Spanish tortilla with kiwi and chili salsa

I always loved Spanish food. It reminds me of the many holidays I’ve enjoyed in this beautiful country. Oh, I can’t wait to get back there, especially in Barcelona, which is one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever seen. I am actually thinking about going there to write a post about the city, its restaurants and the food, as they’re all amazing.

Well, who am I kidding. I think I want to go there because I really need a holiday. And writing a post about Catalan food would probably be a good excuse 🙂 . But let’s stop dreaming for a bit and let’s bring a bit of Spain into our homes. Tortilla is a pretty simple food, one that you have to try if you ever go there, and if you don’t, just follow this recipe and you will save yourselves the money for the ticket to Spain 🙂

As you can see, there is no meat in this tortilla which probably makes it perfect for vegetarians. In my post Fusilli with cherry tomatoes and spinach I explained that I have days when I rule out all meat products in order to keep a healthy balanced diet. Just like pasta, this tortilla is very nourishing and when I have an exhausting day, it really comes to rescue by giving me the carbs I need.

Oh yea,  I should also mention here the Vegetarian Burger with avocado and blue cheese, which is another perfect recipe for my no meat days.

This is my version of Tortilla with salsa and it’s probably best if you make it a big one, so you can share it with friends or family.

I had this tortilla with another Spanish dish , fresh salsa with cherry tomatoes, chilli and kiwi.

Spanish tortilla with kiwi and chili salsa

This is kind of like a sauce and salad combined (I call it sausalad :)) ), and it’s made with fresh veggies chopped in small pieces, where you can also add a fruit. So I choose kiwi.
