Feta, courgette and chorizo tortilla

This week has been quite busy so I’ve been making super quick meals. One of our friends makes the most delicious Spanish tortillas which inspired me to make a feta, courgette and chorizo version. With a little preparation they are quite simple to make but quick and filling when you don’t want to spend ages in the kitchen.

Ingredients for feta, courgette and chorizo tortilla:
5 large British Lion eggs
Olive oil
3 large potatoes – peeled and thinly sliced
1 onion – peeled and chopped
Chorizo (I used some leftover chorizo sausages)
1 Courgette – sliced and cubed

tortilla ingredients

How to make a simple feta, courgette and chorizo tortilla:

1. Lightly beat the eggs in a bowl and season.

2. Heat some oil in a large frying pan and add the potatoes, cook until they start to go brown. Add the onion and fry for a further minute.

3. Add the egg mixture, the courgette, sliced sausages or chorizo and crumble in some feta cheese. Fry on a low heat.

4. When the egg has started to cook and set you need to flip the tortilla over. Use a large plate to cover the frying pan, flip the tortilla onto the plate and then back into the frying pan to cook the other side.

5. Allow to cook for a couple of minutes, then serve with a side salad.

Spanish tortillaThis is a meal that the whole family enjoys. This recipe serves 4 and you can add almost anything to the basic tortilla recipe – great for using up any leftovers in the fridge!
