Saturday is the sixth week of the Harvard Farmers’ Market and although I am out of town (Alaska!), I can assure you the market is loaded with greens right now. Kale, Swiss chard and mustard greens are all in season, and although they don’t look like much fun, I beg you to add them to your list this week. They are packed with nutrients and can be thrown into so many delicious dishes (Think: soups, stir fry, pasta, risotto...). This tortilla is one of my favorites and is a great weeknight or brunch meal. Just a few simple ingredients and you have yourself a healthy dinner.
Have a great weekend, I’ll be back next week. And If I know myself, there will be no lack of Alaska photos to share!
If you are in the Boston-area stop by the Harvard Farmers’ Market, Saturday from 9-1, for local produce, breads, cheese, meats and handmade goodies. Previous Harvard Farmers’ Market recipes can be found here or via the link on the right nav.
Spanish Tortilla with Kale
4 T olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 1/2 lbs small red potatoes, sliced very thin
6-8 stems kale, stalk discarded and leaves chopped
2 t salt
1 t pepper
6 large eggs
Preheat oven to 400F. In a large sauce pan, heat 3 T olive oil over medium heat. Add onion and potatoes, and cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add kale, salt and pepper, and cook 7-10 minutes, until potatoes are tender. Remove from heat.
In a large bowl, beat eggs with a fork. Add potato mixture, scraping the sauce pan clean, and stir to coat.
Add 1 T olive oil to the sauce pan, swirling to coat. Pour in potato-egg mixture, and transfer to the oven. Bake 20-25 minutes, until tortilla has puffed, and a knife inserted comes out clean. Allow to cool, and cut into slices to serve.
