I got my inspiration in this guttural,mushy and fancy coloured salad in one day when I watched one of TV`s cooking programs where cook was making some grill-kabobs with tofu and sweetpotato slices. Then I got huge craving to try some food-thing with using sweetpotaoes.
I was planning to make some beanysalad in some day, so I decided to make some sweetpotato-bean salad with roasted asparagus pieces.
First I take baking sheet and put asparaguses in it and garnish with little soy sauce and garlicpowder and then put it in owen and roasted it couple of minutes.
Then I peeled and cubed one large sweetpotato and boiled it in salted water. I tooked some bowl and putted chilled,small potato chuncs in it.I also added a can of kidney beans(rinsed),some fresh pepper slices, hashed asparaguses and one 200g pack of freezed mixture of carrot cubes,green beans,peas and cauliflower chunks. Then I stirred whole thing well and added some seasonings: lots of garam masala, curry powder,garlic powder,pepper,fennel and some herb/pizza seasoning+ a bit of fresh parsley, and ofcourse sea salt!
Then I putted the bowl in fridge and leaved it chilling.
I felt like that sweetpotato-thing would need some nice music to listen when eating it.. SO! There it comes: I grubbed one of my guttural deatmetal records for my CD rack. It was that Kataplexia`s Catastrophic Scenes which I haven`t listened since long times. I think that finnish ug-deathmetal band would be worthy of this kind of tasty vegan-foodiething… So I decided to name my sweetpotato-asparagus/bean “thing” accordingly Kataplexia`s second(and the best) record “Catastrophic Scenes” which “nice&happy” cover art you can see behind that glorious salad thing. You can check out this band here: http://www.kataplexia.com
That`s really one of most deathmetallous vegan salads I have tasted..You should also try this and not to be too carefull for adding some of your favourite ingredients! That was catastrophic good…
