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):

Potatoes, sliced

Onions, sliced

Garlic, chopped

Green peppers (Italian), sliced

Red pepper, sliced  (I just add a small amount for the colour)

Salt and pepper

Mixed herbs

Olive oil

Layer the ingredients into a glass Pyrex-type dish, cover with pierced cling-film and microwave on full power for approximately 20 minutes (or until potatoes are cooked).

Que aproveche!
