Tempeh with Lemon Ginger Spinach

After 2 weeks of eating my way through the South, my body is begging for some vegetables and literally any thing that's not fried. Here are some food highlights from my trip (all vegan of course): Chipotle Black Bean Tamales, Gumbo, Mellow Mushroom Pizza, Cauliwing plate, deep fried doublestuff Oreos...and that's not even the half of it. You can actually see *most* of the yummy food I had on my IG story (click the Instagram link below this recipe).

No lie tho, I'm so excited to be back in my freaking kitchen. I missed it so much. Well I guess I miss the therapeutic side effects that cooking gives me. Can you believe I didn't get to cook not one single damn time while I was gone? I didn't realize how hard it would be to go so long without getting in my kitchen but on this trip I realized I can't be doing that shit again. See cooking gives me time to relax; time to get lost in my own mind; time to let things go; and the opportunity to turn any mistake into a &quo…

Summer Succotash Style Stir Fry

T-minus 2 days until your girl goes on a much needed 2 week family vacation. Yup, that's right: after taking a few years off from posting marginally inspiring recipes on this here blog - I'm gonna take a few weeks off just days after my return. I have no delusions that the internet is going to stop or burn it self down. I doubt anyone will actually notice, or really care. 

Besides, this break is not about needing a break from the resurgence of this blog. It's more about needing a break from work. It's about strengthening my family's bond. Also, it's about eating some dank vegan southern food and embracing my own unimportance when it comes to contributing something new, inspiring, or remotely meaningful to food.  

Also, with only 2 days left until we fly out: it's clean out the fridge time.

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.
