again for sure!

Hi there, this recipe doesn't freeze well as it contains low fat ingredients.

Where it states calories per serving - is this including or excluding the rice?

If the 'sauce' isn't thickening, just use a half teaspoon of butter melted in the microwave for 10 seconds, then add a teaspoon of flour, mix well until it is a paste, then stir gradually into the sauce on a gentle heat until it thickens. Aside from not thickening, this is absolutely delicious.

This recipe has a lot of potential but I agree with other users, needs a bit of adding to make it great. I added a lot more onion and cut it into strips not fine. I felt that a tbsp of paprika was too much, would add 2 tsp instead next time. Would recommend chopping the mushrooms rather thick as they cook down a lot. I then used créme fraîche rather than sour cream and finally added a good tbsp of wholegrain mustard to give it a bit of a kick.

I like to add a sploosh of red wine to this recipe (in with the stock) and crème fraîche instead of cream to give it a hearty richness. I also sauté courgettes along with the onions which helps to bulk this meal up and give it some depth in texture, which makes a super-wholesome meal.

I use creme fraiche instead of sour cream as I think it maked it taste nicer but absolutely love this recipe! I also use just plain rice to cut down my costs a bit more too

Use red wine and tomato paste for extra depth of flavour, and add low-fat Greek yoghurt at the end of cooking instead of using creme fraiche.
