stroganoff burrito



Time: 30 minutes
Dishes: large skillet, baking sheet, oven

Hello, hello Dear Readers!

As easy and fast as it is to make meatless, vegetarian and vegan Stroganoff (an excellent recipe is in Everyday Vegan Eats), I was ready to see if there was an even faster and easier way to make it. Instead of preparing pasta, I decided to roll it in a burrito.

Firstly, the Stroganoff is great - well-seasoned and flavorful. It is not as saucy as if making it for pasta, but, instead, it is perfect for filling a burrito. After rolling the filling in a warm tortilla (warmed so it does not break), I broiled it until the tortilla was crisp. 

The sauce is seasoned easily with my Easy Savory Broth Mix and a bit of Dijon mustard. The all-important vegan sour cream is added at the end, with the heat off. About 10 ingredients and lunch was ready in less than 30 minutes. 

The burrito was an excellent way to prepare this. I sautéed some Brussels sprouts on the side (another recipe in EVE) and served it with sliced apples. 

It was fast, filling and delicious. Note that this serves only 2 or 3 in large fajita-sized burritos. That is the way with mushrooms - it looks like a ton going into the pan and then you wonder where it all went when it comes time to fill a tortilla. Worth it, though. Very tasty.

Speedy Cooking Tips:

  • Gather ingredients.
  • Heat the pan and add the mushrooms as they are sliced.
  • Chop the onion, pepper and garlic and add as they are ready.
  • Cook on high and only stir when needed to allow the mushrooms to release their liquid and brown instead of steam.
  • Be sure to turn the heat off before adding sour cream.
  • Preheat broiler before adding the sour cream.
