Vegetable Chilli Jacket Potato

Vegetable Chilli Jacket Potato
jacket potato, baked potato, cheese potato topping, potato filling, chilli jacket, vegetarian, vegetarian chilli

Smooth Dolcelatte, feisty Sunblush tomatoes, this jacket potato has the taste of the Mediterranean bursting out!

Method: 

Scrub the potatoes, then dry and prick each one several times with a sharp knife.

Microwave Method:

Cook one potato (225g/8oz) for 6 minutes on full power (800W), turn half way through cooking. Allow to stand for 1-2 minutes before serving. If cooking more than one potato at a time you need to increase the cooking time accordingly.

Oven Method:

Rub a few drops of olive oil into the potato skin, place the potatoes in a pre-heated oven at 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6 on a baking tray with salt sprinkled around the potato. Bake for 1¼ hours or until soft.

When the potato is almost ready, heat the tins of ratatouille in a saucepan with 1/2 tsp paprika and 2 drops of Tabasco, or more if you like your chilli fiery! Serve on top of the potatoes.

Comments

Nice! I made this and it was great - would use a meat chilli like Stagg next time, hot and spicy potatoes, yum!

Hi Saz,

Thanks for the feedback and yes, meat chilli with a nice dollop of sour cream or some grated cheese sprinkled on top would work a treat too!

Granddaughter 1st year student at Bristol will find this easy and filling. I am always looking for healthy easy meal recipes to send to her. I have supplied her with student card for purchasing food! I hope she is not wasting all of it on alcohol.
