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.

super easy
super quick
big flavor
gluten free
oil free

This dish is recommended for fans of spring cleaning and peach daylilies. It stars aquafaba, which is literally the most amazing magic ingredient for vegan cooking. Learn more hereServe this stir fry with rice if you feel like it.

1 red onion, thinly sliced
4 zucchini, sliced
2 cups of sugar snap peas
2 ears of fresh sweet corn
1 c cooked chickpeas, aquafaba reserved
1 tbsp liquid aminos
fresh basil leaves
fresh garlic 
red chili flakes, to taste
  1. Heat up about 2 tbsp of aquafaba, the chickpeas cooking liquid, in a big pot. Throw in your onion and saute until the onion is tender. 
  2. Add your zuccs and snaps to the pot party and give them a whirl around. Put a lid on it and let the fresh veggies lightly steam while you do some other shit. 
  3. Shuck the corn and cut it off the cob - the corn is only invited to the party when you feel like invited them - you hold all the power here. When you're just about ready to eat, add that corn and the liquid aminos. Leave the lid off this time so the liquid can cook out.
  4. When the liquid if gone from the pot party, remove everyone from the stovetop and mix in your chickpeas, fresh basil, fresh garlic, and chili flakes to taste.

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…
