Also called tortilla de patata, its probably the most common dish throughout Spain. Eaten as a light dinner or served between a baguette, for us it was a nice change from the constant ham and cheese options. Simple & easy to make, our couchsurfing chef spiced his up with a delicious red pepper sauce. Here’s his recipe for both the tortilla and the sauce:
- 4 medium potatoes
- 3 eggs
- 1/2l olive oil
- onion & green pepper as you like
Peel, cut and fry potatoes on low heat. Remove from heat. Whip eggs and mix with the potatoes and salt. In another fry pan, put a little oil and pour in the egg and potato mixture. Cook and serve.
Red Pepper Ingredients:
- One large tablespoon of paprika
- one spoonful of oregano
- 1 crushed garlic clove
- 1 tablespoon of vinegar
- pinch of salt
- one entire red pepper
- 3 tablespoons of olive oil
Blend all ingredients together. Serve.
