Oh friends, I’ve been cooking a lot (does it ever stop?) but I haven’t had a lot of time to post recipes, because I have been working really hard on something special for you! And a preview is coming soon. Promise!
Anywho, let’s talk whole30/paleo. Here’s a week-night meal I just made that is perfect for a cold December night. We follow a paleo-ish diet and I find myself craving comfort food especially in the winter. Am I the only one?
This is my super simple spin on beef stroganoff! It may not photograph the best and really does comfort food every look that great? Think casseroles..um no. But believe me this is comfort food at its best and it’s super healthy.
- 1 head of cauliflower
- 1 tablespoon of avocado oil
- 1 1/2 lbs of grass feed beef
- 1 1/2 cup of roughy chopped baby bella mushrooms
- 1 tablespoon of onion power (I buy the chopped onion flakes from Costco)
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 1/2 teaspoon of pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon of Italian Seasoning
- 2 1/2 tablespoons of arrow root
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil or avocado oil
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- 1 tablespoon of nutritional yeast
- 2 cups of beef bone broth
- Preheat oven to 400.
- Cut cauliflower and line on a cookie sheet.
- Drizzle with oil
- Bake for 10-15 minutes until golden.
- Brown ground beef and mushrooms
- Season meat.
- Drain meat and mushroom mixture.
- Stir in arrow root one tablespoon at a time.
- Slowly stir in the bone broth,
- Bring to a boil and simmer for five minutes.
- Blend cauliflower oil, salt, pepper, and nutrtional yeast together.
- Serve the beef over the roasted cauliflower puree
You have a lot more beef than the cauliflower mash, so either double the cauliflower or eat it over potatoes the next day for leftovers!
Kiddo tip: Remove a little of the ground beef and mushrooms before you make the sauce and also remove a few cauliflower florets before you blend them for your kids. Mine prefer it this way at least.
