1 1/2 cups plus 2 T water
1 small onion, diced
1 lb cremini or button mushrooms, sliced
6-8 garlic cloves, minced
8-12 oz seitan, cut into strips or small pieces*
1 cup roasted red bell peppers, chopped
3 T unsalted tomato paste
2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1/4 cup raw cashews
1 1/2 cups cooked or canned white beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup bean cooking liquid, water, or vegetable broth
2 tsp soy sauce
12 oz fettuccine
Heat 1/2 cup of the water in a large nonstick skillet. Add the onion and cook and stir over high heat for about 5 minutes, until translucent.
Reduce the heat to medium. Stir in the mushrooms, garlic, and 2 more tablespoons of the water. Cover and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add the seitan, bell peppers, tomato paste, paprika, and pepper. Cover and cook over medium-low heat for 5 minutes.
Combine the cashews and the remaining cup of water in a blender. Process on high speed until completely smooth, about 2 minutes. Add the beans and the bean cooking liquid and process on high for about 1 minute, until completely smooth. Pour into the skillet with the mushrooms. Add the vinegar and soy sauce and stir until evenly mixed. Heat gently, adding additional water as needed, 1 tablespoon at a time, to achieve the desired consistency.
Cook the fettuccine in boiling water until just tender. Drain and rinse under cold water. Top with the mushroom mixture and serve immediately.
Stored in a covered container in the refrigerator, leftover Mushroom Stroganoff over Fettuccine will keep for up to 2 days.
