Courgette, Pea & Broad Bean Tortilla

Serves 4
Total Time
40 Minutes
3 tbsp of olive oil
350g of Jersey Royal or new potatoes, scrubbed and thickly sliced
1 small red onion, sliced
1 medium courgette, trimmed and cubed
300g of fresh peas, podded
300g of broad beans, podded
5 Waitrose British Blacktail Large Free Range Eggs
½ x 25g pack of mint, leaves only, chopped
Step 1

Heat half the oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Add the potatoes, onion and seasoning. Cook for 15 minutes, turning occasionally until tender. Add the courgette to the pan, increase the heat and cook for a further three to five minutes until the potatoes are golden.

Step 2

Meanwhile, cook the peas and broad beans in a pan of boiling water for one minute until just tender. Drain then add to the golden potatoes and cook for a further couple of minutes.

Step 3

Place the eggs, mint and seasoning in a large bowl and beat lightly with a fork. Add the hot vegetables from the pan and mix thoroughly. Leave to stand for five minutes.

Step 4

Warm the remaining oil in a 20cm non-stick frying pan over a medium heat until very hot. Pour in the egg mixture, stir with a fork, lifting the middle of the tortilla to let the runny egg down into the base. Cook for four to five minutes until set and the base is golden. Invert onto a plate, then slide back into the pan and cook for another two to three minutes, until thoroughly cooked and golden. Serve warm or at room temperature with salad.
