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.

“When it comes to vegetable alternatives to meat, for many people tofu comes immediately to mind, but you can also make a juicy ‘steak’ from ordinary wheat: thanks to seitan.”
