Market Basket: Spanish Tortilla with Kale



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
serves 4

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.
