Well here's the latest madness called "Sod It Grow Your Own" with Gary James on Aston FM. We have great fun doing this, but there are some good tips and the recipe is worth a try.
I managed to get a few hours down on N0 87 today while the weather was fine. I've planted the rest of my Isle of Wight Garlic, the Solent Wight variety. I also sowed some Cauliflower seeds in one of my mini propagators from my mate Choff.
Trouble is just when I could get a few more visits in, the weather is due to change. Typical!
Below is the recipe for Patatas Bravas, a great Tapas snack or a spicy accompaniment to Chicken.
1 lb 8 oz all-purpose potatoes, cut into 1-1/2 inch pieces
1/4 cup olive oil
For the Sauce
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 ripe tomatoes, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon dried chili flakes
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup dry white wine
1 tablespoon coarsely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
To make the spicy tomato sauce, heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat, add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes. Add the garlic, cumin, chili and paprika and cook for 1 minute. Increase the heat to high, add the wine and simmer for 30 seconds, then reduce the heat to medium and add the tomatoes and tomato paste. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes, or until the mixture is thick.
Process the sauce in a food processor or blender until smooth. Return the sauce to the saucepan to reheat and stir in the parsley. Check the seasoning.
Pour over the potatoes and serve.
