Tortilla de calabaza (Pumpkin omelette)

Tortillas de calabaza (Pumpkin omelette)

Pumpkin omelette is prepared in practically the same way as the traditional potato omelette Tortilla Española (Spanish Omelette), simply substitute the potato for the pumpkin. The pumpkin gives a rich touch to this omelette and it is also spectacular - pumpkin or squash is also one of your 5-a-day - as well as being perfect for this season.

Ingredients

  • 600 gr of pumpkin
  • 5 eggs
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • Pimentón dulce (Sweet paprika)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt

How to make pumpkin omelette

  1. Cut the pumpkin into small cubes and put them in a microwave-safe container. Cover and cook the pumpkin in the microwave for 3 minutes at maximum power.
  2. Beat the eggs in a bowl together with a pinch of salt. 
  3. Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a pan and add the previously peeled garlic. When the oil warms up, add the pumpkin, mix and add salt to taste.
  4. Sauté the squash for a few minutes until tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and remove the garlic cloves. Add the pumpkin to the beaten eggs and mix it well.
  5. Continue heating another tablespoon of oil in a pan over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the pumpkin and beaten egg mixture, spread the pumpkin over the pan.
  6. After a few minutes and when the base of the tortilla is set, turn the tortilla with the help of a plate or lid with a smooth surface. Slide the tortilla back in the pan and continue cooking until it is to your liking.
