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 :)


-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!)


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.
