Meanwhile cut the onion, spring onions and bell pepper in (little) pieces. Fry the onion in a little butter until soft, give spring onions and bell pepper to the onion and press the garlic above this mixture. Braise about 3 minutes.
Cut tomatoes and cucumber into little pieces and rip the salad into pieces.

Mash the potatoes with the carrots in the pan. Stirr in the milk and season with salt and pepper. Stirr the warm en cold vegetables under the mash en sprinkle a little parsley on top.
