Are you looking for an authentic, vegan recipe that will certainly please every taste bud 🙂 Then rejoice, because we have the perfect recipe for you! Introducing the delicious, vegan Tortilla Española. In fact, it is a traditional Spanish dish that is usually prepared with eggs. However, recently the vegan version is gradually gaining popularity. And why? Because it's just as delicious! ☺
Tortilla Española, or Spanish Tortilla, is a traditional Spanish dish. It is an omelet made mainly of potatoes and often refined with onions. In this case, the Tortilla Española is not baked in the oven, but fried in a pan. It is commonly served as tapas in Spain and is an integral part of Spanish cuisine. 🌮
The vegan version of the Tortilla Española requires a few modifications. Instead of chicken eggs we use Chickpea flour. Giggles are rich in protein and provide a silky texture similar to that of eggs. This results in a nice, fluffy and tasty tortilla Española without animal products. So even if you are vegan, you can enjoy the delicious taste of Tortilla Española. 🍇
For the vegan Tortilla Española recipe you will need the following ingredients:
Here are the detailed steps to prepare the vegan tortilla española:
Peel the potatoes and onions and cut them into thin slices. 🍅 Now heat some olive oil in a pan and add your potatoes and onions. Fry them over medium heat until they are soft. Then remove them from the pan and set them aside.
Mix the chickpea flour with the vegetable broth, baking powder and a pinch of salt. Stir this mixture until smooth. 🥑
Add the cooled potatoes and onions to your "egg" mixture and stir well. Now heat a little more olive oil in the pan and add your tortilla mixture. Fry them over low to medium heat until the underside is firm and golden. 🍞
Now comes the tricky part - flipping the tortilla. Cover the pan with a large plate and carefully turn it over. Then slide the tortilla onto the plate. Now add more oil to the pan and gently slide the tortilla back to fry the other side. Once this side is also golden, your vegan tortilla española is ready to serve! 🥘 🍔
The vegan Tortilla Española can be served warm or cold. In Spain, it is often cut into small squares or triangles and served as tapas. It goes perfectly with a fresh green salad or can be enjoyed as a main dish with a side of bread. Bon appetit! 🥣
Vegan Tortilla Española is a delicious and healthy dish that will delight both vegans and non-vegans. It's relatively easy to make and ideal for a meal at any time of day. So give it a try and enjoy this hearty vegan dish! 😁
