Spanish Tortilla Recipe from Waste2Taste
We’ve asked our restaurants, cafes, grocers and food producers to share some recipes with us to keep you eating delicious and seasonal food throughout lock-down.
The wonderful Sandra and Marie at Waste2Taste have provided us with this delicious, quick and easy Spanish Tortilla recipe. Ideal to have hot for dinner with salad or cold in a packed lunch when you go for your next social distance picnic.
This dish is really simple, so yummy and ideal for using up other types of veg if you don’t have or like peppers. I like to add a garnish of chopped spring onions, serve with a fresh rocket salad and sometimes as a nice chunk of crusty bread. ENJOY!!
For 6/8 portions
3 medium potatoes – halved & thinly sliced
2 medium onions
1 bunch fresh herbs (you can use what you like here – parsley, tarragon, chives)
Salt & pepper
Good quality olive oil
- Preheat the oven to 200 Degrees / Gas Mark 6.
- Prepare a oven proof dish with non stick paper (wet the paper first as it makes it easier to mold to the dish).
- Add potatoes, onions & peppers sliced thinly in layers. Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with a bit of olive oil.
- Cook low in the oven for about 20 min or so to cook the vegetables.
- In a bowl whisk together the eggs, salt, pepper to your taste and the fresh herbs thinly chopped (I like tarragon)
- Give the eggs a little whisk, pour on top of the cooked veg and gently press to distribute throughout the pan. Add more eggs if you think it needs.
- Put in the oven until the egg is cooked. Watch it carefully so doesn’t burn.
- Transfer to a serving platter.
- Serve warm with a salad or eat cold for breakfast, lunch or dinner!
