My son is going through a really picky food texture phase. With toddlers, it seems like one day they love a certain food and the next day it is the worst thing they have ever tasted. While most kids love plain noodles and mac n cheese, Noah shudders like I just fed him a worm or something. Come to think of it, he would probably enjoy a worm more.
So the other night I was making dinner and decided to do something a little differently. Instead of using noodles for my beef stroganoff, I lightly sauteed some noodles crafted out of sweet potatoes. They cook rather quickly and still have a nice little crunch, so it feels like a noodle, but with a slightly different texture. It was an instant hit. You can make your own at home using a SPIRILIZER, or many grocery chains sell them pre-spiraled in the produce section for those days when you just need fast and easy.
Lately he hasn’t been into sweet potatoes, and they are soooooo full of nutrients so I felt like this was a huge mom win in the healthy eating category. It’s such a great healthy meal alternative for adults too because this recipe for Skinny Beef Stroganoff replaces some of the traditional unhealthy ingredients like sour cream with a protein packed yogurt, and fatty cuts of beef for a leaner, grass fed ground beef. It is gluten free and low carb too! And like most Moms, I love that it is ready to eat in 30 minutes or less. Skinny Beef Stroganoff is where it’s at!

With much love from my table to yours,
Skinny Beef Stroganoff
- 1 lb lean grass fed beef
- 2 celery stalks with leaves, diced
- 1 whole leek rinsed well and diced
- 6 oz portabello mushrooms chopped
- 1.5 cups organic beef broth
- 1/2 cup red wine
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 cup Plain low fat yogurt I used Siggy's
- 4 cups Sweet Potato Noodles
- 2 tsp olive oil
- fresh chopped parsley for garnish
Brown beef in a large saucepan of cast iron skillet over medium high heat, about 5 min. Add celery, leek and mushroom and cook another 5-8 min, or until veggies are tender. Add beef broth, red wine and salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 10-15 min. While beef mixture is cooking, saute sweet potato noodles for 2-3 min in olive oil over medium heat. Add 2 tbsp water to help steam and cook another minute or until noodles start to soften, but retain their crunch (like an al dente noodle).
Right before serving, remove beef mixture from heat and stir in yogurt. Serve warm topped with fresh chopped parsley.
