Tapas: Spanish Tortilla
spanish tortilla 
 
this is best eaten warm or at room temperature and can be served for 
lunch, 
supper, or even cut into small pieces and served as tapas. 
 
200 millileters  olive oil
500 potatoes, peeled, rinsed and thinly sliced
2   onions, sliced
6   eggs
1 Tbsp  chopped fresh parsley
  green salad, to serve
 
heat all but two tablespoons of the oil in a deep non-stick 23 to 25 cm 
frying pan. add the potatoes and onions and cook over a medium heat for 
about 15 minutes until tender, but not brown - let the potatoes stew in 
the oil rather than deep fry. drain the potatoes in a metal colander, then 
season with salt. beat the eggs lightly in a large bowl, then mix in the 
potatoes, onions, parsley and salt and pepper, stirring with a fork. add 
the two tablespoons of oil to the frying pan and, when hot, spoon in the 
egg mix and cook for about 10 minutes until just setting. don't overcook 
as the eggs should be a little runny inside. cover the frying pan with a 
large plate, holding it down firmly with the flat of your hand, then 
carefully turn the pan upside down so the omelette turns out on to the 
plate. slide the inverted omelette back into the pan and cook for 5 
minutes. serve hot or at room temperature with a green salad.
