Sweet Potato and Chorizo Hash

Serves 2

Total Price: £3.20

This recipe is one of my favourites and easily serves two for dinner. It takes next to no time to whip up. Any leftovers taste excellent the next afternoon for lunch. It’s a twist on the normal hash which is made with ordinary potatoes and bacon. If you’re feeling particularly flush, you can serve this along with a salad. And with your change from your fiver £3.20, I think you can afford to.

What you need:

1 kg Sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed and par-boiled. (£1.44)

1/2 stick of chorizo sausage – not the pre sliced stuff – sliced to the thickness of pound coins. (£2.00for whole stick so £1.00)

2 red onions- diced. (£0.38)

1 clove of garlic, crushed. (£0.30 a bulb, so about £0.05 for a clove)

2 eggs. (£1 for 6, currently on offer in Morrisons = £0.33ish for 2)

2 tablespoons of tomato puree. (I’m going to assume you’ve already got this somewhere.)

1 tablespoon of vegetable oil – or whatever oil you have to hand.

What you do with it:

1. Heat the oil and add the onions and garlic in a frying pan. Sweat until the onions are translucent. Watch you don’t burn the garlic.

2. Add the chorizo and cook until it starts to give out a red oil and the chorizo is softened.

3. Add the sweet potatoes and fry until brown and crispy around the edges.

4. Add the tomato puree and stir into the ingredients.

5. Crack the eggs into the pan over the ingredients and cook to your liking. Put under the grill if you need to cook further on top
