So we already know I like carbs. In particular I like fried potato. They make everything better. I’ve been craving a delicious, warm, cozy and cheap meal like this. Let’s face it, we need it with this “second winter” and Brexit.
If you’re looking for a quick yet satisfying meal this is definitely a dish to consider. The crispy potatoes combined with colourful mediterranean vegetables and flavours have made this a culinary staple for me. It’s great for using up those leftover vegetables in your fridge. Best of all, this easy and cheap stovetop meal serves 4 for less than £6.50 in 30 minutes! It’s also great for meal prep lunches for most of the week.
4 Vegan Italian style sausages cut into slices
2 Medium potatoes – skin on and diced into 2cm chunks
1 Leek – thoroughly washed and sliced
1 pepper – Chopped into 2cm chunks
1 clove garlic – minced
1tsp dried oregano
10-15 black olives
Salt and Pepper
Chopped parsley to finish
- Place a large frying pan or skillet on a medium high heat and add a little olive oil. Allow the oil to heat and then add the diced potatoes.
- Cook the potatoes evenly while stirring occasionally for 15 minutes until cooked through and browned on all sides.
- When the potatoes are tender and crispy remove them from the heat. Decant and place aside.
- Next on a medium heat fry the sausage until browned and cooked through, about 5 minutes. Place aside with the potatoes.
- Keeping the pan on a medium-high heat add a little more oil to the pan and add the chopped peppers. Allow to soften for 1 minute. Next fry the leek and cook for a further 5 minutes stirring occasionally so they don’t stick. Add the garlic and stir.
- Add the cooked potatoes and sausage back into the pan along with the olives and the oregano. Stir to combine and season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Serve the hash garnished with the freshly chopped parsley.
