Veggie Stroganoff

Hi all. Jason here. This is my first post to the New Leaf Creations' blog, and I figured I would start with one of our favorite recipes: veggie stroganoff. I made it for lunch for Jess and I yesterday. It's way easy to make and is very good. The original recipe is courtesy of Kraft foods.
Ingredients:
1/2 Large onion (or 1 small one)
1/2 Lb. of mini carrots
1 Green Pepper
3 cups water
2 bouillon cubes
8 cups wide egg noodles
8oz sliced mushrooms
8oz sour cream


Directions:
Chop the onions into slices
Chop the mini carrots and green peppers into small pieces
Chop the mushrooms into small pieces
Put some EVOO in a large skillet
Add the onions and cook over high heat until they brown
Add the water, bouillon, carrots, green peppers, and noodles
Over high heat, bring to a boil
Cover and reduce heat to medium high
Cook for 13 minutes or until water is mostly gone
Remove the lid and stir in the mushrooms
Cook for 2 minutes on medium heat
Stir in the sour cream
Cook for 2 more minutes over medium heat
Remove from heat and serve


This recipe also works well with meat if you like. Before Jess stopped eating red meat, we would chop up a pound of steak (whatever was on sale at Meijer) and cook it until it was brown with the onions.

Hope you all enjoy the veggie stroganoff. It was fun for me to share it with you (and fun for us to eat).

Lots of Love
Jason
