עקסטרעם וועגאַן מאַקעאָווער: סקאַלליאָן פּאַפּשוי קייקס מיט שווארצע-ייד פּי סאַלסאַ אַדישאַן

For the past couple of weeks, I haven’t been able to go to the Farmer’s Market and I am going through withdrawal really bad! I am missing all the booths, all the color, all the choices, all the new and different vegetables you can’t find in a regular supermarket. וואָס צו טאָן?

It’s times like this when what’s needed is a good recipe or two that makes use of the more common produce that’s easy to find like onions, גלאָק פּעפּערז, tomatoes and scallions. A well-stocked pantry and freezer are life-savers as well. I always keep lots of frozen produce on hand. Since the fruits and veggies are frozen as soon as they are picked, they maintain all their nutrient value. And I always have cans of various beans for fast and easy cooking.

This is the time of year when corn fields are taller than basketball players and there’s plenty of fresh corn available. This recipe makes use of corn in both components. But maybe you don’t have fresh corn available. Maybe the thought of those tall corn fields makes you have “Children of the Corn” nightmares. Maybe that’s just me. אָדער וועג, you can just as easily use a thawed bag of frozen corn.

The salsa is a colorful mix of black-eyed peas, קוקורוזע, טאַמייטאָוז, גרין בינז, red onion and bell peppers marinated in a tangy vinegar and lime dressing. The corn cakes are quick and easy to make. Crispy and satisfying, they are delicious served hot or cold, covered with the beautiful salsa.

You can add nutritional yeast and/or ground flaxseed to make them even healthier, if you want. I like to add flaxseed to my dishes to add those omega-3s but I try to avoid nutritional yeast because the glutamate gives me bad headaches. Besides being Vegan (אַוואַדע), this recipe is gluten-free and soy-free.

This healthy and hearty dish just proves that by keeping some basic groceries on hand, you can still make a colorful, delicious and compassionate meal that will wow your friends and family!
