Asparagus Spanish Omelette



I made this using leftover roast asparagus and potatoes.
To make from scratch

Ingredients
1 medium onion; chopped finely
8 small new potatoes; boiled and sliced
8 asparagus shoots; cut into 3 inch pieces and blanched
1 tablespoons olive oil
5 eggs; beaten
salt and black pepper to taste

Method
1. Heat the oil in a 8 inch frying pan, fry the onions until soft.
2. Add the potatoes and stir fry for a few minutes, until the potatoes are completed coated with oil, and begining to turn brown, now the asparagus, stir well.
3. Turn down the heat and add the beaten eggs; cover the pan with a lid, and leave for about 15 minutes, making sure that the heat is very low.
4. Carefully invert onto a plate and put back into the pan, cook for a 2-3 minutes.
5. Serve with a salad and crusty bread.

Oh my goodness...LOL, I can't believe this blog! It's wonderful.
My parents and their grandparents are from Tanzania and Kenya, with many friends also from Uganda. We're not Ismaili but do speak Kutchi :-)

Anyway I have been searching and searching for traditional recipes from back home, things like witoke ( i know you call it mtoke) and hondwo and dokra etc.

So, a huge thank you to you whoever it is that takes the time to write and picture it all up so beautifully. I also love the name of your blog!

I shall book mark this as a favourite and search through and hopefully put my poor husband through some of my cooking.
