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.


Meatless Challenge

I received an email from light life. This is a rare occurance. Apparently they've come out with a new line of refrigerated meatless burgers. Which is music to my ears and lips.

One is fortified with quinoia. Which is great, but I'm allergic. The other is black bean based. Which I love. Black beans are an aweseome meat replacer.

There are few things in life I love more than a great meantless burger. There's something so satisfying about making/comsuming a patty that defies the typcial dead animal protocol.

The root of it is the sandwich. It doesn't need to be a dead thing. It just needs to be delicious. ANd that's easily accomplished through other means.

The fact is, good veggie patties are trickier to create, but far more rewarding.

Any asshole can throw together a typical hamburger. Big whoop.

But it takes an attist to assemble a crave worthy veggie patty. And crave worthy they are with the right ingredients and topppings.

Meat is easy to make good. It takes a real chef to produce a meantless masterpiece.
