Many people who suffer from Celiac disease are also unable to digest dairy products. Luckily for us, there are more and more great tasting dairy free alternatives hitting the market everyday. My boyfriend recently brought home a new gluten free, dairy free sour cream product. I can’t tell you how excited I was(still am). It’s made from Lima beans, rice, oats, coconut oil and a few other ingredients. They definitely nailed the robust, sour taste of sour cream.
Almost every year, when the weather starts to get cooler and the days get shorter, I find myself craving stroganoff. I used to do the usual beef stroganoff, but as I am cutting down on my beef consumption, I opted for chicken instead.
My gluten and heavy cream sauce loving boyfriend had no problem finishing his dish of stroganoff, so you might even serve this to your friends. Don’t tell them it’s gluten and dairy free. They’ll never know!
