If you need to drop a little weight this is the perfect choice at a negligible 126 kcals per serving. It's really tasty and fairly filling too, in spite of the calorie count. If you're greedy like me, add a side salad or some pre-dinner crudites.

Mushroom stroganoff with Cauliflower Rice (serves 4)

126 calories per serving


  • 1tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 celery sticks, thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 600g mixed mushrooms, chopped
  • 2tsp smoked paprika
  • 250ml vegetable stock
  • 150ml Crème Fraiche (light)  
  • Pepper
  • 1 Cauliflower (white only), coarsely grated


1. Heat the oil in a nonstick frying pan. Add the onion, celery and garlic and cook for 5 mins or until beginning to soften. Add the mushrooms and paprika and cook for a further 5 minutes.

2. Pour in the stock and cook for a further 10 mins or until the liquid is reduced by half.

3. Meanwhile put the grated cauliflower into a steam bag or steamer and microwave for 2 mins.

4. Stir in the crème fraiche into the cooked mushrooms and season with pepper. Cook over a medium heat for 5 mins. Serve the mushroom stroganoff over the cauliflower rice immediately.
