A sort of tribute to Spain's triumph at the World Cup
I am really getting back into the swing of this cooking malarkey.
I am determined to not just eating the same old thing every single night.
I got stuck in a bit of a rut/rotation of the same meals, lasagne, curry, chilli, chicken and rice blah blah blah... It was getting a little boring.
I am always on the look-out for nice new recipes to try. Things that are simple enough to put together after a long day at work.
I was at a friends house on Friday night for a bit of a twilight movie marathon (TWIHARD!) and she made us a beautiful Spanish omelette. I arrived a little early as always so helped in the preparation.
Not only was it simple to make but it tasted amazing! I decided to make my own version last night.
As my fussy boyfriend is opposed to anything remotely healthy or green I had to be careful what I put into it.
I settled for a simple leek, sweet potato and choritzo Omelette.
I diced a large sweet potato and put it on to boil, chopped up a small leek and a generous portion of choritzo and fried them in a little fry-lite until the leeks were softened.
I then mixed the potato and leek mixture together in a pie dish and poured over a mixture of 6 medium eggs and a splash of milk, then I sprinkled a little cheddar and some chives on the top.
It cooked away in the oven for roughly 25 minutes.
(I really need to work on my food photography! This is a little pitiful...)
It was so yummy I didn't even have a chance to take a picture of the whole thing before tucking in! I am definitely adding this to our regular meal rotation! *nom nom*
