Berenjenas con MielBy tapasonlineFried aubergine with honey - In Andalusia it is normally made with miel de caña, a type of molasses. If you can manage to find some, or a suitable substitute like black treacle, it will also make the dish vegan. You can use either round slices or batons for this recipe - both are used in Spain. It is best served immediately, but can be re-heated in the oven.
Gambas Salteadas con Sobrasada de MallorcaBy tapasonlineKing prawns sautéed with Majorcan sobrasada - This is a very impressive dish, so buy the largest and best quality king prawns you can find. Sobrasada (there are both mild and slightly spicy versions) is availabe from specialist delis and online suppliers.
Pimientos de Padrón Rellenos de QuesoBy tapasonlinePadrón peppers stuffed with cheese - the recipe uses tetilla because it is produced in Galicia, like the peppers, but any soft cheese will be fine. As an alternative to frying, you can cook the peppers on a baking sheet in a hot oven if you prefer.
ChurrosBy tapasonlineChurros, a type of fried dough, are often thought of as a dessert, but in Spain they are more of a breakfast item or a snack; on the go in a paper cone or in a café or specialist churreria, with coffee or thick hot chocolate. You can use a pastry bag with a star nozzle to make them or you can buy a churrera.
Pollo con Calabacín y FrijolesBy tapasonlineChicken with courgette, beans and sobrasada - chicken thighs are traditional, but if you don't like bones, you can use boneless thighs or chicken fillet. The recipe uses butterbeans, but almost any bean can be used as an alternative variation.
Calabacines Empanados con QuesoBy tapasonlineBreaded courgettes with cheese - whilst best served as soon as they are ready, they will actually keep for a day in a sealed container in the 'fridge, to be re-heated later. Get the largest courgette(s) you can find and If you have some powdered cheese, this will make it easier to distribute, but a finely grated hard cheese like Manchego or Parmesan should be fine.
Chistorra con Pimientos del PiquilloBy tapasonlineChistorra sausage with piquillo peppers - piquillo peppers normally come in tins, but if they are not available, you can substitute a red pepper, roasted and peeled.
Chistorra con PatatasBy tapasonlineChistorra sausage with potatoes and egg - this dish is similar to the classic patatas con chorizo, except for the addition of the egg. If you are making a few dishes, the chistorra and potatoes will sit happily in the bottom of the oven and the eggs can be added just before service.
Chistorra a la SidraBy tapasonlineChistorra sausage cooked in cider - chorizo, especially mini chorizos, may be substituted for the chistorra in this simple, but tasty dish. It should really be made with Spanish cider from Asturias, but any dry cider will be fine.
