I was served this at a neighbours house and really liked it, as always the Canarian people are always pleased that you want to try their recipes, so paper and pen were provided and below is what I was told, all their recipes are pasted down from one generation to another, so it's difficult to get any weights, they just tell you a hand full of this and a pinch of that....
This is a Canarian Dish, made from left overs, so it works well if you use the basic recipe, but add what ever vegetables you have. I have made this and worked out the quantities to my families liking, it's very adjustable.
4 Hard Boiled Eggs
2/3 Cloves of Garlic
1 Medium Sized Bunch of Parsley
2tbs Olive Oil
5cm Chorizo ( or peices of bacon or sausage)
1 Bay Leaf
Salt to Taste
Peel and Slice the potatoes.
Slice the Hard Boiled Eggs
Put 1 tbs of Olive oil in A shallow frying pan and sauté the potato slices until just turning a golden colour.
In a saucepan, place alternate layers of the potato and egg slices, starting with the potato.
Chop chorizo into very small cubes.
Chop onion, finely.
Peel and chop finely the garlic and parsley and pound together.
Heat the remaining olive oil in the frying pan.
Gently fry the chorizo, onion and Garlic/parsley until well blended.
If you have any other vegetables, chop them into small pieces and fry gently with the above.
When well blended add to the saucepan containing the potatoes and egg.
Add bay leaf
Pour water over the mixture.
Add salt to taste.
Simmer for 10 to 15 minutes.
The above serves 4 people.
Also works well if grated cheese is sprinkled on top before serving.
Serve with warm crusty bread .
