Here’s another doesn’t-take-long vegetarian supper for the lazy–I mean, busy.
- chopped onions or onion powder
- cream of mushroom soup (or make your own, if that’s how you roll)
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cube Not-Beef bouillon (non-vegetarians can use beef)
- flat noodles
Cut up mushrooms and cook with minimal stirring in a dry skillet until they’re browned and toasty. Add butter. Add onions and paprika and stir until onions are soft. Add cream of mushroom soup OR add tablespoon of flour then cup of milk or cream. Add bouillon cube and gradually stir in water until sauce is smooth and hot through.
Meanwhile, cook noodles according to package directions.
REALLY GOOD! Even my meat-loving mother likes it.
I’m way behind on where I want to be in drafting PICKLE IN A PEAR TREE. I took yesterday off to work on plot points and, thanks to my beloved and brilliant nephew, Joshua Allen (who says he was channeling Syd Field), I came up with some hooks to pull me up the slope to the climax. So I may very well catch up before the end of the month. 🙂

Hmm, sounds easy enough even for me. Thanks

Sounds good to me! The paprika is a little surprising to me. I think of it as a decoration on deviled eggs like my mother used to make.

Glad you guys like the recipe. Quick and easy is how I like ’em!
Monti, I was surprised, too, but it’s a dried ground pepper, so it has a little bite when used in enough quantity and toasting paprika really makes its flavor pop.

Didn’t know how to spell this word, the first time I heard it on tv. Now I know how to cook the dish, thanks to you. A big smile here.

If you aren’t vegetarian, you can cook ground beef after you do the onions and paprika, or leftover roast. I guess you could use any kind of meat. Shrimp stroganoff…. Uh, maybe not.
