Spanish Tortilla 

This is one of my favourite meals to make. It is quick and easy and can be served hot or cold. I like mine served with a mixed salad and baked beans! It would also work as a quick filling snack on its own as it’s packed with veg and protein. You can also change this up by adding in different veg or some extra protein like sausages or bacon.
