Vegan Fall Dishes: 3 Delicious Recipes

1- Spanish Vegetal Tortilla

SPANISH VEGETAL TORTILLA

INGREDIENTS

  • 550 g of potatoes
  • 2 onions
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 200 g silken tofu
  • 120 g chickpea flour
  • 10 cl of soy milk
  • 50 g cornstarch
  • 200 ml water + ½ tsp vegetable stock
  • 2 tbsp of chives
  • 2 tbsp of curry powder
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • Pepper

PREPARATION

Start by peeling your potatoes, cleaning them, and cutting them into thin slices.

Finely chop the onions and press the garlic.

In a well-oiled pan, fry the onions, garlic, and your potatoes covered over medium heat for about 20 minutes until your potatoes are tender (but not too tender, they should still hold together). Stir from time to time.

In the meantime, prepare your tortilla mix: in a bowl, mix the silken tofu with the chickpea flour, cornstarch, spices, chives, salt, and pepper. Gradually add the liquids (soy milk and water + broth) and mix well. Your preparation will be a bit liquid, don’t worry, everything will come back in order when cooking.

When your potatoes are cooked, pour them into your liquid mixture.

Heat the oil in your pan and place the whole mixture in it.

Cover and cook for 10 minutes on each side over low heat. You can flip your tortilla when you start to see bubbles appear in the center of it and it starts to come apart by itself.

Serve cold or hot, with a green salad, roasted peppers, or sliced tomatoes if in season!

Author’s Tip: To flip the tortilla, I used a trivet that I placed like a lid on my pan, flipped it over, and slid my tortilla back into my pan, uncooked side down.
