Potato and Other Things Omelette with Bean Salad

Some days, it is all too much effort to think of something interesting for dinner. Those are the days I reach for pasta or eggs.  Today was an egg day. I hesitate to call this a tortilla, as it has ingredients that wouldn't go into a proper Spanish tortilla, although it is cooked in a similar way (i.e. the added things are put in the eggs, rather than the eggs being tipped over them like a frittata).

This one has sliced boiled new potatoes, sautéed onions and green peppers, a good handful of grated Emmental cheese and slices of chorizo added to the lightly beaten eggs, then tipped into a lightly oiled frying pan and cooked over a medium heat until three quarters done, then I put it under the grill to finish off as I am a wimp about turning it over.

A can of cannelini beans with cooked and cooled green beans, red onions, red peppers and some coriander. A slug of Maille vinaigrette, and a slice of homemade oatmeal bread.

Light, delicious. 15 minutes.
