Recipe: Mediterranean Potato Bake

Again, sorry for not posting for a while, but it's been a hectic few weeks. I promise from now on you will be inundated by many mant entries, and I will definitely be trying to get more entries and yummy recipes on the blog this year compared to other years. This is a really nice and simple bake i made for me and my boyfriend the other day- pretty tasty and fairly healthy for a potato dish. I served it as a side dish along side a pork loin chop, but it's hearty enough to be a main course in itself, if you so wish.

Mediterranean Potato Bake (serves 4 as a main course, 6 as a side dish)

2 kg potatoes, peeled and sliced thinly
1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 white onion, sliced
1 tsp dried oregano
200ml vegetable stock
Salt and pepper
Fresh basil leaves (for garnish)

1. Preheat the oven to 200C. In a large baking dish, layer the sliced potatoes, and the diced red pepper. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan and fry the sliced onions for about 5 minutes, or until browned.
2. Put fried onions on top of the potatoes with the oregano, vegetable stock, and plenty of seasonin. Cover with aluminium foil and bake in the oven for 50 minutes. Remove from the oven, remove the foil, garnish with fresh basil leaves and serve!
