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.

Manwich is Vegan

Manwich brand sauce mix is vegan. The new chunky one is especially good. The original flavor it good too. Manwich is an easy way to make a vegan meal quickly. I like to cook and experiment and all that, but sometimes I just want fast and simple. This recipe will work for those times.

1 can manwich
1/2 box pasta
beans of choice
nutritional yeast

Manwich already has lotsa vegetables in it. You don't have to add any. Of course you can if you want. Broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, peas would all go really well.

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain in a colander and rinse under cold water. Set aside.

Return pasta pot to burner. Add manwich mix, nutritional yeast and beans. Cover and heat on medium low for 5 minutes. Stirring occasionaly.

Add pasta back to pot. Stir. Cover. Heat for 5 minutes more.

If you wish to add additional vegetables add them when you add the beans.

If you like really spicy, add some hot sauce in the last two minutes of the cooking process. or some chili peppers when you add the bean. Extra garlic can never be wrong. A splash of vinegar is not a bad addition. Vegans don't eat regular cheese, but if you're a vegetarian who eats cheese some cheddar, mozzarella and/or parmesaen would also go very nicely.
