Spanish Tortilla with Roasted Peppers and Spinach

Spanish Tortilla with Roasted Peppers and Spinach

Serves 10 to 12

A Spanish "tortilla" is similar to an omelet or frittata. Serve it up as a first course for 10 to 12 or in larger pieces as an entrée for 6.

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 1 3/4 pounds red potatoes, unpeeled, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt, to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 packed cups (about 4 ounces) baby spinach
  • 1 cup thinly sliced roasted red peppers, drained well
  • 8 eggs, lightly beaten

Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large nonstick (or well-seasoned cast iron) skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and onion, and cook about 2 minutes. Add potatoes, salt and pepper, stir well, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are just tender, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl, add spinach to the bowl and toss well. Let cool 10 minutes. Wipe the skillet clean. Stir peppers and eggs into potato mixture.

Heat another 1 1/2 teaspoons of the oil over medium heat. Transfer potato mixture to the skillet and cook, running a spatula around the edges and gently shaking occasionally to prevent sticking, until eggs are set and bottom is golden brown, 12 to 14 minutes. Carefully invert onto a large plate. Heat remaining oil in the skillet and slide tortilla back in, cooked side up. Cook about 5 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer tortilla back to the plate and let cool at least 10 minutes. Slice into wedges and serve.
