A classic dish of the Spanish cuisine is the Tortilla. It does not require much time an needs just very few ingredients. I like the flavor of fried potatoes and onions in combination with eggs. The Spanish like using lots of oil to fry this dish, I personally prefer to use a non stick pan [...]



Salmorejo

Sep 2nd, 2010 | By | Category: Recipes, Soups

This soup is from Cordoba, Spain and has a great similarity with Gazpacho. It is reduced to a few ingredients and contains no cucumber. Salmorejo is also much thicker than the Gazpacho because it contains more bread. A great and intense tomato taste! Bookmark on Delicious Digg this post Recommend on Facebook Buzz it up [...]
