Sweet potato Spanish tortilla

Sweet potato Spanish tortilla
  • Serves: 1
  • Prep: 5mins
  • Cook: 15mins

This dish makes a great recovery meal as it provides plenty of carbohydrates (from the sweet potato) as well as good amounts of protein (from the eggs) in a ratio that promotes speediest muscle recovery. Sweet potatoes are used in this dish as they contain significant levels of beta-carotene and twice as much vitamin C as ordinary potatoes.



  • 1 small sweet potato (175g), peeled and thickly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon/15ml olive oil
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 large British Lion eggs, beaten


  1. Cook the sweet potato in a small pan of boiling water for 5 - 6 minutes until just tender. Drain and set aside.
  2. Pre-heat the grill to medium.
  3. Heat the oil in an ovenproof frying pan and fry the onion over a medium heat for 3 – 4 minutes or until softened. Add the sweet potato and season to taste with the salt and pepper.
  4. Pour in the eggs and cook for 1 - 2 minutes until the egg starts to set. Transfer to the grill and cook for 3 – 4 minutes or until the top of the tortilla is golden and the tortilla is cooked through.
  5. Slide the tortilla onto a plate and cut into wedges. Serve with a simple salad.
