Muffin Meals

No, these meals won't be muffins but Muffin is one of my nicknames. Besides, it sounds cute! After viewing the Vegan Lunchbox site, religiously, my Husband wants me to post my own menu. I will try to post one meal each day. I hope I inspire people to have creative and healthy home cooked meals. I think that even if you aren't a vegetarian, you'll like the meals I present. I do feature dairy products and eggs in my food from time to time, but will try my best to present vegan dishes as well.

vegetable soup stroganoff...WAS vegan

Last night I made Creamy Vegetable Soup, with cauliflower, carrots, fresh off the cob corn, onions, scallions, and asparagas. Muffin Man came home and thought I had made stroganoff. He had his poor little heart set on that so badly that I told him if he made spaghetti I'd turn my soup into a stroganoff.

I'm glad I did. Muffin Man had an excellent idea and all I had to do was add some cornstarch to the soup (mixing cold soy milk and cornstarch together and boiling the soup and adding it in). I used the last 1/3 cup or so of sour cream and put that in as well, to give it the stroganoffy flavor. I'm sure you could use Sour Supreme or something in place of that.

MiniB Muffin usually isn't a big fan of gravy on foods, but she ate this up without any arguments. Maybe the idea that she could have a cookie afterwards help. MiniB Muffin and I had made Chocolate Chip Craisin cookies earlier in the day and she had been told she could have some after supper. MMM the Power of good food!
