Patatas a lo pobre: Poor man´s potatoes
Patatas a lo pobre is a classic Andalucían dish that can be served either as tapas, or to accompany a wide variety of fish and chicken dishes.
I have my own version that I sometimes cook in the microwave, using less olive oil than in the traditional way of cooking in a frying pan. It is just as delicious!
Ingredients (adjust according to taste/numbers):
Green peppers (Italian), sliced
Red pepper, sliced (I just add a small amount for the colour)
Salt and pepper
Extra virgin Olive oil
Layer the ingredients into a glass Pyrex-type dish, drizzle with olive oil, cover with pierced cling-film and microwave on full power for approximately 20 minutes (or until potatoes are cooked). I usually check about halfway through, give it a little mix around and add more olive oil if I feel I need to.
Have you ever tried cooking tapas, at home?
