Ingredients:
1 finely chopped onion
1.5 tbsp oil
400g (3) potatoes thinly sliced
2 cloves of crushed garlic
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
8 beaten eggs
50g serving of Savoury Crunch or Mild Chilli seeds
sea salt and black pepper
a handful of parsley and extra seeds to serve (optional)

For the salad:

1 finely sliced apple
2 large handfuls of pea shoots
1 tsp wholegrain mustard
1 tsp honey
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1.5 tbsp olive oil

Method:

To make the Spanish tortilla, heat the oil on a low heat, cook the onion for 10 minutes until soft.  Add the potato slices, 1/2 tbsp oil and season well with sea salt and black pepper. Cook with a lid on for 20 minutes, gently stirring every 5 minutes to ensure the mixture doesn’t stick. Add the garlic and smoked paprika, pour in the eggs, put the lid back on and cook for 20 minutes; the edges should be coming away and the top should be starting to set; press in the seeds and flip.  Cook for a further 5 minutes; remove from the pan; serve hot or cold with parsley, extra toasted seeds and salad.

For the salad dressing: whisk together the mustard, oil, honey and vinegar; pour over the apple and pea shoot salad.
