Slimming World's Spanish-style tortilla is a delicious, protein-packed dish that's perfect for a weekend brunch or weekday supper.

This recipe serves up four generous portions, and because so much of the bulk of the dish is potatoes, it's also delightfully affordable. In fact, it's one of our best healthy and cheap family meals. Sometimes it can be hard keeping to a budget if you're also trying to lose weight, but this recipe is a little secret weapon. If you're following the Slimming World plan - or just trying to be healthy generally - serve this up with a big green salad on the side. It takes just under an hour to make this delicious, sunshine dish. 


  • 700g floury potatoes, peeled and very thinly sliced
  • 1 large onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 large green pepper and 1 large red pepper, halved, deseeded and finely chopped
  • Low-calorie cooking spray
  • 6 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 tbsp freshly chopped parsley




  1. Place the sliced potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with water. Add a pinch of salt and bring to the boil, cook for 3 minutes and then drain well.
  2. Place the onion, peppers and garlic in a saucepan and pour over 275ml of water. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 5 minutes, again drain well.
  3. Spray a deep medium-sized frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray and heat until hot. Add the potato slices, onions and peppers and mix well.
  4. Season the eggs and pour into the pan, packing the vegetables firmly together. Lower the heat and cook for 15-20 minutes until the base is set.
  5. Place the tortilla under a preheated medium-hot grill and cook until golden and set. Remove from the heat and sprinkle with the parsley before cutting into wedges to serve.
