Vegan MoFo: Pa-tayto, Po-tahto

I was feeling a bit uninspired tonight but I have been fancying patatas bravas for a couple of days, ever since someone reminded me of the tapas place we went to with work a couple of years ago.

I don't really know what goes into it but I knew it was roasted potatoes with a (not too runny) spicy tomato sauce on top. So I whizzed up a tin of tomatoes and added about half of it to a sauted shallot and clove of garlic, some oregano, paprika, salt, pepper and a good old glug of hot chilli sauce.

As I said I was feeling a bit uninspired so I just sauted up the fresh corn I had in the fridge in some olive oil and a pinch of salt & pepper. The bread isn't homemade, I got it on the cheap from Morrisons but it is spelt & rye bread and it is freakin rad!

Cooking to: Strictly Come Dancing (gotta love V+ for recording for me the crap I miss on Saturday nights!!)


  1. i've never thought to combine a spicy tomato sauce with some potatoes, Sal. it looks really good, and sounds like a tasty ass combination, indeeds! spelt & rye bread sounds freak'n awesome, too! mmmmmmmmm! i still need to get my hands on some shallots - i keep forgetting. argh!

  2. They look so crispy and yummy! You know, potatoes are the key to my heart!

  3. you call this uninspired? I love corn and potatoes and tomatoes anyway but the beautiful golden hue of those potatoes? drool

  4. Oh Sal - you've outdone yourself girl!
    These look freaking YUM!

  5. potatoes plus tomatoes sounds truly delicious. woot!
