So this is more typically a game day recipe for soccer than football, but it's so good it needs to cross cultures! Potatoes with spicy sauce - got to be good, right?!

Healthier patatas bravas


  • 1 1/2lb potatoes
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ medium onion
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ⅛ tsp cumin
  • 2 tbsp white wine
  • 3/4cup chopped tomatoes


  1. Preheat oven to 400F/200C. Peel the potatoes and dice into bite-size chunks. Toss the chunks of potato in 2tbsp oil and sprinkle with a little salt in a roasting dish so they are in one layer. Once the oven is ready, roast for around 40min, turning once, until they are lightly golden.
  2. Meanwhile make the bravas sauce (alternatively you can make it ahead and keep refrigerated). Cut the onion into a fine dice and finely chop the garlic. Start warming the oil in a skillet/frying pan and add the onion before it has become hot. Cook for around 5min until softening then add the garlic. Cook another approx 10min until it is starting to color but not burning (if it looks like it might, reduce heat and add a little oil if needed).
  3. Add the cayenne, paprika and cumin and cook a minute before adding the wine - take care it may splutter a little - and tomatoes then simmer for around 10-15min until it has reduced a little. Blend the sauce until smooth and leave to cool.
  4. When the potatoes are ready, remove from oven. Serve the potatoes with the sauce on the side or drizzled over the top.
