Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large Spanish onion finely sliced
  • 3 sweet potatoes peeled and cubed into 2cm squares
  • ½ teaspoon smoked sweet paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 200 g feta
  • 5 medium eggs whisked together
  • 28 g fresh coriander* roughly chopped
  • 28 g fresh mint* roughly chopped
  • 28 g fresh parsley* roughly chopped
  • 75 g roasted red peppers shredded

Instructions

  • Heat the olive oil in a flat bottomed saucepan then add the onions. Cook on a gentle heat for about 20 minutes or until the onions are caramelised.
  • Add the sweet potatoes and stir to thoroughly coat them in the olive oil. Place the lid on and cook for about 45 - 60 minutes or until the potatoes are softened.
  • Meanwhile pre-heat the oven to 170° and line and grease an 8 inch baking tin.
  • Take the saucepan of the heat then crumble the feta into the pan, stirring with a metal spoon to combine but not too much as you don’t want the potato and feta to break down.
  • Pour in the eggs, add the herbs with plenty of seasoning and mix together.
  • Spoon the mixture into the baking tin, smoothing down so the surface is flat.
  • Place in the oven and bake for about 40-45 minutes until just browning.
  • Leave to cool for half an hour the tin before turning out. The tortilla is best served warm.
  • Serve with the roasted red peppers piled on top.

Notes

*Packets of herbs from the supermarket usually come in 28g bags - these are a perfect size for this recipe.
