June 20, 2012 in Uncategorized
This week I have the pleasure of talking to Jade de Waal, the bubbly, exuberant and boisterous contestant in South Africa’s first ever Masterchef Competition….
If you wan to listen the interview, tune into RSG( 100-104FM) tomorrow ( Thursday) morning, just after the 9 o’clock news or listen here online!
Chorizo and Potato Snack
4 large potatoes – boiled with skins on
1 chorizo sausage
½ t smoked chili flakes
1 large red onion – chopped finely
125 ml grated Emmentaler cheese
Heat a skillet or pan on the stove and add the chopped up chorizo to the pan. After a while the chorizo will render some delicious smokey oil in which you can fry the onion and tomatoes. Add the smoked chili flakes. Cook for 3-4 minutes until the onions and tomatoes have softened up. In the meantime, cut your potatoes in a criss-cross and give them a squeeze to make a nice bed for the lovely chorizo sauce. Scatter some cheese over the potatoes and then the hot sauce and finish off with some more grated cheese and shome chopped coriander.
A Delicious light lunch or pick-me-up afternoon snack!
Cook’s Notes – For a healthier option, leave out the chorizo and just use ½ t smoked paprika when frying the onions and add 3 chopped tomatoes. I also added some baby spinach for extra flavor and texture. For a “lighter option” cheese, try Edam.
