The Asianish stuck-pot dish?

Sometimes we get sick of making normal food and want to try something that might not completely come together. Not only did this come together, but it ended up being pretty hardcore.

The concept behind a stuck-pot dish is having some kind of savory-awesome-crispy thing on the bottom of a cast iron skillet type pan with a bunch of goodness spread on top, then baked/roasted. We started with Japanese sweet potato on the bottom:

This was topped with snips of broccoli and cauliflower tossed with fresh ginger, soy sauce, garlic, fresh-ground peanuts, sesame seeds and diced purple cabbage. Before we put it in the oven we spread on a layer of thinly sliced tomatoes...these bad boys get all roasty and sweet when this is in the oven. See below:

 We served this on top of a little jasmine rice. Look at those amazing little potatoes in there...oooh-la-la
