Patatas Bravas

We are huge tapas fans! Bursting with flavour, patatas bravas are a favourite in our family. Quick and easy to make they are a definite winning dish.


  • olive oil
  • 1 onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp tomato purée
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 pinch chilli powder
  • 1 pinch sugar
  • fresh parsley to garnish
  • 1kg potatoes
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Dice the potatoes (I like to leave the skin on put you can peel them if you prefer).
  2. Pat the potatoes dry with kitchen roll before tipping into a roasting tin and tossing in olive oil, salt and pepper.
  3. Roast at 200 degrees for 40-50 mins until crisp and golden.
  4. While the potatoes are cooking make the sauce by heating oil in a pan and frying the onion for 5 mins until softened.
  5. Add the garlic, tinned tomatoes, tomato purée, paprika, chilli powder, sugar and a pinch of salt, stir well.
  6. Bring to the boil. Then lower the heat and simmer for 10 mins.
  7. Tip the potatoes into serving dishes and spoon over the tomato sauce.
  8. Sprinkle with fresh parsley to serve.
