Potato Leek Soup was on the menu for tonight, but it is way too hot for soup. A friend suggested I make Tortilla Espanola as this was her favorite dish in Spain and uses similar ingredients. It can also be made and then eaten at room temperature. Perfect for this kind of weather! I mostly followed this recipe, but googled Tortilla Espanola and read a few recipes to get the main idea.
RecipeSource.com explains that "In Spain, a tortilla isn't the cornmeal flat bread that we think of, but an omelet" typically loaded with potatoes and onions.
My first attempt at this dish didn't turn out perfect, it could be because I didn't follow a recipe and tried to wing it a bit. But I can definitely see its potential. I think that using onions as called for, instead of leeks would really be better.
My friend swooned over this dish and everything I read said it was wonderful, so I must make it again. Next time I'll pick one recipe and stick to it!
