As much as I enjoy spending time in the kitchen, busy schedules usually mean that I need to choose meals that don’t take too much time to prepare.
Most nights I’ve got hungry kids hovering as I rush to get dinner done.
I often turn to time saving one pot meals that can be prepared quickly and served in a bowl.
This helps me get dinner on the table faster and also makes clean up a lot easier.
Whether you are a strict vegetarian or someone who has occasional vegetarian meals by participating in Meatless Monday or simply reducing meat consumption, there is no need to do without flavor.
I’m a vegetarian and my family eats meat.
Sometimes I serve them meat on the side, but with protein rich meals like this pumpkin stew they are perfectly satisfied with a meat-free meal.
Cacique Crema Mexicana is something I recently discovered.
I had incorrectly assumed that it was a sour cream, but it isn’t.
This is a rich and thick table cream that doesn’t have any sourness to it at all.
It blends in with this stew perfectly giving it a creamy texture and the delicious flavor of dairy.
The Vegetarian Pumpkin Stew was an instant favorite in my house.
I love how easy it is to make something that is nutritious and satisfying.
