VeganMoFo: Vegan in Boise

I mentioned in previous posts that my hetero-life partner is in town with family in tow. With that being said, I'd like to apologize for my lack of creativity in the kitchen and my overall general laziness that has, and will be gracing this blog for the remainder of this week.

The only thing I think we love more than eating is eating out and we have been doing a lot of that! So this post is all about my favorite vegan friendly joints here in Boise.

Go ahead, start planning your trip here; the food alone is worth it.

Jenny's Lunch Line:

Jenny's is a cool joint. The menu is different everyday and there is almost always something vegan friendly there to consume for lunch. There is ALWAYS delicious vegan cookies; BandMan is the baker there and ChefMom is the head honcho.

Vegan White Bean Hummus and Veggies Sandwich with Yam Salad and Lemon Couscous


MaiThai:

Holy Moly I love this spot. The food is amazing and the staff does a great job of making you feel like royalty. They seriously have the best vegetarian/vegan menu in town. It comes equipped with a gorgeous mango cake that  I would walk across hot coals for.

The Vegan Bento Box: Garlic Fried Rice, Yellow Curry, VegChicken, Spring Roll


Flying Pie:

Man vs. Food, you seen that show? Flying Pie was on that show because they have a wicked triple habenero pizza. I've never tried it because it has chicken and cheese on it (and you have to sign a waiver in order to consume it) but it sure looks like fun. Anywho, the only person who makes better vegan pizza than Flying Pie is me; Ok, ok, they're comparable.

Build Your Own Pizza: Artichoke Hearts, Spinach, Whole Roasted Garlic, Onion, Fresh Jalapenos on the side. 



HippieMom, FroBoy, BandMan, and Myself; we like to eat

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…
