As you can see from the recipes on this blog by now, I’m not really into salads, raw smoothies or raw anything. Well there’s a time and place for those kinds of food but it sure ain’t in this post!

I saw a bag of potatoes at Tesco’s the other day and thought that a baked potato for lunch for the Easter long weekend sounded like quite a good idea. Nothing like a good carb fix in the form of a baked potato and oozy cheese! So I picked up some chorizo, sour cream and spring onions – and that’s it! I was good to go. You can make this as healthy (or as sinful) as you like. For instance, switch out the sour cream for fat free yogurt, or ditch the chorizo for some fresh mince. Also, the white wine vinegar will help cut through the heaviness of the potato and sour cream and will add a nice bright note to the dish.

Easy (Sinful/Healthy) Baked Potato
for 4 people


4 medium potatoes
120g chorizo
Melty cheese to sprinkle on
3-4T of sour cream
2 stalks of spring onion
4 cloves of garlic
2T butter
1t white wine vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Boil the potatoes in a pot.
  2. Meanwhile, mince the garlic, slice the spring onions finely and dice the chorizo into 0.5cm cubes.
  3. Fry the garlic, spring onion and chorizo in butter over a low heat until the flavour of the garlic infuses into the butter. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. When the potatoes are soft enough for you to pierce a knife through easily, drain them. Then cut the potatoes in half and arrange on a baking dish.
  5. Sprinkle the cheese over the potato halves and place the dish under a grill until the cheese melts.
  6. Mix the vinegar with the sour cream, and add salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Spoon the sour cream mixture over the potatoes, then pour on the garlic butter chorizo mix.
