de patatas is a traditional Spanish egg dish similar
to a French omelet and an Italian frittata. This version
includes potatoes, red onion and green peppers.
or microwave the potatoes for 6 minutes. HEAT the oil
in a frying pan over a medium heat and cook the onion
and green pepper for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
ADD the potato and cook for 2 minutes, stirring to combine.
WHISK the eggs together in a bowl with the parsley, salt
and pepper. POUR the eggs over the vegetables in the pan,
cover, and cook gently over a low heat for 8 minutes.
REMOVE the lid and place under a hot oven broiler (griller)
to cook for a minute or until the top is set. CUT into
wedges to serve.
You can serve wedges of tortilla de patatas warm or
cold (it keeps well, covered and chilled, for 1-2 days).
For a Spanish-style meal, start with a bowl of Gazpacho
and accompany the tortilla with a salad and crusty bread.
