Baby Bella Medley with Mustard Sauce

This is just a really simple veg medley with a little wine and french mustard to bring it all together. 
Conclusive proof that simple can be exceptional. 

1 pint baby bella mushrooms, sliced
1 poblano, diced
2 jalapenos, minced
1 red bell pepper, diced
1/2 medium spanish onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 can garbanzos, drained and rinsed
1 can red beans, drained and rinsed
2 tbls dijon mustard
2 1/2 tsps salt
1 tsp black pepper
2 tbls olive oil1/4 cup pinot grigio

Saute mushrooms in oil and salt. Cook the mushrooms down until they are pretty dark. Deglaze with wine. Cook off wine for 5 minutes. 

Add onions. Cook down until onions are tender and tramslucent. 

Add peppers and garlic. Keep cooking over medium low until peppers are also tender. 
Add beans, mustard and black pepper to a large heat safe bowl. 

When mushroom mixture is done cooking add it to the bowl of beans. Stir to combine.

Datem and Whey Dilemna

Of course I know that whey is a compenent of milk and therefore entirely not vegan. Datem on the other hand is a connundrum. Sources claim it can be derived from either animal or vegetable sources.

Personally I wouldn't care either way if datem and/or whey weren't in just about every bread available.

It's awfully sad that of all the commercially available bread on the maerket I can't find any that don't contain one or the other. I mean. for god's sake people, it's bread! It should be entirely animal product free. Vegans shouldn't have to read the ingredients list and ponder whether or not it's safe. IT'S BREAD! isn't that pretty much the definition of veagn. What is wrong with food manufacturer's that they can't make something so simple as bread without adding mystery ingredients.

I've a good mind to stop eating prepared bread altoghter. Just because it's wrong that they add this 'unknown' crap. if bagels can be made without whey or datem, then bread sure as hell can be too.

It's like they're purposely trying to incorporate animal products into unsuspecting peoples diets.

They're all evil, but sadly I don't have time to bake my own bread.

The federal government manages to regulate everything from how much I piss to how it should smell. But for some reason they cannot make animal product sources mandatory on food labels.

I cry conspiracy.
