You can soak the peas in some water with salt and sugar, though this is not really necessary. Slice the carrots, peas, onions and garlic. Chop the chives, parsley and thyme. Dice the paprika. Now spice up the potatoes with the dried paprika powder, onion powder, chives, pepper and salt.

Cooking it

Heat up the pan with some olive or rape oil. Preferably a pan that allows dripping of fluids over time, such as some saute pans. Make sure it is preheated on low fire for long enough with the lid on. Add the spiced potatoes and stir fry for a while on high fire till they are starting to get golden/brown. Add the peas and carrot and turn the fire low and put the lid on the pan. If you have a pan that allows you to add (white) wine via the lid (so it will drip in over time), you can optionally do so now (or add some before closing the lid). After 5 to 10 minutes on low fire, turn the heat back up and add half of your sliced onions and half of your sliced garlic, stir fry the onions well and put the lid back on and the fire back on low. Optionally you can slowly cook the onions with garlic in a separate pan and add them later.

Properly heat up the wok with some oil and stir fry the remaining onions, garlic, bacon / lard roes, paprika and optionally the mexican vegetable mix. Stir often and keep the heat on.

Once you think the vegetables are warm enough, add the contents of both pans together. Mix well, add the thyme, parsley and chives.


Try to distribute it over the plate in a way you get a nice colourful display of the bright veggies, the golden brown potatoes and the pink-brownish bacon. Serve with a cold glass of beer or ale.
