A fast, favorite food of ours is Mushroom Gravy and Rice. When the kids were young this made its way to our table often. I usually have cooked, brown rice in the refrigerator and use it frequently when putting a hasty meal together. Mushroom Gravy and Rice is so simple, I don’t really even have a recipe for it. I just saute sliced mushrooms in a little olive oil, some onion, some garlic, maybe a few slices of roasted peppers, whatever I have on hand so it is rarely the same twice. I add some basil, dillweed, a bit of fresh ground nutmeg, and sage along with about 3/4 cup stock. Then the magic happens. To make a sweet, creamy sauce I simply add a cup of Soy Milk Creamer. It is a bit sweet, has no saturated fat, and thickens to a beautiful sauce after just a few minutes of gentle simmering. It works as a sauce for vegetables and chicken. It is equally good served with rice, potatoes, or a pasta. If you have Oven Meatballs in the freezer, these too are complimented by the sauce. Soy milk creamer freezes great. Try it!
