Step 1: You will need:

  • 500 g potatoes, peeled and sliced into pieces 1cm thick
  • 300 ml olive oil
  • 1/2 red pepper, diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 2 tbsp of parsley, chopped
  • some salt and pepper
  • 1 frying pan
  • 1 wooden spoon
  • 1 sieve
  • 1 bowl

Step 2: Cook the potatoes

Put the potatoes into the frying pan. Add the olive oil and let it heat up. Cook for roughly 15 minutes until the potatoes are tender. Once cooked, strain them into the sieve, with a bowl below to catch the oil and set aside.

Step 3: Finish the potatoes

Pour in a little of the oil from the potatoes into the frying pan. Add the red peppers and let them sweat for a couple of minutes. Add the garlic and stir it in. Sweat the garlic for a minute or two. Return the cooked potatoes to the pan and season with salt and pepper. Toss the pan or shake it to mix everything together. Add the parsley and shake or toss the pan, once more, to combine all the ingredients.

Step 4: Serve

Dish up while still hot. It makes a perfect side dish for anything that goes well with potatoes.
