Smokey Tomato Roast Potatoes (Roast Patatas Bravas)

Delicious garlic roasted potatoes in a rich tomato sauce flavoured with smoked paprika.
Active Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 6 portions


  • 1 kg potatoes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • A few cloves of garlic
  • 2 x 400g chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp tomato pureé - (heaped)
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika - (heaped)
  • 1 tsp red wine vinegar
  • Salt & pepper


  • Pre-heat your oven to 220ºC/200ºC fan.
  • Chop the potatoes (1kg) into bite-sized pieces. Place them into a large baking tray and drizzle them with half the olive oil (1 tbsp). Bash the garlic cloves either in a pestle and mortar or with a rolling pin and add them to the tray. Roast the potatoes for 30 minutes, turning them halfway though their cooking time.
  • While the potatoes are roasting, prepare the smokey tomato sauce. Finely chop the red onion. Heat the remaining oil (1 tbsp) in a medium-sized saucepan, turn the heat to low and and add the chopped onion. Fry for 4-5 minutes until it has softened.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes (2x 400g cans), tomato pureé (1 heaped tbsp), smoked paprika (1 tbsp) & red wine vinegar (1 tsp). Bring to the boil and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Simmer for about 15 minutes until the sauce has thickened and then remove from the heat. Season the sauce with salt and pepper.
  • Once the potatoes have cooked for 30 minutes remove them from the oven and add them to the pan with the potatoes (don't add the garlic cloves). Mix well so the potatoes are coated in the sauce then serve.
