Patatas Bravas (Slimming World friendly)

Hola! Back from my lovely holiday in Spain so thought I'd try cooking some Spanish inspired recipes and make them Slimming World friendly.

I was lucky enough to be staying in a villa while we were away and so got to buy the most gorgeous fruit and veg from the local markets, This recipe although it uses tinned tomatoes tastes of sunshine  and Spain to me. I served it with a side salad and a grilled chicken breast but it would also be good as a side dish with a steak or even some sausages (the HECK smoky paprika ones would be tasty).

It's very easy to make, Hope you enjoy it.

Patatas Bravas

500g new potatoes (peeled and cut into small cubes)
1 tin chopped tomatoes
1 small onion (chopped)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 - 1/2 tsp dried chili flakes (depends how spicy you like it)
low calorie spray oil

Preheat the oven to Gas 7/ 220/425 then place the cubed potatoes on a roasting tin and spray with the oil and place in the oven for 45 minutes until roasted turning them over halfway through and spraying again if necessary.

While the potatoes are roasting take a frying pan and spray with oil and add the chopped onion, Cook gently over a lowish heat until the onion is soft. Add the tin of tomatoes, chili flakes, salt and paprika and stir well. Simmer over a low-medium heat for 20-30 minutes stirring occasionally until the sauce has reduced and is thick.

Take the potatoes out of the oven and sprinkle lightly with salt. Pour the sauce into a dish and place the potatoes on top.

Serves 4 as a side dish or 2 hungry people :)
