Brussels Sprout Stuffed Mushrooms

This is one of those dishes that works for everything: dinner, snack, potlucks, holidays, you-name-it. It's definitely something I would make for anyone whether they are a foodie, anti-vegan, or whatever. I picked some fairly large criminis to make these bite sized delectables but if you want to make a hearty main dish, portabellos would be perfect.

I know I'm probably the only person in the cosmos that loves brussels sprouts the way I do. If that is the case, don't discard this idea. You can replace the brussels sprouts with any veggie you love. Imagine this stuffed with creamed kale......oh my glob. Am I right?!




12 Crimini Mushrooms, stems removed
1/2lb brussels sprouts, sliced thin
1/2 c cashew cream sauce
2 tbsp nutritional yeast (optional)
  1. preheat to 400 and plop your mushrooms caps in there for 10 minutes or so. 
  2. While the caps are in the oven, fry up your thinly sliced sprouts and make your cashew cream sauce, with or without the additional nooch.  When the ten minutes are up and your sprouts are starting to brown, take the shrooms out of the oven and set aside. Also, mix the sprout shavings with the cashew cream sauce. Using a tablespoon, stuff the mushrooms with 1 scoop of the creamy sprout mixture. 
  3. Throw that shit back in the oven for an additional ten minutes, or until they seem heated all the way through and the creamy sprout mixture is browning on top. 
  4. After a brief cooling sesh, eat that shit like it's your last meal cause if it is....you'll probably be ok with it.

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).

RESTAURANT REVIEW: Firenza

...

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…

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…
