Ingredients

  • 4 tsp essential Waitrose olive oil
  • 1 echalion shallot, finely sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely sliced
  • 3 thyme sprigs, leaves picked
  • 160g essential Waitrose Spinach
  • 250g fresh (podded weight) or frozen peas
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 handful flat leaf parsley, finely chopped

Method

  1. Heat 2 tsp oil in a non-stick frying pan, about 15cm in diameter; fry the shallot for 10 minutes, until soft. Add the garlic and thyme, then the spinach, peas and a splash of water. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until the spinach is wilted and the peas are tender.

  2. Beat the eggs in a large bowl, then add the spinach and pea mixture, plus the parsley. Mix well and season. Wipe out the pan with kitchen paper and heat the remaining 2 tsp oil. When hot, add the egg mixture. Swirl the pan until the mixture starts to set around the edges, then reduce the heat and cook on a very low heat for 4-5 minutes, until it just starts to set, with the bottom and sides golden but the middle still quite loose.

  3. Cover the pan with a flat lid or board and carefully turn the tortilla onto it. (Don’t worry if it’s quite runny; it will come back together again.) Gently slide the tortilla back into the pan then put back on a low heat. Use a spatula to tuck the edges of the tortilla under to give it a curved look. Cook for 2-3 minutes over a medium-low heat, then turn onto a board and serve. It should still be a little soft and liquid in the middle. Enjoy with crusty bread and a tomato salad, if liked.
