So not the case this time. Sometimes it is nice to go fancy in the kitchen. In such cases quite often the wallet doesn’t appreciate it as much… Therefore I love this new trend of cooking with the locally found ingredients and re-inventing the traditional recipes. The Spanish omelette may not be much of the re-invention of something traditional and local, but those who don’t like to waste any food or food leftovers most probably will appreciate it.
There is something special about Sundays – you can sleep in all you want, do whatever you want without being guilty of not accomplishing much on this special day that even the Bible tells to celebrate. I especially love those Sundays when the whole family is together and the greatest joy on such a day is to prepare a tasty and hearty breakfast or much rather brunch.
So once upon a time… I mean – One Sunday not so long ago… Found some day old boiled potatoes in the fridge and decided to make something filling, tasty and very very simple – the Spanish omelette!
* Boiled potatoes
* 4-5 eggs
* A handful of fresh spinach
* 1-2 tomatoes
* A pinch of grated nutmeg
Besides the boiled potatoes and the eggs, go creative.
Slice the potatoes and lay them in a round oven pan. Whisk the eggs with the salt, pepper and a pinch of nutmeg, add chopped tomatoes and torn up spinach. Pour the mass over potatoes and bake in the oven in 160-180 degrees for about 20-30 minutes or until the eggs are set.
It truly is that simple!
