SPANISH OMELETTE / +VEGAN RECIPE (FEBRUARY MENU)


WIKI NOTE: Tortilla in origin meant just "small torte/cake". These dishes are unrelated to the maize or wheat tortilla of Mexico and neighbouring countries, a thin flatbread. In Spanish, this dish is called tortilla de patatas or tortilla española to distinguish it from a plain omelette (tortilla francesa, literally "French omelette").
The Spanish tortilla is the most common gastronomic specialty found throughout Spain. While there are numerous regional variations, the most common version is the one made only with eggs and potatoes, and possibly onion. I love it! It is one of the best tapas to order in a bar.

SPANISH OMELETTE "TORTILLA DE PATATAS"

YOU WILL NEED: *Vegan recipe: eggless Spanish omelette 
2 whole eggs
1 large potato or 2 small potatoes
A quarter of an onion, to taste
Olive oil
Salt , to taste
Broccoli (optional)
Black olives (optional)
Loaf of baguette bread (optional)
NOTE: This a recipe for a small size tortilla (unit for a kid).

LET´S COOK!
1. Peel and chop the potatoes and the onion. Mix the chopped potatoes and onion in a bowl. Add salt, to taste.
2. Fry the potatoes and onion in olive oil until they are soft. Remove with a skimmer and put in a strainer.
3. Beat the eggs in a bowl. Add the fried potatoes and onion and mix everything together.
4. Put the mixture in a small hot pan with a splash of virgin extra olive oil, wait a bit until it curdles and turn it over with a plate. Slide the other side of the tortilla into the pan and wait a bit until it curdle. Turn again if it is necessary. Then the tortilla is ready to eat.
NOTE: You can turn it as many times as you like, until the tortilla is well cooked.

2. How to make the bear face: cut 2 slices of bread (for the eyes), cut 1 slice of bread cut in halves (for the 2 ears), use broccoli florets (for the nose and hair), an olive (for the nose), a medium olive (for the eye)
