  • 1 Spanish onion finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup roasted red peppers from a jar preferably in oil
  • 1/2 cup artichoke hearts sliced  
  • 1/3 cup black olives
  • 1/4 cup vegetable or vegan chicken-style stock
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 cup good quality olive oil
  • sea salt
  • black pepper
  • parsley finely chopped


  • Put a large pot of water on a medium heat. 
  • Cut the potatoes in to halves. 
  • Cook the potatoes for 10 minutes and strain. 
  • In a heavy-bottomed pan, heat the olive oil on low. 
  • Add the onion and cook for 1 minute. 
  • Add the paprika and oregano and stir. 
  • Place the potatoes, cut side down, in the pan. 
  • Season the potatoes with sea salt and black pepper 
  • Sprinkle the sliced peppers over the potato and then the artichoke hearts.
