Sweet Potato, Chorizo & Chickpea Hash

Sweet Potato, Chorizo & Chickpea Hash

One more recipe with eggs cracked on top. Just one, I promise, this is the last one. For now. I think.

Can’t help myself, I love sumptuous dishes where the eggs are cooked along with the rest of the food making it look wonderful, plus, and this is important; you get to dip bread in runny yolks. Bread and runny yolks are always +1.

This recipe combines eggs with flavourful and smokey chorizo, mellow sweet potatoes and chickpeas with just a hint of cumin and curry. Easy and delicious.

 

Ingredients:

7 oz Spanish chorizo
1 pound sweet potatoes
1 15oz can chickpeas
1 large onion
4 large eggs
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp curry madras
salt and pepper
parsley for garnish
1 tbsp oil

 
Directions:

* Preheat your oven to 200C° (400F°).

Couldn’t find the orange potatoes. Not fond of their white counterparts; they oxidize too fast to my liking.

Peel and chop them and parboil them for about 8 minutes, until tender. Drain well.

While the sweet potatoes are happily boiling, you peel and cube the chorizo.

Chop your onion as well. Lots of chopping going on here.

Add the chorizo and give it another 3 minutes.

Add the drained potatoes and stir well. The oil from the chorizo will flavour the potatoes.

Transfer the whole shebang to an oven dish unless you can place your skillet in the oven.

Here we go: crack 4 eggs on top. Man, I love this. Sprinkle a little salt on top of the eggs.

Place in a preheated oven and bake at 200C° (400F°) for 7 to 10 minutes, until the egg-whites have set and the yolks are still runny. Garnish with parsley or coriander.
 

Serve with lots of crusty bread and a big bowl of fresh, colourful cherry tomatoes.

Meatballs in Mushroom Sauce

I’m a little late to the party, I know, but Happy New Year, everyone! We had a wonderful holiday and spent Christmas and New Years Eve with tons of family and friends. We had a, get this, Christmas BBQ! Which is crazy with our Dutch winters, but it was seven kinds of awesome. Why didn’t I think of it sooner?! I also did what few other bloggers do during December;…
