in recipes

you hear the word “stroganoff” and you immediately think things like “unhealthy” or “fattening” or “super caloric”… not the case with this recipe. this takes clean eating to a comfort food level and i am super stoked about it. plus, it’s fairly quick and super simple.. that’s the best kind of recipe! oh, and PS, marshall isn’t a fan of mushrooms but he LOVED this! you could always leave them out.. but i promise.. it doesn’t taste “mushroom-y.”

i found these dried wild mushrooms at trader joe’s for super cheap! i used two packages for the recipe. you could easily sub in fresh mushrooms, but i recommend finding dried wild mushrooms like these.

This looks yummy. Will definitely make this. Thanks for sharing

This looks AMAZING. I’m not doing meat & dairy right now, but this looks like I could easily make it with just ‘shrooms, and soy cream. Totally trying this soon. Yum!
This is absolutely my kind of comfort food… like something my mom would make when I was a kid!

I make a similar version – it’s so good and an awesome take on a childhood favourite. I don’t like mushrooms raw, but cooked I’m a big fan!

Andrea@WellnessNotes November 6, 2013 at 7:46 am

I love mushrooms, and this sounds delicious!

I read your earlier post about following an exercise and eating plan that’s right for you, and I just wanted to say I couldn’t agree more. Glad you are doing what works for you! It’s so easy to want to do what others are doing without really questioning if that’s the right choice for you. I’ve certainly been there!

Ummm, I’m so into this. NICE!

Krissie J @ Philly Nerd Girl November 6, 2013 at 9:52 am

I do not get along with mushrooms. Ick.

Comfort food to me is a big pot o’ chili, which I made last week. Loooove. :)

Suzanne November 6, 2013 at 10:06 am

This looks really good!

1. Mashed potatoes.
2. Not usually. But if they are cooked and in with other stuff they don’t bother me. I would probably be able to eat this without any problems. Yep, I’m a weirdo.

I made Beef Stroganoff last night! It’s one of my boyfriend’s favorites, so I’ll have to try this recipe next time.

Mac ‘n’ cheese is definitely a comfort food for me, probably because I ate it so much as a kid — but never got sick of it!! I actually don’t like mushrooms, but I sometimes try to eat stroganoff anyways.

love a simple and healthy dinner!

I’ve been out of the loops for a few months and just caught up on your posts – so much has happened! First, you’re looking great! Second, so sorry to hear about the seizure… I had the same test done over the summer and thankfully I was not part of that small group of women who experience excruciating pain. Gah, I cannot even begin to imagine. But glad to hear that your results all were good!

My husband loves stroganoff….but I don’t like mushrooms. Hah. But this looks easy & simple!

Nicole @ FruitnFitness November 6, 2013 at 9:15 pm

I love mushrooms and this sounds like a great way to make them in a healthy pasta sauce.

elaine c. November 7, 2013 at 2:18 am

i absolutely love mushrooms. like, i always double the mushrooms on pizza orders and/or pick them off other people’s slices.

and comfort food is essentially anything homemade and warm :)

natalie@thesweetslife November 10, 2013 at 8:59 pm
