Lucky for you, it can be made gluten free simply by choosing a gluten free pasta. Steamed potatoes and raw cashews are the key to make this sauce thick and ultra creamy without the need for flour.
If you would like a lower fat version of this vegan mushroom stroganoff (and nut-free), you can use cooked white beans instead of cashews. If you choose this alternative, you will need to use less dairy-free milk.
This creamy mushroom pasta is a satisfying plant based meal that everyone will enjoy. Try this vegan recipe for your next weeknight dinner or make it as a healthy meal prep for the week.
One more tip before we get to the vegan mushroom stroganoff recipe: if you do not have a high speed blender like a Vitamix, Blendtec, or Ninja, you should soak the cashews for a few hours or over night to soften them. This will make it easier to blend the cashews into a creamy consistency without a fancy expensive blender.

Add the dairy-free milk, cashews, nutritional yeast, apple cider vinegar, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper to a blender and blend on high until creamy.
