How to Make Mushroom Stew

This is a very easy and delicious recipe that you’re going to love. Here’s how to make it:

  • Heat oil in amedium-sizedpot. Sauté the onion on medium heat until they’re soft and translucent.
  • Add the diced carrots and cook for a couple of minutes.
  • Then, add minced garlic and cook for one minute until it’s fragrant and golden.
  • Add flour and mix well. The mixture will become sticky and that’s exactly how you want it to be.
  • Then add sliced mushroom and tomatoes and cook for 2-3 minutes.

  • Have a taste, and adjust the seasonings to your preference.I recommend that you use reduced-sodium soy sauce and might need to add a little bit of salt, but if you’re using regular soy sauce, then it will probably be salty enough.

  • Serve warm over vegan mashed potatoes, sweet mashed potatoes, quinoa, rice, or with warmed up naan bread. Garnish with fresh parsley for color.

What Kind of Mushrooms Can I Use?

I used chestnut/cremini mushrooms to make this, but feel free to use any kind of mushrooms that you like. I’ve used button mushrooms in the past, and sh*take mushrooms also work great.

If you would also like to add dried porcini mushrooms or any type of wild mushrooms, make sure that you soak them in water for at least 30 minutes prior to cooking.

Can I Add More Veg or Beans to This Recipe?

You sure can. Add diced potatoes, sweet potatoes, celery, or even beans like kidney beans, chickpeas, black beans. This mushroom stew is so versatile and can be easily adjusted to what you like best.

How to Make This Gluten-Free?

The only ingredient that contains gluten in this recipe is flour. Substitute it with corn starch and that will make the dish gluten-free.

    Tasty. I had to cook the carrots longer to make them soft and add more flour so the sauce was not too liquid. But will make again. Thanks!!!


    • Nourish Plate says

      Glad to hear you made it work and enjoyed it!


  2. Cindy Dennis says

    Can you use chicken or beef broth and add meat?


    • Nourish Plate says

      I haven’t tried that myself, but I don’t see why not.


    • Nourish Plate says

      Depends on the portion size and what you’re serving with, but it’s 4 small-ish portions or 2 larger ones.

    It was tasty! I added pink Himalayan salt and a dash of red pepper flakes and it was great!

    this was so delicious!! The soy really brought out the flavor of the mushrooms. I used baby bella and white button mushrooms and served over garlic mashed potatoes. Great fall recipe, a new staple 🙂

    Delicious!!! This was amazing! I used cremini mushrooms since that’s all I had. I omitted the tomatoes because hubby can’t eat them and used beef stock. Will definitely be making this again!!


  7. Sheri says

    We loved this soup, it was delicious. I was glad I doubled the recipe so we had leftovers. Serving it over mashed potatoes was a really great choice. We’ll definitely be making this again.

      Sorry, I’m not sure how many cups, but for me, it makes about 4 (not so large) servings.

    I actually grated the onion and carrots so kiddo wouldn’t notice. I also used coco aminos in place of soy. Made a lot! Tomorrow I will add venison to the left overs and it will be delicious. It’s already delicious!!
