Patatas Bravas should really served as a tapas dish, however, it makes a great camping/festival meal and is also good for an end of the week/month dinner, when the cupboards (and purse) are bare!
- 2 tbsp olive or vegetable oil
- 1 kg/2lb bag of frozen potato cubes, almost defrosted
- 1 large jar of tomato and chilli pasta sauce
Throw in the jar of tomato and chilli sauce and any extras (see below) and heat through for a further few minutes until piping hot.
Serve with bread, olives and salad.
Alternatives: To bulk this out, add some extra veg/protein along with the tomato sauce (eg: a tin of drained beans/chickpeas/sweetcorn/sliced mushrooms/veggie salami/chorizo etc...anything ready cooked.). You could also swap the potato cubes for frozen chips, wedges or even hash browns.
For a cheaper version, use 'real' potatoes and a home made tomato sauce.
Make individual portions and serve as a tapas dish whilst watching Spain play in the World Cup!
