Thai Pizza

Wow, ok it's VeganMoFo time again. That came fast. And that's what she said.

Not too much has been going on this year unless you call being officially paid to write about veganism(!), playing music with awesome musicians, getting a new killer house, a pretty rad job, and watching VegKid grow into an amazing human. Oh and there's BandMan. Sweet jesus, I'm in love with that boy.

I'm tempted to tell all you VegHeads that this is my favorite pizza of all time, but I think it's right up there with my Brussels Sprout Pizza I made with ChefMom. Same principle, I guess, just different flavors. Anywho, check how delicious it looks.

Eat some.





1 block of tofu, cubed
1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
2 tbsp tamari (or soy sauce)
1 1/2 tbsp peanut butter
2 tsp sriracha
2 tsp Montreal Steak Seasoning
2 tbsp agave
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1/2 cucumber, peeled and sliced
your favorite pizza crust
1/2 c plum sauce
red pepper flakes, to taste
2 c Daiya Mozzarella
1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
alfalfa sprouts
cilantro
  1. Get that oven to 425.
  2. Marinate your cubed tofu in the oil, tamari, peanut butter, sriracha, and seasoning for about 30 minutes. When that half hour is over, throw those delicious little nuggets of happiness in a hot pan and cook until browned.
  3. While your happiness is browning, marinate the cucumbers in the agave and rice wine vinegar. Put that shit in timeout until it's time to eat.
  4. Prepare your pizza dough however feels natural to you and then spread the duck sauce over top, sprinkle with red pepper flakes, and throw on your faux cheese, tofu, and bell pepper strips. Bake for about 15 minutes. You'll know when it's down to get eaten.
  5. When the pizza is all golden brown, bring her out of the oven and top with the marinated cucumbers, alfalfa sprouts, and cilantro. 
  6. YUM!

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…
