Spanish Tortilla with Chorizo

Submitted by: SKINICOOK

Introduction

Simple but impressive looking dish. Can be done in the oven and made in advance, ready to be re-heated when required. I made it for a Spanish tapas themed night where we all had to bring a dish and it went down very well with everyone. Simple but impressive looking dish.

Ingredients

    2 tbps Olive Oil
    3 small to medium potatoes peeled and diced
    1 medium onion finely chopped
    1 red bell pepper quartered, de-seeded and thinly sliced
    150g chorizo sliced (this can be reduced to save calories if required)
    2 fat cloves of garlic crushed and minced
    5 eggs (UK large) whisked and seasoned
    75g frozen peas thawed
    75g broccoli chopped into florets
    75g green beans
    Spray Oil
    1/2 tsp paprika

Tips

Can also be finished in the pan instead of the oven. To cook in the pan just add the eggs to the pan and cook over a medium heat for about 10 mins. You might want to give it a couple of minutes under the grill to finish it off.


Directions

1. Heat oil in a large frying pan and preheat oven to gas mark 6. Add the potatoes to the pan and cook over medium heat for 5 mins. Add onions and cook for further 5 mins. While these are cooking, blanch the broccoli and green beans boiling water for 5 mins. Drain and set aside.

2. When the onions and potatoes have softened, add the garlic and the paprika to the pan. Let this cook for one minute to release the flavour. Now add the chorizo, green beans, broccoli, pepper and peas. Cook for around 5 mins.

3. Spray the spray oil on the oven dish to prevent sticking and add the vegetable mixture to the dish. Cover with the whisked eggs and stir to combine everything. Bake in the oven for around 15 - 20 minutes or until the tortilla has fully set.
