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,

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…

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, jalapeños, 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…
