Sometimes I just want old school comfort food. But, I want it as healthy as possible. Using grass fed beef, mushrooms, zucchini and fresh spinach, this dish is much lower in calories and fat than most stroganoff dishes. I used organic sour cream but it would be great with coconut milk or almond based creams as well. It must be thick! Use gluten free noodles for a gluten free option. Season it up as much as you want to your liking but the smoked paprika is an absolute must. Don't skimp! If you don't like mushrooms, you won't be making this dish. It isn't stroganoff without them.
1 1 /2 pounds grass fed hamburger
1/2 cup diced onion
1 1/2 C. chopped zucchini (any size chunk desired)
1 T. minced garlic
1/2 lb. sliced or chopped, fresh mushrooms
2 C. sour cream or substitute cream
2 t. or more smoked paprika (I love Spice Hunters brand)
fresh spinach, chopped
pasta of choice
Cook noodles per package and set aside. In a skillet, brown the onions, hamburger and garlic till the meat is almost done. Add in the mushrooms, zucchini, smoked paprika, salt and pepper and cook until the veggies are tender. Add more paprika, salt and pepper as desired. When the meat and veggies are cooked, turn the heat to low and stir in the sour cream. Add more salt and pepper if needed with the sour cream added. Toss in the noodles. Around 4-5 cups cooked or as desired. Top with chopped spinach and serve.
