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.


More Vegan Snack Foods

In my quest for egg free cookies and cakes I've discovered there are more options than one would first assume.

We already know that oreos and nabisco classic cookies are vegan.

But wait... there's more! For only $19.95 you too can own your very own vegan cookie detector. It will sound an alarm whenever you're in the presence of egg and milk containing cookies. And will emit a pleasant tone when vegan cookies are close to your lips.

No, but seriously, there are more great vegan snacks to be had. Don't listen to Natalie Portman. She's a lame-o.

My favorite are nutter butters. Peanut buttery goodness. They are totally addictive. And not a trace of animal products in the sorta long ingredients list. Not exactly a healthy choice, but animal free nonetheless.

Nabisco animal crackers are vegan too. Who doesn't love animal crackers? They are delicious and fun to eat.

Classic lays and low salt lays potato chips. Crunchy, salty goodness.

Mrs. Smith's Apple Pie. Regular or Dutch. Other flavors too. Pilsbury crescent rolls. Pilsbury biscuits. There are plenty of scrumptious vegan dessert items to be consumed.

For cookies, the rule of thumb is, only really crunchy cookies are vegan. Eggs make cookies soft and chewy. So Crunchy ones are the way to go. But always check ingredients to be certain.

The general idea is that there are plenty of great vegan snack foods out there. You needn't deprive yourself.
