Green Tortilla

SERVES: 2 | PREP TIME: 2 min | COOK TIME: 15 min

Start your day off right with protein and greens. I love how quick and easy it is to make this satisfying tortilla which makes an ideal balanced breakfast or a speedy lunch. This is also a great way to sneak greens onto the plate for fussy eaters. It can be made in advance and stored in the fridge for 2-3 days. In fact, when cold, this is even better as cooked potatoes contain resistant starch when cooled, which provides fuel for our good gut bugs.

Ingredients:

150g diced potato (no need to peel)

1. Bring a pot of water to the boil, add salt and add the diced potatoes for 5 mins until softening.
Meanwhile chop the onion, add 1 tbsp olive oil to a pan on a medium heat and sauté for 5 mins.
Drain the potatoes and add to the onion pan for a further two minutes. Season, and pour the mixture into a bowl.
