Author Notes

Tortilla de patatas or spanish omelet is a wonderful dish, one that can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner. We usually have it for dinner with a generous dollop of greek yogurt and a bowl of seasonal salad. Even though it is made with potatoes and eggs, it is still light and full of lovely flavor. We love to add spinach, to make it even better, but you can leave that part out or add something more spicy, like chorizo or red peppers. Enjoy, bon appetite. —jernejkitchen
