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.


Veggie Burger Madness

Yesterday I ate my very first lightlife original veggie burger. Today I ate the other one from the package. This time I went all out. I toasted a thomas' bagel in the pan first. Then I seared the veggie burger. Then I added a borden cheese single slice to it and let that melt. Topped the whole thing with some pickle slices.

Of course, now my very vegan burger was no longer vegan, but it was still very much vegetarian and still had no trace of eggs anywhere to be found. I would like to be vegan someday, but don't feel quite ready yet. But even as a vegetarian I still won't eat eggs. Not unless I'm certain they're cruelty free. So that excludes all eggs in premade foods since their is no way of knowing where they've come from. So the lightlife burgers and most of their products are superior in my mind because 90% of them are egg free. Most vegetarian mass market products seem to contain eggs. Which really irks me. It just seems wrong. I'm glad someone is making a stronger effort.

Anyway, wow! It was really good yesterday all plain like. It was phenomenal in its intended burger format. This is the sort of food you can use to convince meat-eaters to changed teams.
