Three Mushroom Stroganoff

9 Oct Three Mushroom Stroganoff

Beef stroganoff was one of the first recipes I tried as a young woman living on my own. It failed pretty miserably and was only deemed “okay…but too sour” by my then-boyfriend. Since then, I’ve improved my recipe and gone vegan. This dish is even more delicious due to my addition of extra mushrooms in the vegan version.

Thanksgiving Pizza

8 Dec

Last night, Ken and I held our Second Annual Second Thanksgiving, which is completely unofficial and occurs at random. Usually there’s an abundance of post-thanksgiving products in stores and we take the opportunity to have our own, personal thanksgiving. This year we tried the new Gardein Holiday roast on both of our Thanksgivings. The second time around I drizzled extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar on top, which gave it more flavor and moisture. We also had onion flowers (will be doing a post on that soon), mashed potatoes with almond milk and Earth Balance, and cranberry sauce.

Vegan Pad See Ew

11 Nov Vegan Pad See ew

There’s a period of time every week where I get a craving for Thai food. However, most Thai restaurants cook with oyster sauce and fish sauce, which makes trying to order vegan complicated. I realize it’s hard on the wait staff and sometimes they don’t know if the sauces are premixed or added during cooking, so it’s easier to cook it myself. It’s also much cheaper!

I’ve found an Asian grocery store in Springfield that orders all the fresh noodles for the Thai restaurants in the area. However, if I don’t go on Friday, they’re usually already gone. I like to use these for Pad Thai and Drunken Noodles (Pad Kee Mao) as well. If you can’t find them, extra large rice noodles will work just as well.
