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.


Faux Vegetarian Recipes

Why, oh why is the meat eating world just so ignorant? Anytime a non vegetarian creates a supposedly vegetarian recipe it is just so useless.

Beans people! There have got to be beans in it. It's just a rule. Black or white or red or kidney. It must contain beans.

If you want to make a vegetarian sandwich, you replace the missing meat with beans. If you want to make a vegetarian lasagna you replace the meat with beans. If you want to make a a vegetarian stew you replace the meat with beans. Are you sensing a pattern?

Salad on bread does not a vegetarian sandwich make. Technically it does, but no one wants to eat it. Lasagna noodles swimming in too much cheese is just wrong.

Beans! It's all about the beans! Beans are vegetarian meat.

If you're not going to bother understanding the most basic of vegetarian eating principles then don't go around writing vegetarian recipes.

Cheese does not replace meat. Beans replace meat. Vegetables do not replace meat. Beans replace meat. Spices, bread and mushrooms do not replace meat. Beans replace meat. If you don't have a recipe with beans in place of the meat, then you simply don't have a vegetarian recipe.
