Bubble and squeak is one of God’s finest creations, and one of the essential parts of a proper fry up.
For reference, these are;
- Black pudding
- Hash brown
- Grilled tomato
- Bubble and squeak
- Brown Sauce
Anything further is optional. And I would insist on proper bubble and squeak, as in fried, and with spuds for breakfast.
This option is more for a nice evening meal, as an interesting side. I tend to get healthier as the day goes on!
It’s bloody simple and tasty as hell.
- 500g Sweet Potato
- 150g Kale or trimmed Cavolo Nero
- A wodge of butter or butter type product.
- 1 tbsp. cumin seeds
- 1 tbsp. coriander seeds
- Chilli flakes, to taste
A first for me… use a microwave. Blast the sweet potatoes till they’re soft all the way through. You could steam them. But really… why bother? It’ll take about 8 minutes.
While these are nuked, bake the cumin and coriander seeds for 4 or 5 minutes, till they smell nice.
Once everything is done, put the flesh of the potatoes, kale, baked seeds and butter in a large baking dish and smoosh it all together. Add salt to taste, then bake at about 180c for 20 minutes.
Simple and tasty, a solid weeknight snack or side.
