I thought something was missing since days and today the cravenness was
simply so great that I made it again : ) Yes it’s none other than my Favorite
This time I made a very healthy and simple quick dish with the freshly
bought organic Mushrooms. I made the creamy creamy cream sauce the most
favorite here in Germany called the “Rahmsoße”
I must admit I used to buy the readymade sauce packets till I discovered
what stuff they add in those packs :( Of course we learn by the passing time
and one is more and more aware and conscious of what one eats and buys. I have
changed my cooking style a lot and have established a healthy way of cooking,
of course not 100% but at least 80%. I make this tasty sauce since a long time now;
it goes so well with all roasts, fries and pasta of course.
A meal ready in less than 30 minutes!
I prepared the penne as we always do, boil, drain and steam.
Cut the fresh soft mushrooms in thin slices, always wash them shortly
before you have to cut and cook, or else they tank lots of water and become
soggy and tasteless.
Just fry them in 1 tbs of butter on a medium heat, add no salt as the
butter is salty.
Fry just half way, we don’t need to cook them, they taste delicious that
Garnish with fresh basil leaves, the Aroma is unbeatable!
Now you can make the Cream Sauce for it and this is how I make it:
*mix the flour slowly in the cold water so there are no lumps
*mix the rest ingredients before hand
*squeeze the tomato paste onto it and stir fast, don’t let it burn
* pour the Vegetable stock mix immediately on it before the paste turns
*stir and mix so all mixes and then pour the flour mix slowly and keep
*cook on a medium heat and keep stirring as it will get thicker slowly
*takes around 5 minutes, it’s ready as the consistency is creamy
For the Vegetable stock you can make a pot once and freeze in small air-tight boxes or ice cube trays
Just cut cubes of vegetables like:
1 fresh bunch of Spring onion
Fresh Thyme and Rosemary leaves
First of all stir all the vegetables in 3 tbs butter slightly
Add around 3 glasses of water and let it cook at least an hour, You will
see some foam building around so keep removing with a skimmer
Season with salt and black pepper accordingly
Let it cool down completely then either store in fridge if you need it
in the next 2 days or then best is to freeze cubes. This is what I usually do,
just fill it in the ice cubes bags and you have it ready to use any time.
I also use the Organic mixed Vegetable stock powder which is without any
taste enhancers’ or any extra preservatives’, it is a mix of pure dry organic
Vegetables. If any one living in Germany wants to buy, then best is from
May be many don’t find it fancy but believe me it is a light yet very delicious
and filling meal.
Of course if you have a Basil pot near you, that increases the charm of this Pasta dish:)
One cannot stop eating the Penne, this is what we did,
sauce-in mouth : )
Eat healthy and Stay Fit :D
