Here it is: another easy recipe to boost your vegetable intake to the max for breakfast!
Alright, I’ll admit it’s only quick if you’ve already roasted a few red peppers, an eggplant and a carrot.
If not it will take a little more than 10 minutes.
But then you’re in for a delicious savory vegan breakfast that contains no tofu or potatoes and for 3 days full of happiness.
This is one of the recipes I’ve been in love with my whole life. Like all of it.
My grandmother used to make real big batches of something quite similar, so we have it for the rest of the year.
I’m not sure how she did it – I mean not just conserving, but keeping it together to not eat the whole thing while she was making it. I certainly can’t do that.
I like a lot of things in this world, but words can’t describe how much I love the smell and taste of roasted peppers.
One day I’ll make a perfume that smells like that, mark my word.
You can use this “spread” also as a dip or in wraps.
I like using it as a spread and it’s perfect for a quick savory vegan breakfast.
To me it’s a little like butter, because it melts in your mouth, but it’s made out of vegetables.
If you want to spice it up – there are many things you can try out: like adding garlic, some herbs like parsley or basil, some hot chili powder, nuts or chickpeas if you’d like.
There are almost no limits.
I love this simple version the most.
A quick tip: Make sure you leave your eggplant in a glass Tupperware/bowl to cool off, with lid on, for around 30 min.
Then remove the fluid that came out of it, to get rid of the bitterness roasted eggplant might add to this awesome vegetable spread.
And make sure your vegetables are through – they should be very soft, this makes the dip/spread more fragrant and tasty.
Health and beauty benefits
Believe it or not, there are real health benefits to this vegetable spread.
Everything is roasted, so you’d assume there is no benefit to this.
But thanks to those flavorful sweet red peppers, there are!
They’re very high in that powerful antioxidant lycopene, that is more available when we cook red vegetables.
Even more so when we add a little healthy fat to it, and we did – thank you olive oil!
Hope you like the spread, let me know how this recipe turns out for you!
