Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

Guess what I found out while I was making this dish? If you put glass dishes in an oven heated to 500, when you open the door and cool air goes into the oven, your dish will explode. So a word of caution: use a metal baking dish to roast your peppers.

Speaking of peppers, I was super proud to use bells from our garden to make this sauce. I'm sure you can tell from the picture below but I served this sauce on top of roasted broccoli. It was a great combo of flavors; the next day we had a little bit of leftover sauce so we tossed with some brown rice penne and it was also lip smackin'. The ultimate dish would be a mixture of the two: pasta, roasted broccoli, and this sauce.

Try it, but seriously don't use glass.



2 red bell peppers
2 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, minced
6 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 c non-dairy milk
1/4 c nutritional yeast
1 1/2 tbsp tapioca flour
red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper, to taste

  1. Preheat to 500 and put your peppers on a baking sheet - not a glass casserole dish - roast for about 30 minutes. The peppers should get all charred and soft. Peel the skin and get out the seeds and stems.
  2. Get your oil hot in a skillet and cook up your onions and garlic until translucent and aromatic.
  3. When the bell peppers are all prepped and the onions are all tender, toss all in the ingredients in your blender and give it a go until it's smooth and the consistency of pasta sauce. 
  4. Now that your sauce is all blended up, put it on the stove and heat up so it has a chance to thicken a bit. 
  5. Toss with pasta or your favorite veggies.

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…

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…
