Mushroom Stroganoff- The Ultimate Comfort Food!
If it's comfort food you want, you found it. Let me rephrase that. I found it and I am sharing it with you.
This is delicious, vegan comfort food at its best from Mouthwatering Vegan: Stroganoff Supreme.
I would serve this over cooked whole grain noodles or steamed brown rice.
This meal is a bit of an indulgence because it gets its richness from cream. It's vegan cream (meaning no animal fat or animal products) but there is still some considerable fat in this dish.
Here's my thinking on all that:
If your daily diet is primarily lean protein, whole grains, and lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, then it's perfectly fine to eat a meal thatis a bit rich now and then, even if you are trying to lose weight. Eating should be pleasurable, not boring; and never, ever about denial. This is the key to success in weight loss and healthy living.
Another note: this recipe calls for Ground Mixed Spice. Here's how to make it.
