Summer Succotash Style Stir Fry

T-minus 2 days until your girl goes on a much needed 2 week family vacation. Yup, that's right: after taking a few years off from posting marginally inspiring recipes on this here blog - I'm gonna take a few weeks off just days after my return. I have no delusions that the internet is going to stop or burn it self down. I doubt anyone will actually notice, or really care. 

Besides, this break is not about needing a break from the resurgence of this blog. It's more about needing a break from work. It's about strengthening my family's bond. Also, it's about eating some dank vegan southern food and embracing my own unimportance when it comes to contributing something new, inspiring, or remotely meaningful to food.  

Also, with only 2 days left until we fly out: it's clean out the fridge time.

super easy
super quick
big flavor
gluten free
oil free

This dish is recommended for fans of spring cleaning and peach daylilies. It stars aquafaba, which is literally the most amazing magic ingredient for vegan cooking. Learn more hereServe this stir fry with rice if you feel like it.

1 red onion, thinly sliced
4 zucchini, sliced
2 cups of sugar snap peas
2 ears of fresh sweet corn
1 c cooked chickpeas, aquafaba reserved
1 tbsp liquid aminos
fresh basil leaves
fresh garlic 
red chili flakes, to taste
  1. Heat up about 2 tbsp of aquafaba, the chickpeas cooking liquid, in a big pot. Throw in your onion and saute until the onion is tender. 
  2. Add your zuccs and snaps to the pot party and give them a whirl around. Put a lid on it and let the fresh veggies lightly steam while you do some other shit. 
  3. Shuck the corn and cut it off the cob - the corn is only invited to the party when you feel like invited them - you hold all the power here. When you're just about ready to eat, add that corn and the liquid aminos. Leave the lid off this time so the liquid can cook out.
  4. When the liquid if gone from the pot party, remove everyone from the stovetop and mix in your chickpeas, fresh basil, fresh garlic, and chili flakes to taste.

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…
