Tip of Stefano:

Vegan variant of the classic: steak with creamy mushroom sauce.

A steak with a mushroom and cream sauce is a true classic dish. The sauce will never disappoint and is open to many variations. In this recipe we use seitan instead of beef and the creamy mushroom sauce is a variation that is lactose-free and completely vegan, as it uses cashew nuts, giving it its creamy taste. The cashew nuts are barely discernible in the cream. The seitan and this vegan mushroom sauce make the dish a totally vegan meal.

Variations on mushroom sauce include mustard and balsamic vinegar

If you’d like a variation on the mushroom sauce, you can add a little balsamic vinegar like in this recipe, or you can add delicious herbs such as flat leaf parsley or rosemary, which go very well with the dish. For example, stir a spoonful of mustard into the sauce if you want it to have a little more bite or add some soya sauce for a more salty flavour.

At the age of 33 he was going with all guns blazing, but he didn't spare a thought for his own health - he smoked, drank a lot, worked up to 16 hours a day and drank around two litres of coffee daily. Then he developed two serious hernias, as well as being very overweight. He realised that he could not continue this way and decided on a complete turnaround. He quit drinking and smoking and slowly changed his diet, until he finally went almost completely vegan.Vegan, a step further than vegetarian Stefano's recipes are all vegan.
