spanish tortilla

  • Yield: 1 serving


  • 3 teaspoon(s) evoo divided
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 1 cup(s) diced potatoes cooked
  • 1 tablespoon(s) fresh thyme chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) smoked paprika
  • 6 large eggs
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1/2 cup(s) manchego or jack cheeses shredded
  • 3 cup(s) baby spinach roughly chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) freshly ground pepper


1.Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until translucent, 3 to 4 minutes. Add potatoes, thyme and paprika and cook for 2 minutes more.

2.Lightly whisk eggs and egg whites in a large bowl. Gently stir the potato mixture into the eggs along with cheese, spinach, salt and pepper until combined. Wipe the pan clean; add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and heat over medium heat. Pour in the egg mixture, cover and cook until the edges are set and the bottom is browned, 4 to 5 minutes (it will still be moist in the center).

3.To flip the tortilla, run a spatula gently around the edges to loosen them. Invert a large plate over the pan and turn out the tortilla onto it. Slide the tortilla back into the pan and continue cooking until completely set in the middle, 3 to 6 minutes. Serve warm or cold.
