Courgette and Potato Tortilla

Healthycooking's picture
  Potatoes 1 Pound, peeled and diced (450 Grams)
  Olive oil 30 Milliliter (2 Tablespoon)
  Onion 1 , finely chopped
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm), crushed
  Courgettes 2 , thinly sliced
  Chopped fresh tarragon 30 Milliliter (2 Tablespoon)
  Eggs 4 , beaten (Size 2 Eggs)
  Ground black pepper To Taste
  Salt To Taste

1. Cook the potatoes in boiling, salted water for about 5 minutes.
2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan which can also be used under the grill. Add the onion and cook gently for 3-4 minutes until it is beginning to soften. Add the potatoes, garlic and courgettes to the pan. Cook for about 5 minutes more, shaking the pan occasionally to prevent the potatoes from sticking to the bottom, until the courgettes are softened and the potatoes are lightly browned.
3. Stir the tarragon into the eggs and season with salt and pepper. Pour the eggs over the vegetables in the pan and cook over a moderate heat until the underside of the tortilla is set. Meanwhile, preheat the grill.
4. Place the pan under the grill and cook for a few minutes more until the top of the tortilla has set. Cut into wedges and serve from the pan.
