Ingredients for the dish
  • 2 precooked mini baguettes
  • 1 scotch bonnet
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 50g leek
  • 1 tomato tin
  • Vegetable oil
  • Dry basil
  • Salt

Method:

Peel the potato and cut it very finely. Cut the leek, onion and garlic too, set aside.

Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a saucepan, fry chopped onion and potato until brown, then, add the leek and 3 chopped garlic to wilt, stirring continuously for 1 minute.

Now pour in the tomatoes and add the scotch bonnet. Also add in 200ml of water and cover for 20 minutes. What we are looking for here is for the potatoes pieces to be completely soft. After that, blend the content of the pan while it is still hot.

ARENAFor the bread, preheat the oven at 180C.
