  • 1 white onion sliced
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 25 g butter
  • 400 g waxy potatoes quartered and finely sliced
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 8 eggs beaten
  • 2 tbsp parsley plus extra to serve
  • 1 baguette sliced
  • 4 vine tomatoes peeled and coarsely grated
  • 2 tbsp olive oil


  • Put a large non-stick frying pan on a low heat
  • Cook the onion slowly in the oil and butter until soft but not brown – this should take about 15 mins
  • Meanwhile, peel the tomatoes (if using) by scoring the skins with a cross, putting them in a bowl and pouring over just-boiled water
  • Drain the water after 2-3 mins and the skins will peel away easily
  • You can then coarsely grate them
  • Add the potatoes to the pan, then cover and cook for a further 15-20 mins, stirring occasionally to make sure they fry evenly
  • When the potatoes are soft and the onion is shiny, crush 2 garlic cloves and stir in, followed by the beaten eggs
  • Put the lid back on the pan and leave the tortilla to cook gently
  • After 20 mins, the edges and base should be golden, the top set but the middle still a little wobbly
  • To turn it over, slide it onto a plate and put another plate on top, turn the whole thing over and slide it back into the pan to finish cooking
  • Once cooked, transfer to a plate and serve the tortilla warm or cold, scattered with the chopped parsley
  • To accompany the tortilla, take slices of warmed baguette, stab all over with a fork and rub with the remaining garlic, pile on the grated tomatoes and season with sea salt and a drizzle of olive oil
