Engine 2 Mushroom Stroganoff

Engine 2 Recipe

You know, I've never been a fan of mushrooms. They always creeped me out! But I have been trying more oil free recipes, and wanting to get outside my comfort zone when it comes to veggies!

I decided to go with this Engine 2 Mushroom Stroganoff. I found it on Engine2Diet.com under the Dinner recipes. I modified it a little bit, so here are the ingredients you will need :)

Ingredients:

-1 large yellow onion, chopped
-8 ounces crimini mushrooms, sliced
-8 ounces white mushrooms, sliced
-4 cloves garlic, minced
-4 tbsp whole wheat flour
-3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
-1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (calls for soy but I love almond)
-1 container Zoodles (I get mine precut at Whole Foods!)

Instructions:

First, prep all your veggies! It really doesn't take that long. In total this recipe took about 30 minutes, and it was supposed to yield 4 servings, but it was more like 3 since my boyfriend enjoyed it too! :)

Zoodle Recipe

First up: cook those zoodles! For my fave recipe, click here or simply spray a pan with coconut oil spray (unless you can find an oil-free way to make them...in that case I'd love to know too!) and just cook them evenly for a few minutes. 

Next up, let's make the Mushroom Stroganoff!

Get a large non-stick pan and cook the onion on high heat for about 3 minutes. You don't need oil, onions have their own juices! After about 3 minutes, add the garlic and shrooms! Once the mushrooms begin to release their juices (trust me this happens pretty quickly!), sprinkle the flour over the mixture. Stir non-stop until it's mixed in. I would recommend using a whisk because the flour kept getting stuck to the tongs!

Next add the vinegar and almond milk. I accidentally used vanilla--just get the normal unsweetened almond milk or else you'll have a little tang of vanilla (not too bad though!).

Keep stirring the mixture until it thickens. You can add thyme but I didn't have it. 

Oil Free Vegan Recipe



Serve over your beautiful zoodles. Ta da! No carb-heavy pasta--just veggies on veggies! :)

Does this look good to you? It's super simple and very healthy!

  1. I cooked my zoodles in veggie stock, no oil. I also threw in a couple of small shallots, chopped. This is YUMMY!!! Thank you for sharing.
