Frittata of Potato, Chorizo, Caramelized Onion & Black Olives

Frittata

Serves 4

Preparation time: 15 minutes Cooking time: 25 minutes

 

500 grams brushed white potatoes, peeled and halved

1 teaspoon coconut oil

200 grams mild chorizo,

sliced 1 large brown onion, quartered and sliced

4 tablespoons olive oil

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

12 black, semi-dried olives or Spanish olives, pitted and chopped

6 eggs

sea salt

ground black pepper, chopped parsley, to serve

 

Place the potatoes in a small saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil and cook, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Strain, rinse under cold water and thinly slice.

While the potatoes are cooking, heat the coconut oil in a deep frying pan over medium heat. Add the chorizo and cook for 2–3 minutes on each side, until browned. Remove to a plate and reserve the chorizo fat and juices in the pan. Once the chorizo has cooled down, dice it roughly.

Add the onion and olive oil to the frying pan and cook over low–medium heat for 5–7 minutes, stirring a few times, until soft and golden. Add the garlic, sliced potato, chopped olives and chorizo, and stir through.

In a bowl, whisk and season the eggs with a generous pinch of sea salt and some black pepper. Pour over the potatoes and rotate the pan to spread the egg mixture evenly. Cover with a lid and cook over medium heat for 3–4 minutes until cooked through the bottom half. Pop the pan under a hot grill for a further 3 minutes, until golden brown on top. Sprinkle the chopped parsley over the top to serve.
