BEEF STROGANOFF // the healthy version // dinner recipe


here's the thing about me in the kitchen: i have a tendency to wing it. any recipe you're likely to find on this blog will be about the farthest thing from precise measuring than you can get. and that's probably why this isn't a food blog.

nonetheless i still love to share the occasional food post when i create something tasty in the kitchen. i especially love putting a healthy twist on an old favourite, like beef stroganoff for instance. nothing says childhood dinners like hamburger helper! but i cringe at the thought of all those additives and artificial everythings that must have been in those boxes. and i don't know about you, but my body craves more than just beef and noodles, i need me some veggies.

so was born this veggie filled healthier version of beef stroganoff! for a warm and filling comfort food feel, give it a try and let me know what you think!


Beef Stroganoff with Vegetables

ingredients:

  • olive oil
  • med-small onion
  • minced garlic
  • pack of ground beef/game meat
  • about a tsp of paprika
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbs of flour
  • broccoli florets
  • chopped asparagus
  • chopped red pepper
  • about 4 cups of beef broth
  • about 2 cups of pasta
  • about 3/4 cup plain greek yogurt
  • (optional) fresh parsley

step one:
throw your chopped onion and garlic into a big pot or dutch oven with some olive oil and heat on medium-highish. after a few minutes add your ground beef and stir well.

step two:
place your chopped asparagus and broccoli florets into a pot with about an inch or little less of water. put the lid on and heat on high for about 5 minutes. 

step three:
once your beef is nice and brown, sprinkle in the flour, paprika and salt and pepper, stir well. then add your broth and pasta.

step four:
after your broccoli and asparagus have been cooking for about 5 minutes, add the chopped red pepper and cook for another 4 minutes or until your veggies are cooked to your liking.

step five:
once the pasta is cooked, mix in the greek yogurt and mix well. you can add more salt and pepper here if you like. next you'll gently stir in your steamed veggies and you're ready to eat!

serve steaming hot and garnish with fresh parsley!


and because of how healthy the strog' was, i paired it with a perfectly unhealthy pretzel bun, hah!
