Easy1 h.For 2 people


  • 2 potatoes
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 tomato slices
  • 1 pumpkin slice
  • 4 buds of canons
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon parsley
  • 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • 10 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • salt flakes Maldon


  1. We wash the potatoes and put them in a saucepan, pour water until they are covered and we cook them. Once cooked, we go through cold water, peel and reserve.
  2. We cut a slice of pumpkin 1/2 cm thick, we salt it, we grill it and we also reserve it.
  3. Wash the tomato, cut 2 slices of 1 cm and also reserve.
  4. Peel the avocado, cut it into cubes and reserve it again.
  5. Put the potatoes in a bowl, the skins a little with the help of a fork until you get a thick puree, toss the avocado and add the oil, chopped parsley, garlic powder and a teaspoon of salt and mix well.
  6. We make a vinaigrette with the oil, vinegar and mustard, mix vigorously until emulsified and reserve for the end.
  7. To make the kettledrum, we take a plate, put the slice of pumpkin and, on this, a slice of tomato. Place a hoop to place on top and in this we put the potato and avocado mixture and press a little so that it does not dismantle when removing the hoop. We remove the ring very carefully and, on the mixture, put the other slice of tomato and, on it, a few canons.
  8. Finally, sprinkle a little salt in flakes (very little) and sprinkle a spoonful of the vinaigrette that we had reserved.

  • If you use "old fashioned" Dijon mustard (granulated), you will have enough with half a teaspoon, since its flavor is more intense.
  • When you reserve the avocado, you can take a little lemon juice so it does not get dark.
