Spanish Tortilla

Ingredients

  • 3 teaspoons grapeseed oil (or extra-virgin olive oil), divided
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup precooked diced red potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 6 large eggs
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 3 cups baby spinach, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Directions

  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. 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 with a nice side salad or vegetable.
