Broccoli Olive and Corn Salsa Recipe

I'm just mixing up cultures as I see fit. All cuisines, from all over the world, have the human palate in common. They can blend in some amazing ways. 
This has a really fresh and clean flavor. It's light, but filling. Ideal for the end of summer. It just needs a little bread or rice to go with it. 

Make sure when you serve it to coat the bread or rice with some of that scrumptious sauce!
Salsa Recipe Ingredients
2 broccoli crowns, chopped small
1 can small black olives, halved
2/3 cup frozen corn
1/2 cup frozen peas
2 shallots, diced
1 jalapeno, minced
1 poblano, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tlbs olive oil
1 tbl hot sauce
2 tsps spicy mustard
2 tsps salt
1 tsp black pepper
2 tsps dry thyme

Add all the ingredients to a large mixing bowl and stir to combine. Let rest overnight. 

The broccoli cooks in the acid and the frozen ingredients thaw without losing their color or flavor.


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.
