Wasabi Cauliwings

"Spicy without Chilies" is my fave prompt of Vegan MoFo so far this year. When I was perusing the prompts before the start of this thing I thought I didn't need to worry about this one because spicy food is my lyfe. In the name of everything holy, the integrity of the MoFo, and in doing this thing right I realized that it's hard to make something truly spicy without capsaicin.

I spent a lot of time going through my mental rolodex of all the instances I had unexpectedly eaten spicy food and all of the instances were related to some very spicy peppers. Honestly, I was starting to feel defeated. And then like a bolt of lightning of a good idea, my son eating wasabi for the first time just appeared in my head. And that's how we got here.

Make your fave cauliflower wings recipe or go get the frozen suckers from Trader Joe's - either way you have to try this cause it's sooooooo good.

Wasabi Cauliwings

Cauliflower Wings (minus any sauce)
1/4 c vegan butter, melted (I used Miyoko's)
3 tbsp wasabi paste
1 tbsp maple syrup
2 tsp rice wine vinegar
  1. Mix all ingredients together and coat your cauliwings. 
  2. Gobble.

ICYMI, I've got sugarless dessert over here with this Blueberry Rosemary Cornmeal Cake

Can't get enough? I'm all over the place, let's follow each other (cause that doesn't sound creepy, at all!) InstagramTwitterFacebook, and Pinterest.  Nothing makes me heart more full than when people let me know they've tried my recipes. If you wanna help make my heart happy you can # vegan4one, comment on the post, post on my wall, tweet at me; whichever socials you feel comfy with.

All the love,

Amber

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…
