Substitute for Sour Cream

You can substitute sour cream with Greek yogurt. Full-fat Greek yogurt works the best.

Tips & Recipe Notes

Before you get started, here are a few tips and notes worth mentioning:

  • Use good quality full-fat sour cream. It’s going to taste good and less likely to curdle.
  • To avoid curdling, stir in the sour cream off heat or keep the pan on the stove and add the sour cream while stirring constantly. Make sure not to boil it!
  • I like baby bellas but white mushrooms work too.
  • Taste and season the sauce as you go.
  • Serve sauce over noodles instead of mixing both together. Otherwise, the noodles soak up all of the sauce. Store leftovers separately in airtight containers.

How to Make Ground Turkey Stroganoff Recipe

In a large non-stick skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add onions and mushrooms. Cook until browned, about 7-10 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove to a plate.
