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.


How To Make a Sandwich Without Meat or Cheese

How do you make a sandwich without meat? It's the million dollar question. It seems impossible, but it's really quite easy. It also tastes great, costs less, is better for you and doesn't require refrigeration.

Start with an awesome, hearty bread like rye or whole wheat. Bread is the most important ingredient in your sandwich. It's the foundation.


Upgrade from mayo to hummus. Creamy, rich and with boat loads more flavor. It tastes better and is better for you. Supermarket hummus now comes in a crazy assortment of flavors, brands and price ranges.


Add salty, succulent beans. Black beans have a great meat like texture and bite. They are a perfect meat substitute. They don't taste like meat.  They taste better. They feel like ground beef. They taste salty, starchy and a little bit sweet. Other great sandwich beans are kidney, red, lentils and pinto.




Don't forget to add your condiments. Nurtitional yeast paired with tart pickles creates a gooey cheese like amalgam that's hard to beat. I often prefer it to real cheese. Plus it's way more nutritious. Full of B12 and complete proteins.

Don't skimp on texture. Add some vibrant romaine and or raw onion for that crisp snap and assertive bite every sandwich needs to truly be great. . A sandwich just isn't complete without lettuce. And romaine is far superior to that old standby iceberg. Or try green cabbage in place of lettuce.
