After posting the Beef Stroganoff I searched for a vegetarian version and came across this recipe for a One Pot Mushroom Stroganoff on Epicurious.com. It is made in much the same way, saute the mushrooms and onion over a full compliment of coals, add the liquid and noodles then at the last minute stir in the baby spinach and sour cream. It is rich and full bodied and you'll never miss the beef. I halved the original recipe to make it in my 10 inch dutch oven, if you're making this in your 12 inch dutch oven, double everything but the sour cream. It only took 25 minutes to make and it cooked with about 16 coals under the bottom and 18 on the lid. Use fresh dill if you can get it, it really brightens the dish. If you're a Vegan, skip the sour cream, it would still be pretty tasty without it.
