Paleo Beef Stroganoff (Whole30, Keto)

Paleo Beef Stroganoff made dairy-free, quickly, and easily. A delicious staple to add to your weeknight meal plan!

Have you ever basked in the glory of beef stroganoff? 

If you’ve never tried it, just picture tender beef stewed in a tangy creamy sauce served on top of delicious buttery carbs. Sound appealing? Just you wait…

What is Beef Stroganoff?:

Beef Stroganoff (or beef Stroganov) is a classic Russian meal of pan-sauteed  beef in a mustard-broth-cream sauce. Traditionally, the recipe is made without onions or mushrooms, but the dish has taken on many variations to include tomato paste, onions, mushrooms, sugar, sour cream, and/or a combination thereof. Beef stroganoff is typically served with wide egg noodles or rice. 

How to Make Beef Stroganoff Dairy-Free:

For those of you who are sensitive to dairy, lactose intolerant, or simply try to limit your dairy intake, you can still enjoy marvelous beef stroganoff without the dairy! The combination of coconut cream (the thick portion that solidifies at the top of a can of coconut milk) and lemon juice has the same consistency and nearly the same flavor of sour cream or buttermilk. 

You can source coconut cream in a couple of ways. First, you can buy a can of coconut cream from the store or online, as there are many brands who sell it. As an alternative, you can buy 1 can of regular full-fat coconut milk and refrigerate it overnight (this is if you keep your house warm and your coconut milk is typically assimilated when you open it. After refrigerating the coconut milk, simply open it and scoop out the thick coconut cream. You can use the water at the bottom for smoothies or other recipes.

My house stays cool and I live in a cool climate, so my coconut milk is often already separated into cream and water when I open it).

If you don’t like the taste of coconut milk, or if you’re worried the replacement will make the meal taste inauthentic, don’t fret! It is truly indistinguishable once all of the flavors come together in the dish. 

Let’s talk preparation! While there are several steps to preparing this recipe, the process itself is simple and goes very quickly!

Thai Tom Kha Gai (Paleo, Keto)

Thai Tom Kha Gai -a coconut milk soup with mushrooms, chicken, ginger and lemongrass. This quick and easy recipe makes a satisfying, clean and delicious meal.

Tom Kha Gai is a traditional Thai soup made with coconut milk, mushrooms, chicken, lemongrass, ginger, and kaffir lime leaves. It’s creamy, tangy, and has a slight kick to it for a belly-warming cozy soup that covers all the flavor bases.

Thai food is my ultimate comfort food, and making it at home is one of my most coveted rituals. I love the way my home smells while I’m cooking, and enjoy the combination of creamy, tangy, sweet flavors. I also love making Thai for friends and family, as it’s always an impressive crowd-pleaser!

This time of year, self-care, evolution and growth is on everyone’s mind. For me, wellness  means consistency. This translates to cooking nourishing meals at home using fresh whole food ingredients. I see self-care as choosing a balanced lifestyle that you’re capable of maintaining in the long term, rather than urgently making too many changes at once. 

I enjoy making traditional recipes cleaner or just a bit healthier so that I get the same satisfaction while maintaining my health goals. I also think it’s important to keep cooking fun, yet approachable. In this sense, all of the ingredients included in this recipe are those you can find at any grocery store. I find it can be difficult to track down kaffir lime leaves, so I replace them with lime zest and juice.

Pesto Burgers with Caramelized Onions and Mushrooms

Mouth-watering pesto burgers topped with caramelized onions and mushrooms are a delicious meal. Cook them up in a cast iron skillet or on your grill and serve them up on your bun of choice!

Pesto Burgers with Caramelized Onions and Mushrooms - a delicious, unique hamburger for BBQ season

When was the last time you had a really, really ridiculously good burger?

Given how frequently burgers manifest themselves in my household, I’m actually kinda-sorta shocked I don’t post recipes more often.

The secret to a good burger (IMHO) is a 3-part formula: 1.) using good quality meat, 2.) seasoning the meat well with sea salt and garlic powder and onion powder (and any other spice/herb combos), and 3.) cooking the burgers to medium-rare perfection on a cast iron skillet or grill.

In that sense, I kinda-sorta believe you only need one burger “recipe,” and then you’re set for life; however, sometimes when the inspiration strikes, I do love getting creative with my toppings and sauces, which is exactly what we have done here.
