    Happy new year! Did you make any New Year Resolutions? For many, the resolution will be to lead a healthier lifestyle.

    I’m all for healthy, but I’m also all for moderation and flavor. Being a food blogger, I eat some pretty amazing meals and I’m certainly not going to show up to a Top Chef restaurant and decline a plate of creamy, decadent and rich food.

    Skinny Beef Stroganoff Recipe- Fast, easy to make, beef stroganoff, that is family friendly and cuts down on calories by using yogurt instead of cream or sour cream. Added peas and spinach make this beef stroganoff THE BEST!

    But at home, I do try to make a few of meals on the lighter side without sacrificing flavor. Enter one of the world’s most famous comfort meals: Creamy Beef Stroganoff.

    Skinny Beef Stroganoff is a dish that will leave you feeling satisfied without feeling guilty. The trick is using yogurt instead of heavy or sour cream.

    I use yogurt in a lot of my dishes, like Butternut Squash Soup and Harissa Chicken Kabobs, to add creaminess and moisture without a lot of calories. It also has a slight tang that adds sophistication to the flavor profile. In fact, it can be substituted in many recipes that use sour cream or mayonnaise.

    I initially saw this recipe in Cooking Light Magazine, but felt it needed more vegetables, so I added peas and spinach. Actually, the original calls for a small amount of cream, but with the thickness of plain yogurt, I was able to omit it all together.

    The egg noodles are No Yolk, allowing me to have soul-soothing pasta with no regrets.  I hope you enjoy my Skinny Beef Stroganoff as much as I do!
