This easy mushroom stroganoff recipe combines garlic coated mushrooms with a kick of brandy liquor for a deliciously rich combination of flavours. We love serving our mushroom and spinach stroganoff with potato rosti to soak up all the creamy sauce and provide some crunchy texture. What is not to like? Even children will find it hard to resist mushrooms and spinach when they're served with a stroganoff sauce. If you fancy making this even more special then we recommend swapping the normal mushrooms for chestnut or porcini mushrooms in this mushroom and spinach stroganoff.
