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.


Creamy Vegetarian Pasta

Here's a simple and quick vegetarian recipe. It's lacto-vegetarian. It only uses milk. It tastes really creamy and hearty, is easy to prepare and best of all, very inexpensive.

1 can Campbell's Cream of Asparagus Soup
(or similar vegetarian cream of asparagus soup)
1 soup can worth of low fat animal friendly milk
1/2 a box of pasta
6 cloves roughly chopped garlic
2 tbls spicy mustard
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp onion powder
2 tsp pepper
1 tsp olive oil
1/4 cup frozen carrots
1/3 cup frozen broccoli

Cook pasta according to package directions. Cook til not quite done though. Drain and set aside in a storage container to keep warm. Use a container big enough to store the entire dish in when you're done.

Add pasta pot back to warm burner and set to medium. Add soup and milk and bring to a strong simmer. Add frozen veg and continue to simmer five minutes more. Stirring occasionally.

Add pasta back to soup/veg pot. Adding slowly to thoroughly combine. Also add chopped garlic and olive oil. and simmer on medium high 3 minutes more stirring often.

Add spices. Stir. Remove from heat.

add your favorite beans for a heartier version. but with all the milk it's already a complete protein. it's also pretty low fat. and tastes great.
