Peasant food fit for a peasant…
Here’s last night’s dinner! A ‘hash’ of sweet potatoes, fried salami and German sausage, plenty of onions, chilli and olive oil. All finished with a generous splodge of Geman curry ketchup!
Variations abound when it comes to cooking hash, I could have added chick peas, butter beans or most other types of vegetable really but this combination seemed to make sense.
A left over sweet potato was diced and par boiled with some chopped dried chilli. In a frying pan I slow cooked chunks of onion until soft and sweet, in went the sausage. You can’t beat fried Geman smoked bockwurst, it’s amazing. I added some dried summer savory herb but you could add thyme, chives, parsley, marjoram, it’s up to you.
Once these were all well fried I added the potatoes, seasoned the lot and piled it in a bowl. Very nice it was too!
Obviously you can use white potatoes or chunks of other vegetables such as swede or parsnip instead, the great thing about hash is that there shouldn’t be any hard and fast rules. Just use up what you have!
