Method

  1. Beat the eggs with seasoning and your chosen background flavour, then add your leftovers. Stir in the spring onions and pasta or potatoes with your selected veg.
  2. Turn on the grill to high. Heat the oil in a medium non-stick frying pan and tip in the egg mixture. Cook gently for 10 mins over a low heat until three-quarters set, then flash under the grill to set the top. Serve with a simple tomato salad.

Just goes to show you can't go wrong with a tortilla. Made mine with the spring onions, fresh mint and chopped feta with some mushrooms. Served with the rainbow tomato salad. Lovely!

Lots of good ideas for tortillas, I used chopped red onion instead of spring onion
