New potato Spanish omelette

I’ve just been paid, yet I have no money, story of my life. So I had to bypass my beloved Waitrose (which I can’t really afford to shop in anyway) and go to Tesco (insert sad face emoji here). Why does Tesco have that horrible strip lighting that makes everyone one look like shit? Reminds me of a giant kebab shop – people walking around aimlessly looking pasty, drunk and miserable. Although that being said, my shop only came to £5.06 so perhaps it was worth the misery. Muchas gracias Tesco. 

New potato Spanish omelette
Serves 4 / Hands on time 1 hr  / Total time 1 hr / V Gf Df
You’ll need: A large non-stick frying pan with a lid
350g new potatoes, sliced
Small red onion, finely sliced
1 garlic clove, chopped
1 tbs olive oil
5 large eggs, beaten
Handful of freshly chopped parsley
Salad leaves to serve

1. Slice the new potatoes thinly and finely slice the red onion and the garlic. Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a medium sized, non-stick saucepan, on a medium to low heat. Add the potato, onion and garlic to the pan along with a good pinch of salt and pepper. Coat evenly in the oil by turning them a few times.
2. Once sizzling, add a dash of water and cover with a lid and cook for 30 mins adding a dash of water when needed and turning the potatoes over regularly.
3. Once the potatoes are soft, remove from the heat but keep the heat on. In a large bowl, beat 5 eggs together with a handful of chopped parsley and good pinch of salt and pepper. Tumble the potatoes into the egg mixture and give it careful stir, making sure the potatoes are suitably covered.
4. Put the saucepan back over a medium heat and add a little more oil and heat before pouring the mixture back into the pan. Spread out evenly with a spoon and cover again with a lid for 10 mins, or until the egg is visibly cooked on top.
5. Loosen the edges of the omelette with a knife before carefully inverting it onto a large plate. Slide the omelette carefully back into the hot frying pan and cook for a further few minutes on the other side.
6. Turn out onto a plate and leave to cool. Serve warm with a bowl of simply dressed leaves.
