Sprouts and Radishes with a Balsamic Reduction

There are so many reasons to love this dish; it's beautiful, pure, and uncorrupted by sodium injections and cardboard boxes.

It should come as no shock to anyone here that brussels sprouts are my favorite, and it's true they are; I've proposed on several occasions, but they keep turning me down (a gal's gotta keep trying, right?!) The point I'm aiming (and missing) for is that although bsprouts are my jam, the radishes really take the cake in this one. They stole the show for me. 

1 lb Brussels sprouts, halved
1/2 lb radishes, halved
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

  1. Preheat oven to 400. 
  2. Coat the sprouts and radishes in the olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast the veggies in the oven until the sprouts start to brown and crisp; about 20-30 minutes, or so. 
  3. While the veggies are cooking, simmer the balsamic on the stove until it reduces by half and gets thick. 
  4. When the veggies are done, plate them and serve with a drizzle of the balsamic vinegar reduction.


  1. Roasted radishes?! I didn't know you could cook them! Now I feel like a fraud for calling them my favorite veggie! And boo, I just shredded mine for salads...I can't wait to try this one. :)

    This is so yummy. I'd never had radishes before I tried this dish and now I love them!

I’m not gonna lie to you my pizza was very bomb but everything else was very not.

Firenza (located in downtown Boise) looks, feels, and acts like a corporate fast food franchise because it is a corporate fast food franchise but it’s a corporate fast food franchise that offers vegan pizza, and if it wasn’t for the damn up-charges it would be, on the cheap. 

My guests and I walked through the front door of Firenza (which was kinda hard to find to be honest) and I immediately got thrown back to my high school cafeteria and not in a pleasant way. Imagine bare white walls and what looks like a giant high school logo painted over a pizza assembly line. 
We approached the pizza assembly line and I immediately told the staff member who welcomed us that this was our first time visiting the restaurant and asked for guidance. They said ok and blankly stared at us until I eventually broke the awkward silence and started asking about vegan options. 
The sauces on the menu were clearly marked as veg…

Happy MoFo! I'm excited to be back on my newly revamped, but same old same, mediocre blog for Vegan MoFo 2018. Last year I participated but I participated exclusively on the gram (you can follow me if you feel like it). While I loved the daily prompts, I totally missed sharing the recipes; so I'm glad to be back. 
Quick explanation about the name change (in case you noticed):In previous years, this blog participated in Vegan MoFo as "Vegan4One." There were a lot of reasons why I felt the need to change my blog name but ultimately the main reason was that my recipes were no longer 4One and I found the name misleading to readers. When I originally started this blog back in September of 2009, I was cooking vegan for one person but so much has happened over the years (as it should) and to make that long story short, I'm cooking for more like 6 folks now (2 grown men, 1 teenage boy, myself, and an extra serving for my lunch the next day).

Savory Taco Pancakes

Below is an actual text I sent to my partner and son, but first some context: I practice Intermittent Fasting every day, so breakfast doesn't get served until noon or later daily - thus it's not really referred to as breakfast. We usually refer to it as "first meal" and sometimes brunch. My kid and partner can't really handle the late first meal on the weekends, but they deal surprisingly well. While I was making first meal today, my son was snacking on leftover cold pizza from yesterday and my partner was chugging a blueberry protein shake. So what does this have to do with the above referenced text? Well when they grew tired of waiting on me to finish putting together this dish, they decided to run down to our closest music store and grab some new guitar strings. Almost immediately after their departure, I had completed today's first meal and let me tell you I feel like a completed a masterpiece. So here's the text I sent in a group message as the van w…
