I love a one pan wonder. I love a Spanish Tortilla.
Some of the best things in life are made with the simplest of ingredients.
The marriage of those flavours can take you back to the first time you tried them, (maybe perched in a little inner city cafe?) On a jaunt around the world (Madrid anyone?) Or simply because you always put potatoes into your ommlette, because (like me) you love need a carb fest too.
There’s always room in life for stand alone recipes, (for which) your pantry ingredients can come to the rescue.
Example, “I had a … busy week & the only ingredients we have left in my fridge/pantry (before I wake up and go to the supermarket again) are…” 2 x potatoes, 3 eggs, 1 onion…
Or, best friends are coming by for a brunch at home and I forgot to shop…whaaat? the only things I have left are…2 potatoes, eggs and 1 onion….and hopefully booze!
Well you get the picture. This could happen and if you’re a busy person in a general frenzy throughout the week, you need easy food days too!
So what kind of prep can you expect from a dish like this. You could expect to simply peel a couple of potatoes. Salt them generously, chop an onion and beat an egg, or two, or three.
Even better, this recipe can be used to mix it up with any other delicious leftovers or lone veg in your fridge or pantry too. Carrots? For sure. Sweet potato or Pumpkin, absolutely.
Will it still be Spanish, err perhaps not. Will it still be tasty? You can be certain!
2 x medium sized potatoes,
3 x whole eggs, larger the better,
1 brown onion diced,
salt to taste
olive oil, as needed.
