Author Notes: Spanish tapas, or small plates, are all the rage, and you’ll almost always find an omelet on the menu at a tapas bar. Ours is heart-healthy with a variety of vegetables including low calorie eggplant, anti-oxidant rich zucchini and fresh mushrooms. Serve tapas-style in small squares, or in wedges with a fruit salad for a complete meal.Susan E. Levy
