Mushroom Stroganoff with Asparagus Tips

0 512
I have always been a fan of Beef Stroganoff, but in honor of Meatless Mondays here is a vegetarian variation.  You can use your favorite mushroom mix: go for white button, crimini, portobello, shiitake, morel, chanterelles, morels, and/or oyster mushrooms. And as I like to spice things up a notch I top each dish with a pinch of red pepper flakes. For those meat lovers who insist…here is the link to a delicious Beef Stronganoff recipe.
