Vegetable Chilli Jacket Potato

Vegetable Chilli Jacket Potato

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.
