Green Pepper Tortillas

This dish is a simple and easy recipe which is not only healthy but delicious too. By serving it with a green salad you can make a nutritious meal for all the family. When making this I only used 3 peppers and 5 eggs as I was making this for two and I can't slice my peppers anywhere near as finely as the Tesco recipe entails.

6-8 tbsp Olive Oil
1 Onion- peeled and finely sliced
5 Green Peppers- deseeded and finely chopped
2 Garlic Cloves- finely sliced
6 eggs
Salt and Pepper- to season

1.) Heat the olive oil in a pan and add the onion. Cook very slowly with a pinch of salt until deep gold – about 30 minutes – stirring every so often. Drain, reserving the oil, then pour the oil back into the pan and add the peppers and garlic. Fry for 5-10 minutes until completely tender.
2.) Whisk together the eggs and a little seasoning in a large bowl, then add the onions, peppers and garlic, again reserving the oil.
3.) Put a large frying pan on the heat and add the reserved oil. When nearly smoking, carefully pour in the tortilla mixture, shaking the pan slightly to ensure it is evenly spread. Reduce the heat and cook for about five minutes until the underside is golden-brown.
4.)Place a similar-sized plate on top of the pan and carefully, using a cloth, invert the tortilla on to the plate.
5.)Add a little extra oil into the pan then slide the tortilla back into the pan and cook for another 3-5 minutes, until the centre is set. Slide back on to the plate and leave to cool for a few minutes.
