Smashed potato with patatas bravas sauce

I'm not the biggest fan of potato but these are amazing. They're crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.

Smashed potato

It's very simple, you boil small potatoes until cooked. Then smash with a fork, dab with a mix of butter and oil, season with salt and bake until goldenbrown.

You do need to take your time for this becauce even though the potatoes are cooked, it takes quite some time for them to become crispy.

Patatas bravas sauce

For the sauce just puree all the ingredients, then bake in a pot until the raw onion taste is gone. Let it cool off and that's it! It's a very rich flavoured sauce.
