Have you ever in your life felt so hopeless? Have you ever wanted to take away pain from someone who was suffering? I have and I never want to experience that again in my life. I’ve learned throughout the years that when someone is struggling or is dealing with an illness, the best thing we can offer is our company and friendship. Whether that comes through a meal, or cleaning, or just listening – everyone needs that sense of feeling they are human. I know for my husbands culture, ways to comfort are through food. I’m going to show you this simple cancer-friendly Mushroom Stroganoff Recipe using the most delicious egg pasta you’ve ever had and one that you can take to others and share the love.First what you want to do is reconstitute the Mushroom Bistro Blend in some hot beef stock. Stroganoff has a delicious, deep beef flavor but I wanted to create the texture and taste without the red meat so that we can cut out that probability of developing cancer from it. The pasta dish is full of flavor and feel free to add additional spices that fit your taste-buds.I boiled the Egg Pasta for 8-minutes so that I could achieve that perfect al-dente feel against the chew of the Bistro Mushroom Blend. Next you’ll slice your medium onion and place that into a 10-inch saute pan with 2 tbsp. of butter. Drain your mushrooms but keep the stock for later. Add the mushrooms to your onions and cook for an additional 10-minutes.In a separate bowl, place 1/2 cup stock with your flour, worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper and add that to your mushroom mixture. Allow the flour to cook out and then add 1/2 cup to 1 cup of the reserved stock and boil the mix for an additional 1-minute. Take your pan off the heat and add your sour cream and stir. Taste and season it with your favorite spices however you’d like. Plate your noodles and add the Mushroom Stroganoff on top and serve hot. Add some sliced green onions or parsley for color.
The main reason why I make this meal to serve others who are sick are because I know some strong women who have dealt with too much in their life and they’ve lived to tell their story about how they survived. Not everyone in that situation is as lucky as they were but it does take some diligence on our part. My grandmother and aunt are both survivors of breast cancer and they’re survivors because they did mammograms early and before they felt any lumps.
It’s up to us as women to be diligent about our own health. Women have a nurturing tendency so it’s often seen that they’ll take care of others before themselves. We need to be the change in that because if we don’t take care of ourselves, how can we be around for others? Eat healthy, exercise, do all the things we know we should do actually do them and succeed at it. Do it with me so that we can live long lives together and shower our stories on our families.
