This delicious Spanish recipe is from MoVida Cocina: Spanish Flavours from Five Kitchens by Frank Camorra and Richard Cornish.


  • 150g baby spinach leaves

  • Sea salt flakes

  • 3 eggs

  • 1.5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped


  • 1.

    Wash the spinach several times to remove any grit. Drain and pat dry. Bring a saucepan of lightly salted water to the boil. Blanch the spinach for 30 seconds, then drain and refresh under cold running water. Drain well. Place the spinach in a clean tea towel and wring out the excess water. Roll the spinach into a ball, place on a chopping board and thinly slice.

  • 2.

    Using a fork, lightly beat the eggs with a pinch of salt in a bowl. Set aside. Heat the oil in a 20cm non-stick frying pan over low heat. Cook the garlic for 5 minutes or until softened but not browned. Increase the heat to high and add the spinach. Cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly.

  • 3.

    Pour the beaten egg into the pan and for the next minute or so, using a flat plastic spatula, fold it through the spinach mixture, bringing the outside of the mixture into the middle of the pan. Reduce the heat to low and cook, without stirring, for 1-2 minutes. Take it off the heat, cover with a lid or plate and leave for 5 minutes to allow the residual heat in the pan to finish cooking the tortilla.

  • 4.

    Gently slide the tortilla off the pan onto a warmed plate. Sprinkle with a little salt and serve warm.
