Asparagus Tortilla

How to make an Asparagus Tortilla.

Ingredients: Serves 4

  • 1 bundle of asparagus
  • 1 courgette, thinly sliced
  • 15g unsalted butter
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 200g potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 6 medium eggs, beaten
  • salt
  • pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, and bring a pan of salted water to the boil.
  2. Fill another dish with iced water, large enough to fit the asparagus.
  3. Drop the asparagus into the boiling water, bring back to the boil then cook for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Remove the asparagus from the boiling water with a slotted spoon, then plunge into the iced water to preserve the bright colour of the asparagus.
  5. Meanwhile, in a non-stick pan fry the sliced courgettes in the butter then add the garlic and cook over a medium heat for around 6-7 minutes until almost sticky.
  6. Using the same boiling water used to cook the asparagus, par-boil the potatoes and cut into cubes, then add the potatoes and the onion to the pan and cook until softened.
  7. Place the asparagus into the pan, season the beaten eggs with salt and pepper and then add to the pan.
  8. When the eggs have just set around the edges, transfer to the preheated oven for around 6-8 minutes or until the tortilla is set.
  9. When cooked turn out onto a plate.
  10. Cut the tortilla into slices and serve with a side salad.
