Tobinambur and Mushroons Stroganoff

Last Topinambur recipe is here and Yes, we have vegan stroganoff!

The original stroganoff recipe is Russian but it became so popular in Brazil, I can bet many Brazilians believe it’s a national dish! It’s true that the original recipe changed a lot  in tropical land but it is still delicious!

In my plant based version, I make even more changes to make it healthier but still incredibly tasty!

I served my Strogonoff with some hasselback potatoes and topped with some vegan fresh cream(vegan yogurt also works) . If you also want to enjoy yours with roasted potatoes just roast them at the same time then the other veggies, in a separated tray. You can also enjoy this amazing Russian inspired Plant Based Recipe with whole grain rice, quinoa or pasta.
