One Pot Mushroom Stroganoff Pasta

  • Total Time: 23 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x


Units Scale
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 brown onion, finely chopped
  • 400 g mushrooms, sliced
  • 400 g tin lentils
  • 750 ml beef stock
  • 240 ml lite coconut milk
  • 300 g pasta spirals
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 2 large cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tbsp plain flour
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1/4 cup parsley leaves, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese to serve (optional)


  1. In a wide saucepan/wok, heat the olive oil on a medium/high heat and add the onions. Saute for 3 minutes or until they start to soften and lightly brown.
  2. Add the mushrooms, lentils stock, coconut milk, pasta, paprika and garlic and bring to the boil. Add a generous crack of fresh black pepper and stir thoroughly and ensure the pasta is immersed in the liquid. Cover with a lid and cook for 13-15 minutes or until the pasta is al-dente.
  3. Remove the lid, add the flour and lemon juice and stir well for an additional 1-2 mins or so until the liquid has mostly evaporated. Serve with chopped parsley and optional parmesan cheese.


Dairy-free option: Skip the parmesan or use vegan cheese instead. It’s important to make sure the pasta is immersed in the liquid here – if it looks like you don’t have enough liquid to cover the pasta, you can add a bit more stock but you may need to ensure it cooks off before serving.
