Mashed Cauliflower with Broccoli & Chickpea - Pepper Salsa

I went grocery shopping today and came home with the following!

Yes, I bought a sweet potato for the first time in my life. We'll see what will happen with it.
And since I'm craving pizza quite often lately, yet never make any dough, I bought spelt pizza crusts.

So here's what I cooked. Rather simple, but verysatisfying.

Katie's Mashed Cauliflower, garlic Broccoli and Chickpea - Pepper Salsa (red pepper, yellow bell pepper, fresh tomatoes, tomato paste, 1 cup cooked & partly mashed chickpeas, onions, garlic, balsamic vinegar, garam masala, dried basil, nutmeg, salt, pepper).

I'm off to enjoy a long night now! I mean hey, I' haven't been on vacation for 6 months. So it really was about time!

I love seeing what people buy. =) It's so intriguing, especially to learn how vegans get by in other countries. Mashed cauliflower... mm... I love it!

Jennifer hat gesagt…

Oh, those peppers!

You got a sweet potato! Wahoo! I bet you won't be sorry.

That plate looks fantastic.

Enjoy your vacation.

I hope you enjoy your sweet potato! I love spelt--how lucky that you can find pre-made spelt pizza crusts! That is awesome...

You are going to love your magical sweet potato! My dorm oven is testy with sweet potatoes (but fine with cookies), so I pop my taters in the microwave on the potato setting. It's so fast! Then I sprinkle on some cumin and coriander and salt & pepper. Yum!

I just checked out your garlic broccoli recipe. Lookin' good right there! And I've been meaning to try Katie's mashed cauliflower too.

I can't wait to see what you come up with to go on top of those spelt crusts!

Thanks for the inspiration last night with the cauliflower! I sort of made my own recipe up as I went and it turned out great. Can't believe I'm just now discovering this! Wow!!

That salsa recipe looks really colourful.

Anke - It really is! I can so not see myself getting rid of the couch anytime soon ;)

Romina - Me too =)

Jennifer - It was the first time I bought those peppers. Is there any difference between these and bell peppers except for the shape? I thought they tasted a little bit more "earthy" than bell peppers!?
I think I'll make your roasted sweet potatoe, I'm sure this'll taste great!
Thank you =)

Courtney - The crust didn't taste too good actually. Not bad, but simply not great. I should just get off my butt and do my own!

Katie - Ha ha, you're right =p

Ruby - Mhhh... I wish I haven't had dinner already, because that sounds delicious!
Ohh, try it! I've had it so many times since I got the recipe and I just can't get enough =p
I just posted a picture of one spelt crust creation =)

Veggie Girl - Thank you =)
I think I might roast it. Roasted veggies taste fantastic and I assume a sweet potato will do too ;)

Jenna - That's exactly what I thought when I had it for the first time ;)

Cookiemouse - Thank you =) I just threw together a bunch of ingredients I had on hand and luckily the result came out good ;)
