Beef-Less Stroganoff

I can't bring myself to work on homework tonight.  It's 9:00, I had a long day at work, I have a full belly from dinner (I'll share tonight's recipe with you later), and it's the season premiere of So You Think You Can Dance!  Just when I say "this is the best season yet", another season starts and I sound like a broken record.  Matt's been hearing a lot of "Wow!", "Whoa!", "What the what?!", "Did you see that?", and "He is GOOD" tonight...and the broken record begins.

So while I'm being blown away by some amazing dancers (and kicking myself with a figurative arabesque for not sticking with something that brought me such joy) I will share a recipe with you.  I also love cooking and trying out new recipes, and I have found a great veg stroganoff recipe...Matt even said he didn't miss the meat!  I got the recipe from a great resource my mom introduced me to called E-mealz.  I haven't had the opportunity to really check out the website, but it sounds awesome.  They provide a meal plan of your choice (this one is from the Vegetarian Meal Plan) for a week, and provide a shopping list for the week from a store of your choice, including what the price will be for all your groceries.  Just click on the above link to check it out for yourself.
- Beef-Less Stroganoff -
What you need:
  • 2 T butter
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 8 oz pkg sliced mushrooms
  • 1 bag Morningstart Meal Starters
  • 1/2 C cooking sherry (I honestly don't know what the difference is between regualry sherry and "cooking sherry.  Just buy sherry, it'll be fine)
  • 1 T soy sauce
  • 1 tsp seasoned salt (Not sure what they mean by this.  I used a little salt, pepper, and garlic salt.  Use your imagination I guess.)
  • 1 C plain yogurt
  • 1 T cornstarch dissolved in cold water
  • 1 pkg egg noodles
What you do:
  • Cook egg noodles according to package directions
  • Saute onion and mushrooms in butter until soft.
  • Add meal starters, simmer 5 minutes
  • Add sherry, soy sauce, "seasoned salt" (salt, pepper, etc, to taste), simmer 5 minutes
  • Add yogurt and corn starch. 
  • Cover, cook on low for 10 min stirring occasionally.
  • Serve over cooked noodles.
I sprayed some asparagus with some olive oil spray, sprinkled with some salt and pepper and broiled for around 5-7 minutes.  To be completely honest, I have no idea how long it was.  I never time that sort of thing.  Just keep an eye on them and pull them out when they look good to you. I stick them with a fork every few minutes until they feel done, I like mine to be a bit firm still.  Wow, I would be a horrible person to write a cookbook...what vague instructions, I am sorry.
