Patatas Bravas Recipe

Hola! I decided to recreate the patatas bravas that I had for tapas in the Spanish restaurants! When making the patatas, I accidentally picked up the vinegar instead of the olive oil to cook them in! This worked out well as the patatas turned out very crispy and delicious cooked in a mixture of vinegar and olive oil!

Patatas Bravas

Patatas Bravas

Makes 1 portion

Patatas Ingredients

2            Large potatoes

1 tbsp    Vinegar

1 tbsp    Olive oil

1/2 tsp   Sea salt

1/2 tsp   Black pepper

Bravas Sauce Ingredients

1 tsp      Olive oil

1 clove  Garlic

1 can     Chopped tomatoes

1 tbsp   Tomato puree

1 tsp      Cayenne pepper

1 tsp      Paprika

1/2 tsp   Sea salt

1/2 tsp   Black pepper


Preheat the oven to 200C.

Chop the potatoes into pyramids. Now place them on a baking tray and drizzle with vinegar and olive oil. Put the tray in the oven and bake for 45 minutes or until browned and crispy.

To make the bravas sauce, heat olive oil in a sauce pan over a low heat. Add the chopped garlic and fry for a minute or two. Then add the can of tomatoes, tomato puree, cayenne pepper, paprika, sea salt and black pepper. Simmer on a low heat while the potatoes cook.

Pile the patatas onto a plate and spoon some of the spicy bravas sauce over the patatas. Serve warm. Store the excess bravas sauce in a container in the fridge. Very tasty on chips!


Patatas Bravas in Calpe

Buenas dias! Today we went into Calpe to do some shopping. Unfortunately on the way back it poured with rain, so much so that we couldn’t cross the road to walk back to the car as the road had turned into a river! So we ran into the Spanish restaurant El Paseo to shelter from the rain and have lunch while we waited for the rain to stop.

The only vegan meal on the menu was Patatas Bravas! It is becoming one of my favourite meals! Crispy potatoes with spicy tomato salsa sauce! I will keep you updated with other vegan meals that I find in the restaurants!
