VeganMoFo: BSprouts and Shrooms

I'm pretty sure I've told you all this a million times but I love brussels sprouts! At one point in my life, I actually entertained the idea of marrying these little yummy dudes, but guess what I found out? It's illegal to marry food! Who knew right?!

This dish would definitely convert any none BSprout fans into full fledged stalkers. Everyone at the ShugaShack was feeling this dish. I served it along side some maple glazed carrots, and had to do some real plotting and scheming to make sure I had some left over for lunch the next day. Did I mention I had to plot and scheme against myself?! Yeah. That happened.

4 c Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
1 onion, quartered and thinly sliced
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
2 c sliced oyster mushrooms
3/4 cup vegetable broth
1/2 tsp liquid smoke
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  1. Brown the sliced onions in a skillet with a little bit of olive oil.
  2. Add the garlic and cook for another minute. Take the onion and garlic out of the skillet and keep them on the side for a little time out.
  3. Throw in the BSprouts and cook until they begin to brown.
  4. Now it's time to add in the shrooms and liquid smoke. Make sure to give them a good stir. 
  5. After a minute or two add in the broth and onion. Turn the heat down and cook until the sprouts are ready to Try A Little Tenderness. 
  6. Serve and enjoy.


  1. Yum, this looks like it would be great on a Thanksgiving menu.

    1. You're right, Laura. I might make it again for Thanksgiving...maybe add some walnuts or something on top. Yumz!

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…
