Leftover Maven: Mushroom Stroganoff
My friends Kate and Julia are vegetarians, and I admire them. I wish I could leave meat behind. But as my daughter Christina says, beef and bacon tastes too good!
I endeavor, however, to eat less meat, and I appreciate people like Mark Bittman who has promoted eating less meat and movements like Meatless Monday.
I had some leftover caramelized onions and mushrooms from Super Bowl Sunday, and I thought they would be great in a stroganoff. I heated them in a skillet, added some broth, worcestershire sauce, paprika, and sour cream. With egg noodles, it was delectable, and I didn't miss the meat at all. And it only took 10 minutes!
