A Spanish Patatas Bravas Recipe a la little effort

Submitted by JDiazAsper on 10/02/2010 – 9:21 pm9 Comments

I just love Patatas Bravas, which translates to brave potatoes. A traditional recipe is usually fried and served with a tomato sauce. A very tasty dish but takes awhile to cook.

I make a fast Patatas Bravas inspired dish which is simple and it’s a bit healthier because it’s not fried. These are great as a tapas and even good for breakfast with eggs. My kids love this one.


  • 3 potatoes
  • 1.5 Tbsp parika
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil


  1. Heat oil in pan
  2. Chop the potatoes in cubes and cover in the herbs
  3. Put in pan and cook on high heat for about 2 mins
  4. Lower heat, cover and cook for about 15 mins
  5. Sprinkle basil leaves and extra pepper

Serve with a plate of cheese and ham, add some bread and it’s an instant tapas party.  Don’t forget the Rioja or make some Sangria!
