Spaghetti Squash al Limone

About a week ago, ChefMom sent me this picture wondering if I was interested in having some: DUH!

Big thanks to ChefMom for helping keep the VegFam's bellies happy and full.

ChefMom gifted me an heirloom pumpkin, 2 delicata squash, 2 buttercup squash, 2 acorn squash, and 1 huge spaghetti squash. If you click on the name of the winter squash listed above, you can see how I prepared them. Obviously, this post is dedicated to the spaghetti squash.

This dish is light, bright, and tangy. I have a feeling I will be seeing a lot more of this when the heat comes back.

1 large spaghetti squash
1 lb broccoli florets
4 garlic cloves, diced
2 lemons, juiced
1/4 c olive oil
1 c nutritional yeast
1/4 c Italian seasoning

  1. Preheat the oven to 425.
  2. Cut our squash in half and scoop out all those seeds and junk. Put the cut side down on a pan with some water in it and roast that sucka until it's tender to a fork touch, about 40 minutes. 
  3. Get the garlic all nice and brown in a bit pan, then add in your broccoli florets. Cook until tender.
  4. Whisk together the olive oil and the lemon juice until two become one, emulsification baby!
  5. After you remove the squash from the oven, let it cool, scrape out the noodles, and add it into the broccoli, add in your seasoning and nutritional yeast. Cook for about 5 minutes in your big broccoli pot.
  6. Take the oven down to 350. Combine the squash and lemon mixtures into a casserole dish: cook until heated through and looks mouthwatering, about 30 minutes.

P.s. yesterday I decided to start keeping a food picture diary, ya know to start keeping track of what I'm eating or whatever; it just so happens I'm keeping this food picture diary on instagram. So if you're interested in following, click here.

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…
