Spanish-style Bread and Vegetable Stir Fry (Migas)

A great way to use up stale bread in a traditional Spanish home cooking style.

Recipe By: Julia (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/371)
Serves 1 Prep: 10 min Cook: 15 min

Ingredients

Bread 2 handfuls
Water 100-150ml
Olive oil 4 tbsp
Garlic 1 clove
Onion 1/2
Chorizo 60-70g
Vegetables a handful
Paprika 1 tbsp
Turmeric 1 tsp
Cayenne pepper 1/2 tsp
Salt & pepper as required
Egg 1

Method

1
Break the stale bread into small pieces and put in a bowl. Pour in the water and leave to soak for 10 minutes.
2
Put 2 tbsp olive oil in a large frying pan and add the finely chopped garlic. Turn the heat to medium and add the finely chopped onion and chorizo.
3
When the onion has softened, add the bread from Step 1 and fry to evaporate the liquid. Break down the bread with a wooden spoon to make small pieces.
4
If you have frozen mixed vegetables, add them here (if they're fresh, finely chop and add at Step 2).
5
Add 2 more tbsp olive oil and fry further. Season with paprika, cayenne pepper and turmeric and fry.
6
Season with salt & pepper and transfer to a serving dish. Top with a half cooked fried egg, it's ready to serve.

Tips & Note

Use spicy chorizo if you can to add to the flavour. For greater depth of taste, add some other chopped sausages. It's a good recipe to use up any leftovers, and of course, stale bread!
