[vegan] Spanish Tortilla

This is really freaking delicious! My mom, little bro and dad, aunt, boyfriend and me loved it. This is a fantastic recipe I really recommend everyone to try it [you'll thank me for it] . It doesn't have any cholesterol because instead of eggs we will use chickpea or fine corn flour, it is vegan, so it''s obvious. You can also use a mix of the two flours, or one of them and add a little of whole wheat flour. Well, no more blah blah and here's the recipe:


1 cup of corn flour (or chickpea flour, if you can find it)
2 cups of water
1 teaspoon of baking powder
3 to 5 small-medium potatoes
1 large onion
Oil (for frying)
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt & pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried parsley or fresh parsley to taste
1/2 teaspoon black ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 butternut squash, shredded [optional]
1 small red pepper
1 small green pepper


Wash and peel the potatoes and cut into small-medium size cubes. Wash the onion and cut the same way. Start frying the potatoes in a frying pan and add salt to taste. In another frying pan, add the 2 tablespoon s of olive oil and add the onion, green and red pepper until done. [oh, it smells so good]

In a large mixing bowl add the 2 cups of water, the flour (or flours) & baking powder and mix together until there are not clumps, it should be in between [not too watery or thick] you can add more water or flour depending. Add some salt to taste, the ground black pepper, garlic powder, oregano & parsley. Add the butternut squash, if using. Add the onions, green and red pepper to the mixture and mix well. You can also add some tofurky sausage cut into bite size if you like and it's good too!

Add a spoonful of oil to the frying pan and pour the mixture on it. fry at medium-low heat on both sides for about 10-15 minutes. When turning to fry the other side of the omelet you should do it carefully, or if you are not sure if doing right, have another frying pan ready to turn the omelet on it [you don't need to add more oil when turning] .

Cut and serve with rice, beans, salad, alone, or with vegan mayonnaise.

Buen Provecho ;)

This sounds really good!

I have sort of a love/hate relationship with butternut squash, so maybe this recipe will make me like it more. I'm excited to try it!
