Patatas bravas

By Maryanne Hall for Viva!'s Vegan Recipe Club ( Serves4| Prep15 mins| Cook40 mins| Calories262(per serving)

500-600g (3 cups) floury potatoes (such as Maris Piper or King Edwards), peeled, cut into 2.5cm

(1in) cubes olive oil, to fry/roast

1 onion, finely diced

1 garlic clove, finely chopped

1-2 fresh chillies, deseeded and finely diced

1 x 400g tin (1¾ cups) of chopped tomatoes

½ tsp salt

2 tsp sweet smoked paprika

½ tsp sugar or syrup (such as agave or maple)

1 tbsp red wine vinegar a handful of fresh parsley or chives for decoration


200g (¾ cup) vegan mayo

2 garlic cloves, crushed

¾ tbsp lemon juice a pinch of cayenne pepper a pinch of salt

1 Preheat the oven to 200°C/Gas Mark 6 or, instead of roasting the potatoes, parboil them for 7 minutes, drain and then fry until crisp and golden – either way works well.

2 If roasting, place the potatoes on a baking tray with a little oil and salt and pop in the oven for 40 minutes (or until crisp and golden), turning once.

3 While the potatoes are cooking, fry the onion in a small amount of olive oil until soft and golden.

4 Add the chilli and garlic and fry for a further minute.

5 Stir through the tinned tomatoes, sugar, salt and smoked paprika. Bring to the boil and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the mixture is thicker and has reduced down.

6 Stir in the vinegar and then taste the sauce, adjusting the seasoning if necessary.
