Thai Hummus-Crusted Cauliflower Steaks

You guys! I finally got to cook in my new kitchen! I can't share pictures yet because this house is still all boxes and no shine. But soon my, VegHeads. You must be patient.

From all the packing and unpacking, moving, two different band practices a day, and multiple out-of-town music festivals I've been performing at, my brain is a bit stalled on life. It's been goGOGO for the past few weeks and the whole family has been - well as VegKid put it - "when are we going to be done being in a hurry all the time?"

Hurry up and unpack that box, hurry up and tune your guitar, hurry up and pack your camping bag for the festival (but make sure to forget all your contact stuff), hurry up make dinner. In this hurried time, I don't even think about a meal until well after everyone is hangry; so I'm not ashamed to say that I turn to some of my favorite vegan blogs to help guide me when my culinary creativeness is hurried out the door.

In this case, I found this wonderful hummus-crusted cauliflower from FatFree Vegan. I didn't have any tahini or rosemary, but what I did have was peanut butter and fresh basil and cilantro from my herb garden; so with a few tweaks, I made a Thai version of her glorious dish. It was exactly what I needed after all that hurry.

Here's exactly how I make Thai Hummus

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).

Fried Peach Pasta Salad w/fresh mangoes & blueberries

But for 24,240 hours, you've patiently waited for me while I explored other things like getting married, expanding my reach on Instagram, getting a promotion, going on many tours with my band and recording two amazing (if I do say so myself) albums. And now I'm back for a little while because I missed you and I hope you missed me too.Speaking of missing stuff: ya know how in the Summer heat you can wait for Fall so you can wear your favorite sweater? And in the dead of Winter all you can daydream about how tan you're going to be come Summer? Well, Boise is officially entering the phase of Summer that makes you beg for Fall. With temps over 100 everyday it can be hard to cook, eat, or just function in general.

This quick and cooling salad is a one stop shop for a meal. It's got everything you need for it to be a successful single main dish, but it def works as side dish too.

Look a lot of people are dependent on salt to enhance the flavor of their food but here's the deal - too much salt (like anything else) is not awesome for your body, or your head, or your brain, or your mind (claps for anyone who can guess what movie that loose quote is from). I could go in to a long lecture-speech on the effects of eating too much salt but y'all ain't here for that and google is free. 
When you're ready to reduce your salt intake look for other flavor enhancers to make your meal's best attributes (a.k.a. flavors) P O P ! Like adding a squeeze or two of fresh lemon or lime juice, or your fave type of vinegar if you don't have any fresh lemon or limes; you really can't go wrong with adding fresh minced garlic, ginger, green onions, cilantro, basil, jalapeƱos, like literally any fresh strong flavor will do the trick and do it salt-free. In those times of desperate need get you a lil pump spray bottle and fill it with Braggs Liquid Aminos or co…
