Patatas Bravas (Spicy Potatoes!)

I have to confess that potatoes lose me in every way possible; I love them! And the patatas bravas is a classic of our rich gastronomy, so they could not be missing on our blog.

This version is lighter and healthier, has very little fat, and the ingredients are very natural; we have not added colourants, flour, or vinegar and its flavour is spectacular; you cannot miss them!

I was afraid of potatoes for a long time because whenever I was on a diet, they forbade them, but now I eat them whenever I want. 

What makes you fat is not the potatoes, but the way of preparing them (for example, fried) or the sauces we accompany them, which are often very fat.

With this recipe, you will not have any problem because the potatoes are baked and because the sauce is very light, but it is just as rich.

We add a little oil, about four tablespoons, and it is enough for 4-8 people, depending on whether you want a capita or a plate of patatas bravas

For a sauce, a tablespoon of oil is not much. Anyway, if you are on a diet, you can reduce the amount of oil to a teaspoon per person, and I guarantee that it will also be very rich.

You can also serve the patatas bravas with veganism, Veganesa or homemade mayonnaise; we love combining the two sauces (the veganism and the brava sauce).

We love to version traditional recipes and make them healthier and lighter because to eat healthily it is not necessary to give up the flavour of our favourite dishes, it is a matter of adapting them to our needs and making them lighter but just as rich, as with this recipe for potatoes. Braves, it has nothing to envy to the original version!
