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.


Curry Egg and Bean Sandwich To Die For

This morning I made one of the best sandwiches I've eaten in my whole life. It was just so good. So satisfying. Words fall short on conveying how much I loved this sandwich.

I began with two slices of seeded rye bread. The caraway seeds in rye bread just make me love it so much more than the unseeded variety. Caraway seeds are the bomb. I could eat them all day on anything.

To both slices of rye I added about 1 tablespoon of Sabra roasted garlic hummus. Sabra makes the best hummus. I love their hummus. I'm not getting compensated to say that. Not at all. I pay way too much for it, just like the rest of you. Or I forebear and wait for a sale.

For my sandwich 'meat' I used one sliced hard cooked egg. Then I bedazzled that with a few sprinkles of black beans.

Here's the important part: Dust with a light sprinkling of curry powder. I used Simply Organic brand since that is what I had and I also think it's quite a nice blend. No compensation for that either. Just like how it tastes.

I finished it off with some sliced black olives and a generous mix of salad I'd made the day before. The salad mix being outer and inner romaine lettuce, finely minced jalapeno and pan roasted garlic slices.

I can't emphasize this enough. It was the best sandwich I've ever eaten. And I'm not even really a big fan of egg sandwiches. But this sandwich totally rocked my world. It could be just as spectacular with two kinds of beans and no egg. Like red and black. Or kidney and black. Or pinto and black. It's gotta have the black though. And the curry powder. I don't know what gave me the idea to season a sandwich with curry powder, but it is an orgasm between two slices of rye bread.
