What do you do when a craving for something creamy and hearty like beef stroganoff hits you, and you’re allergic to dairy, lactose-intolerant, gluten-intolerant and/or you eat a paleo diet? I have an easy answer for you: you make this easy Paleo Gluten-Free Zucchini Noodle Stroganoff! This beef stroganoff re-make uses grass-fed beef or bison, zucchini noodles, mushrooms and a creamy, satisfying sauce. Bonus: it requires only one pan!
In all of my dairy-free remakes, sour cream has been one of the toughest nuts to crack. Nothing tastes exactly like it, and I don’t like the store-bought options. I’ve tried using a coconut milk plain greek yogurt as a base, but I thought it was too runny, and it didn’t hit the mark on taste as much as I had hoped. For this beef stroganoff re-make, in place of the sour cream typically used, I made a dairy-free version using coconut milk, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice and a little salt. If I were serving it on its own, I’d whip it with a free standing mixer or handheld mixer, but because it gets mixed in and disappears into this dish, whisking it is enough. If it’s a little lumpy, no worries – that will disappear as it melts and blends with the other ingredients.
Zucchini noodles can be bought ready-to-go OR you can make them super fast and easy yourself with a spiralizer. It takes no time to spin the handle and create a plate of lovely zucchini noodles! I LOVE my spiralizer – it’s easy to use and easy to clean.
This paleo gluten-free zucchini noodle stroganoff has become one of my favorite meals (it’s one of my daughter’s favs too). Lower carb meals often leave me hungry an hour or two later, but this one has more staying power. And if I want seconds? I feel no guilt in filling up my bowl again!
Pin it/save it and make it! Feel free to leave me a comment if you do (that makes my day!) And if you have a favorite comfort food you’d like me to try to re-make paleo, gluten-free and/or-dairy-free, let me know. I always love that kind of challenge!
