We are in Asheville and I've pre-set a few posts until we get back to Tennessee. However, tonight we made a quick meal which deserves memorializing. It is an adaptation of a recipe from the now-closed Choices Restaurant in Franklin, TN.
Make a white sauce: Cook together 1T flour and 1 T margarine. Add 1 c unsweetened soymilk and salt and pepper to taste. Cook, stirring, until thick. Add 1/2 c canned cranberry sauce, and stir in. I added more cranberry sauce, as we tend to like fruity food.
Fry some Gardein "chicken" tenders - or use your preferred breaded and fried (or baked) protein. Serve over rice, spoon on some cranberry cream sauce, and finish with a tiny bit of fresh rosemary.
