Curried Collards

VegKid has gone up to the family cabin with the in-laws for the weekend. BandMan and I have been going to space and making music most of the time she's been gone. Today has been one of those lazy Saturdays where you feel like you've done nothing (mainly cause you're still in your jammies) but you've actually accomplished so much.

We have no plans for the day which is unlike us. We've got no where to be at no specific time and it's an amazing change in pace for the time being...

            Lazy Saturday Lunch is served.

1 bunch of collard greens, rough stems reserved
3 carrots, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 tbsp panch phoron

2 tbsp oil
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp coriander
1 tsp chili
1 tsp ginger
1 tsp cayenne
1/2 tsp cinnamon
salt, to taste
1 tbsp curry
a pinch of asafoetida
1/4 c unsweetened dissected coconut
  1. Get out a big pan and get some oil pretty hot. Toss in your panch phoron and listen close: when the seeds start popping toss in the diced carrots, onion, and diced collard green stems. Let that cook up for 3-5 minutes and then add in your spices (turmeric-salt). Let that cook until pretty tender, about 12 minutes. 
  2. When you are getting close to feeding time, toss in your chopped collard leaves. You can cook them as little, or as much, as you'd like. They'll taste great no matter what. 
  3. Remove from heat and finish her off by mixing in the curry, asafoetida, and coconut . Serve on top of rice and scarff.

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…

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…
