Favorite Childhood Meal

When I was growing up, my mom often fed us easy, quick, affordable meals.  This is one I loved and missed since becoming a vegetarian.  It doesn't really have a name but it's delicious. 

It begins by sauteing and slightly carmelizing some diced onions.  Once they are browned a little, add in some diced tomatoes, followed by minced jalapenos.  All cooking together on low/med heat.  Once the flavors have married, about 3 minutes, add chopped soydogs to the pan, a little water or veggie stock and cover.  Reduce to low and cook for 10 more minutes, stirring occasionally.  Soydogs should be soft to the touch when done - Do Not Overcook.  They taste terrible if you do (Hi, my name is elizabeth and I've done this...several times).  I found that adding the water helps stream them quickly and efficiently.  And presto, my favorite childhood meal.

I serve with Mexican cream and cheese on the side.  I also like to add cilantro right before eating.  Makes for great tacos, burritos, or on its own.  Enjoy!

P.S.  Jalapeno is optional, I didn't add it in the last time, thinking my daughter was going to eat some.  I caramelized the onions instead to add more flavor to the already scrumptious meal.
