Spanish Omelette with Spinach (Video)
spanish omelette with onions and spinach

Ingredients (for 2) 

5 eggs 

2 yolks 

500g potatoes 

250g onions 

200g olive oil 

1 bunch of spinach 

salt and pepper


  1. Peel and slice potatoes (1/10th inch), then wash them in cold water. Peel and slice onions. 
  2. In a frying pan heat olive oil and place potatoes and onions, cover with a lid and cook on medium heat for approximately 40 min, mixing from time to time. When cooked, drain and keep the oil.
  3. Wash spinach and separate it from stalks. Blanch leaves in boiling salted water for about 1 min, cool down in a bowl with cold water.
  4. In a mixing bowl place hot cooked potatoes and onions, spinach (you can chop very roughly), eggs and egg yolk. Season with salt and pepper, and mix well.
  5. Heat 2 tablespoons of reserved oil and tip inside potato and egg mixture. Shake the pan couple of times and stir once or twice. Cook on medium to high heat for approximately 2-4 min. 
  6. To flip the omelette place a lightly oiled plate (so the mixture will slide easily to the frying pan) on top of the pan and with a fast but controlled move turn the pan upside down and slide the omelette back into the pan. You can add a bit of reserved oil to the pan before sliding the omelette back into it.
  7. Cook the omelette for 2-3 min on that side and repeat the flip over movement. Enjoy!

Tip – if you want the omelette to be well done, just cook it longer.
