Healthy, because

Even smarter

Potatoes and eggs are the perfect combination for athletes, because they both contain plenty of protein. If these two foods are eaten together, the biological value of the protein increases, i.e. we can process the nutrient better. Parsley and onion bring additional essential oil into the dish, which protects us from bacteria that cause illness.

Throughout Spain, the potato and egg cake is known and popular under the name of tortilla. There are many different variations of this simple recipe. You can spread sour cream on the egg and potatoes and place salmon on top, or fry the vegetables of your choice with the onions.

Rinse the potatoes, cut into small, bite-size pieces and cook in a pot of boiling salted water until knife-tender, about 10 minutes.
