Spanish Tortilla! Such a simple recipe with so much history, to add onion or not? Huge arguments may have been had over time! Three main ingredients works for me Eggs, potato, onion! However to jizz mine up I sprinkled smoked paprika:)
Here is the recipe..,

Finely slice a few potatoes, fry them in fry light or olive oil depending if you are slimming over about 20 mins until the potatoes are soft. Chop up a large onion (preferably not a red onion or they don’t look right) and add them to the potatoes and when they start to get soft add a sprinkle of white pepper. I also have microwaved the potatoes sliced up for quickness instead!
Mix up as many eggs as you fancy but it has to be at least six! Add a splash of milk if you fancy.
Fry the potato and onion mix util you want to eat it!
Add it to the eggs which will now be beaten.
Yes I said add the potato mix to the eggs!
Leave it in a bowl for 10 mins to let them get to know each other….. And then ooh whammy shove it all in a frying pan!
Use a spatula!!!
Let the runny egg get cooked!
Get a plate, turn the tortilla over.
Make sure it is cooked!
ALWAYS use free range eggs!!!
Sprinkle with fresh parsley and smoked Paprika 😍
I love this served cold with green salad and pickles 🙂

Stuffed peppers

I had a packet of Uncle Bens Express whole grain Mediterranean rice in the cubhoard a few peppers and some remains of my veg box. I chopped up an onion and half of a courgette which I had left and some mushrooms a few fresh herbs ( I had Basil, oregano and mint) I added a clove of garlic minced up and some torn up spinach leaves. I would have added some chilli pepper but toddler was having this too. I stirred in some olive oil and mixed it all together. Loaded it into halves of Red and Green pepper.
Wrap in tin foil and bake in the oven.

For the last 15 mins of cooking open up the tin foil sprinkle with cheddar cheese and let that melt.
Totally delicious!

You could even do this on a barbecue!

Tasty camper van tatties!

We went out for a Sunday drive in our loved Oval Beetle. We got some much needed fresh air and sunshine and got home a little bit late. My toddler was quite hungry and I needed to rustle up something quickly.
I have brought my son up Vegetarian. I haven’t a clue what other people think about this but he is a very healthy thriving toddler.
I made him a delicious little meal which he chomped his way through!
Why haven’t I made this before?

What I did was sautéed two thinly sliced potatoes in olive oil. When they began to soften I added a sliced shallot and sliced vegetarian sausage, I also raided the mint from the garden and found some rosemary and fresh oregano in the fridge, chopped it all up and threw it in.
Turning the potatoes so they cook evenly. At the very end I added some baby spinach and halved cherry tomatoes. Cooked for a few minutes longer.
Everyone kept hovering around the pan asking for a taste.
Needless to say I had to make another batch for our supper, I added chillies to ours!
This will be a great little meal when we go camping in our VW camper! I can’t wait to cook this in the fresh air.
