Am I ever full. I whipped up this mushroom stroganoff from La Dolce Vegan for dinner tonight. Mm mm good. I don't believe I've ever had stroganoff before but I found this little definition from wikipedia (gotta love it):
Beef Stroganoff although now commonly served continentally, has its roots in Russia. The recipe developed as the result of a St. Petersburg cooking competition in the 1890s. The recipe was prize-winning and was consequently named after the Stroganov family that the chef was working for. The recipe traditionally includes beef cubes, mushrooms, and sour cream. Usually served over noodles or rice.
So I'm guessing this recipe was similar. It has seitan beef cubes (seen on the right hand side of the plate picture), and mushrooms. Instead of sourcream the sauce was made with silken tofu and soymilk...although, I'm sure one could make vegan stroganoff with Tofutti Sour cream. That would be awesome, considering I'm addicted to the stuff! If anyone out there already has that kind of recipe or is up to the challenge, do tell! Anyways, the sauce was great. It was pretty subtle, with the taste of parsley and pepper really helping it out. I served it with whole wheat rotini because I don't have any fettucinne, with a side of green beans, and it was superb. The recipe made lots, so I'll have some leftovers for dinner tomorrow and possibly Saturday.
Normally, a dinner this great, I'd be going back for seconds. But I decided not to. Its all part of the plan to have my clothes fit again ;)
