Patatas Bravas

Here is the recipe for the potatoes and the aioli sauce we made last Friday. Everything was pretty much eyeballed so I tried to put an approximate measurement.

Potatoes

  1. Peel and cube the potatoes. This recipe makes about 2 medium potatoes, so taste as you go.
  2. Boil them in salted water (make the water like the ocean) till soft. The potatoes should be soft enough so that your knife can pierce through the potato smoothly but not fall apart. You are not making mashed potatoes.
  3. Pour potatoes and water into a strainer and then put the potatoes back into the pot and toss to make sure they are dried out. The heat will make the water evaporate.
  4. Once the potatoes are dry, put them into a mixing bowl.
  5. Taste them. If you feel like they are not salty enough add salt.
  6. Spice them with a little pepper, about 1/2 tsp paprika or smoked paprika (if you use smoked paprika, it will be very potent, so be careful), 1/4 tsp of cumin (optional), and some cayenne pepper if you like spice. Add each spice little at a time and taste as you go.
  7. Add about 1/2 tsp of corn starch and toss or mix with hands.
  8. Put the potatoes on an oiled baking tray or with parchment paper. Bake them at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
  9. Check-in on them making sure they don’t burn. You want them crispy. If not crispy yet, bake them for another 5 minutes.
  10. Alternative: you can put the potatoes in an air fryer if you have one.

Aioli

  1. Scoop out as much mayo as you think you will need. This is your base.
  2. Mince garlic. (I used 1/2 a garlic for 1 TBSP of Mayo, but this depends on how garlicky you want.
  3. Add red wine vinegar or lemon juice. Add in little by little for preference.
  4. Mix in salt, pepper, smoked paprika, and cayenne pepper if you like it spicy.
  5. Remember to taste everything as you go to make sure you get it to your desired taste.

Have Fun!

Hi FLOW,

Upon many requests, we will be cooking this time instead of baking… Kinda.

We will be making Patatas Bravas which is crispy Spanish potatoes with sauce. Please make sure you have the following ingredients for Friday.

Ingredients:
2 medium-sized potatoes or 1 large potato
salt
pepper
paprika or smoked paprika
cumin (optional)
cayenne pepper (if you like your food spicy)
corn starch
Mayonaise
Garlic (depending on how garlicky you like, I would say max 4 cloves)
lemon juice or red wine vinegar

Tools:
Stove
Mixing bowls
Oven
Knife
Potato peeler
Spoons
Pots
cutting board
measuring spoon
baking tray

If you want you can peel and cut your potatoes beforehand but I will be doing it with everyone as well. If you do choose to peel and cut them before, cut them into 1-inch cubes. If you choose to do this the night before, put them in cold water and in the fridge.

We will be meeting on Zoom at 7:30.

See you all Friday,
