    Spinach & asparagus tortilla

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes
    • Total time: 30 minutes 30 minutes

    Serves: 2


    1 Essential Potato, thinly sliced
    1/2 tsp sweet smoked paprika
    2½ tsp olive oil
    3 salad onions, sliced
    ½ x 230g pack asparagus, cut into 2.5cm pieces
    80g spinach
    6 British Blacktail Free Range Medium Eggs, beaten


    1. Bring a medium saucepan of salted water to the boil. Simmer the potato slices for 6-8 minutes, or until tender, then drain and season with salt and the paprika. Meanwhile, preheat the
    grill to high with the rack in the top position.

    2. In a small, deep, ovenproof frying pan, heat 1 tsp oil over a high heat. Sauté the salad onions and asparagus for 30 seconds, then add the spinach, in batches if necessary, and cook for 2-3 minutes until wilted. Season. Remove from the pan and set aside.

    3. Clean the frying pan, return it to a medium heat and add the remaining oil. Pour in ½ the beaten eggs, top with the vegetables and a layer of potatoes, then pour over the remaining eggs. Put the pan under the grill for 5 minutes, or until set. Place a large plate over the pan and carefully invert the tortilla, then cut into wedges to serve.

    Cook’s tip If you enjoy spicy food, add a few dashes of hot chilli sauce to the potatoes. Or try using other seasonal vegetables. Feta, Cheddar or other cheese would make tasty additions – as would crispy bacon pieces if you’re not concerned about it being meat-free.
