A recipe for everyone*

*Except mushroom haters, but then, I’ve never really understood you, I would say stop reading now.

You can’t make everyone happy all the time, but every now and again you can, at least with a recipe. So whatever your food choices are (paleo, vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, 5:2, South Beach, etc. etc.) and even if you only have twenty minutes on your hands, make this!

There are very recipes that check every box, but this mushroom stroganoff really does, even meat eaters won’t mind it. Not that it matters, but each serving only comes in a 159 calories, throw a small baked sweet potato into the mix and you have a nutritious and filling meal, that is lean and yum! (Perfect for people on the 5:2 diet.)

It goes really well with chicken or fish (low carb, paleo, etc. etc), rice or pasta, and you can make a massive batch of it and freeze it for when you want a comforting meal.
