This week, Daren is doing a meat-free week, which he is a bit skeptical about. So Keri Miller stepped in and has been putting together the recipes - she is a pretty good cook in general!

Today he shares the Denny Lovato recipe, which is a meat-free Stroganoff made with mushrooms.


• 1 tbsp oil

• 1 medium onion, diced

• 4 cloves garlic, minced

• 500 g mushrooms, sliced or diced

• 1 tsp smoked paprika

• 70 ml vegetable stock

• 2 tbsp sour cream

• Salt

• Black pepper

• 4 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped


1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan or wok, and add the onion. Cook for a few minutes over medium heat, until slightly softened. Add the garlic and sliced mushrooms, and cook for a further five minutes, or until the mushrooms are thoroughly cooked.

2. Coat the mushrooms in the smoked paprika, then add the vegetable stock and sour cream. Bring to a gentle simmer, and cook until the mixture has come together into a silky sauce.

3. Season to taste, and serve topped with plenty of fresh parsley on a bed of rice or pasta.

This recipe is very easy to pull off and it’s a lot cheaper than a meat-based dish. You don’t have to completely take out the meat from your entire diet but start small and make sure you get enough protein from other sources.

Today's tip: Make a shopping list with pre-planned meals and don't go shopping when you are hungry.
