2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep the vegetables

  • Peel and finely chop enough onion to measure ½ cup [1 cup].
  • Using a fork or the side of a knife, gently mash the roasted garlic into a paste. 
  • Lay the zucchini flat. Trim and discard the round end. Holding the stem end secure, using a peeler, shave the zucchini lengthwise into thin ribbons. Pat dry with a paper towel.


Prep and start cooking your protein

  • Steak, chicken, or pork strips: Cut a small corner from the packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer the meat to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper. 
  • Shrimp or scallops: Rinse and drain the shrimp or scallops. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
  • Tofu: Pat the tofu dry with paper towels; cut into ½-inch cubes. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Plant-based chicken: Pat the plant-based chicken dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper.

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon oil until hot but not smoking. Add your protein and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 1 to 3 minutes for shrimp; 2 to 4 minutes for scallops, steak, pork, tofu, or plant-based chicken; and 3 to 5 minutes for chicken. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan. 


Cook the stroganoff

  • In a small bowl, using a fork, mix together the mushroom stroganoff blend and vegetable broth.

In the same pan used for your protein, if dry, add 2 to 3 teaspoons oil. Warm over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Add the onion and roasted garlic, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is softened and starting to brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir the mushroom stroganoff mixture to recombine, add to the pan, and bring to a boil for 10 seconds, then reduce to a simmer and cook until starting to thicken, 3 to 4 minutes.

Add your protein and any accumulated juices and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Working in batches if needed, stir in the spinach and cook until just wilted and your protein is cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. When the stroganoff is almost done, finish the zucchini “noodles.”


Cook the zucchini “noodles”

In another large frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Stir in the zucchini “noodles,” season with salt and pepper, and cook until crisp-tender, 1 to 2 minutes.


Transfer the zucchini “noodles” to individual plates, top with the stroganoff, and serve.
