We only get one body, so let’s make sure we treat it right. For the month of January, we’ve been focusing on creating healthy habits.  Creative fun ways to make lunchboxes for your children, and benefit of eating fruits and vegetables (check out our Instagram posts).

Also a special treat for you. We had included the winning recipe from our Egg Creation Competition by “Belinda & Team” from Harvey Kalles Real Estate. Enjoy!

Spanish Omelette

1 lb Yukon gold potatoes

2 small onions

Olive oil

Salt

8 eggs

  1. Begin by peeling, quartering and thinly slicing the potatoes, about ½ cm thick. Keep them covered in water as you slice to stop them from oxidizing.
  2. Peel and slice the onions in the same way. Place into a large pot.
  3. Drain potatoes well and add to pot with onions.
  4. Cover the potato and onion mixture with olive oil and add a pinch of salt.
  5. Place over low heat and stir occasionally for approx. 30-45 minutes.
  6. Once it starts to bubble shut off heat and allow to cool in the pot.
  7. When warm, strain mixture and reserve both the olive oil and potato mixture separately.
  8. Crack 8 eggs into a bowl and whisk lightly.
  9. Fold in potato and onion mixture. Add another pinch of salt.
  10. Pre heat a10 inch nonstick pan on medium heat. Add enough oil to just cover the bottom.
  11. Once you see slight amounts of smoke come off the pan add in the egg mixture.
  12. Turn down to medium low and swirl pan, but do not scramble the eggs. Clean up the edges every once in a while to keep it a circle. Cover with a lid and cook for about 5 minutes.
  13. Using a large plate upside down and securely on top of the pan, invert the pan to flip the omelette onto the plate.
  14. Lightly re-oil the pan and slide the back into the pan so that the cooked side is facing up. It should be very lightly golden brown. If it’s darker, turn the heat down and if it’s not dark enough turn the heat up a touch.
  15. Repeat steps 12 and 13 2 more times each, reducing or adding heat ad necessary.
  16. Once cooked and firm in the centre, remove from pan and allow to cool for 5 minutes before cutting. Serve warm garnished with romesco sauce, lemon garlic aioli and green pea mascarpone puree.
