Spanish Tortilla

One of the easiest meals to make when you feel like a little flair but without the effort, is a Spanish Tortilla. The BF and I have travelled fairly extensively around Spain and as a gf traveller, the tortilla which can be found in most tapas bars is often a life saver. I think there is something about Spanish cooking which just translates for those on a gf diet. It’s all about the ingredients, there is no fuss and pretension and sourcing is often local an honest. To be fair, not all Spainish food is friendly, I have found it to be one of the places easiest to travel around.

So here is my version of the Spanish classic.

6 eggs
1 onion
2 large potatoes
1 chorizo cooking sausage
1 bag of rocket
Olive oil

Start by chopping the onion , then roughly dice the potatoes. Slice the chorizo. Put the potatoes in a pot of boiling water and cook through. In the meantime, put the onion in a pan with a dash of olive oil and stir for a couple of minutes. Add the sliced chorizo until browned. Add the potatoes to the onion and chorizo and cook for a couple of minutes so that the potato absorb the flavour of the oil. Beat the eggs and add a dash of water to lighten the mix. Turn the heat on low and add the eggs, cook for about 5-8 minutes until the bottom half is cooked through. Then pop it in the oven on 200 degrees and leave in until the top has browned. Serve with a side of rocket dressed in olive oil.
