Its Pizza time! I whipped up this Mexican Inspired Pizza a few days back. I decided to top it with Easy home made Refried beans with a hint of chipotle pepper (Frijoles Refritos), topped them with fresh Pico de gallo(yes its a phase) and Lime crema. I think I love the beany pizza sauces more than the plain old marinara:) The Pizza did not need any cheese. Vegan Cheddar would go well on it if desired.
I have a big Roasted Kabocha squash. Yes I roasted it whole, like the butternut for about 35 minutes at 330 degrees F .. Turned out beautifully.:) .I think I am going to whip up either some Spicy Kabocha Flautas/Taquitos or Kabocha Chickpea fries tomorrow.. vote in the comments below for which one:).
I made some Roasted Kabocha Crepes/Dosa, exactly as the Sweet Potato Crepes, and made a short video of me making the crepes. The video is uploaded at the end of the Sweet potato crepe post.
My eyes are being very ridiculous since the past week and I am ready to learn to walk blind folded.. I couldnt stand in the kitchen for more than 2 minutes for 2 full days last week..gaaah… finally I realized I can walk easier on the carpeted area, so we put a thick rug on the tiles and I made it to the 15 minute in the kitchen mark.. Plans to get a home with all hard wood has to be reconsidered for a once or twice a year randomness as these. Pfft.
Luckily I have a bunch of pictures I needed to edit and my eyes are holding up while working on the machine with breaks.. so here is a pizza for the weekend.
