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.


Vegetarian Mac and Cheese


Today I found two brands of vegetarian boxed macaroni and cheese. Unlike the sinister Kraft brand which is predicated on the stomachs of dead baby animals (calf, lamb and kid) these wonderful alternatives use only non-animal enzymes in their cheese packets.

Both Annie's and Back To Nature brand boxed mac and cheese dinners specify right on the package that the enzyme in their cheese mix are of the non-animal variety. Awesome!

All cheese containing packages really ought to require such labelling... animal or non enzymes. The people want to know. The governement of course doesnt' care. There's no money in it.

All restaurants need to get with the program as well. You already have the egg, milk and peanut info. It's not unreasonable for poeple to want to know if animal stock, fat or similar is lurking in their menu choice. List on your websties animal containing foods. Things with animals stocks, animals fats, any animal derived ingredients.
