Tortilla is something that if you go to Spain you can basically get anywhere/anytime. Tortilla is not to be confused with the Mexican tortilla as they are obviously not the same thing. I havent checked the Etymology of the word but for sure it is an interesting one.

 

Also, in Spain a plain egg omelette is called "French omelette". Go and figure!

 

Now to the recipe. This one contains some small pieces of pepper&carrots just to add some color, flavor and texture.

 

Rather than doing it the normal/traditional way, I did microwave the vegetables instead of shallow frying, just to save some time. I dont think that affects too much the flavour and texture. You can see the recipe here:
