From the kitchen of our Young Professionals Board: Vegan Mushroom Stroganoff
by Destani Collins
I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio; resisting a bowl of Vegan Mushroom Stroganoff this time of year was never an option. It’s perfect after a long cold day! The warmth of the pasta, the savory sauce, the hearty mushrooms, twang of rosemary, and zest of lemon create a light juxtaposition for what is perceived to be a heavy pasta.
What’s even better is the origins of the ingredients, which don’t include any animal based products. Let me say that I do not believe it is cruel to eat animals, however I do believe our mission to sustain a flourishing and substantial environment is hindered if we do not eat mindfully. Ethically source your ingredients! Why support products that are manufactured at the expense of animal cruelty? Show your body, the environment, and local farmers some love by eating cruelty free. Resources like water and land are required for major meat production, and the immensity of those operations have a tremendously negative impact on the environment and climate change. Moderation and mindfulness allow for good food and the encouragement for animals to be raised in humane environments.
Sound good to you? Sounds good to me! Attached and with the link below you’ll find the recipe for Vegan Mushroom Stroganoff, don’t miss out on this creamy pasta goodness : )
