Healthy Recipes – What should I cook today? – Succulent Tortilla with colorful vegetables

I am totally out of ideas – I can’t stand cooking the same things again and again and again!
Who of us doesn’t know this type of thinking? In our daily schedule, cooking becomes a routine and, after some time, repetitive.
It is often not due to lack of time but due to a lack of inspiration that we don’t know what to cook for us or our family and friends.
We rarely take the time to sit down and research new recipes.
A good way of bringing variety into your cooking routine is to buy a new fruit/vegetable or any other type of food during your weekly shopping. You have never tried the strange looking pumpkin or you never dared to buy the sweet potatoes because you don’t know what to do with them – why not go ahead and try?
Once you are at home you will have no choice but to be creative or to research new recipes. You will be surprised how easy it is to add variety to your cuisine.
It doesn’t always have to be a main meal. It may be better to start with small things – even if it is only a snack you adapt, or maybe try a new breakfast on Sunday morning? It is easier to be creative and to enjoy preparing new things when you have time and don’t have to rush to work or anywhere else.
For example, here is an idea for some quick and very tasty foods.


Succulent Tortilla with colorful vegetables

Serves 4 people


1 green bell pepper
1 onion ({red, better for you than white!)
300g tomatoes
2 small potatoes
3 tbsp olive oil
1 bunch of parsley
8 eggs
100ml vegetable stock
Salt and pepper to taste


Wash, dry and clean the green pepper and cut it into thin slices; peel the onion and cut it into small rings. Wash, dry and cut the tomatoes into eights. Peel the potatoes and finely grate them.
Heat the olive oil and saute the onions and pepper. Add the potatoes and leave for 3 more minutes then add the tomatoes. Wash and dry the parsley and finely chop. Scramble the eggs in a separate
pan and add the vegetable stock and parsley. Add salt and pepper then pour on top of the vegetables. Cover the pan and leave for 8 minutes. Cut into 4 pieces and serve hot. Enjoy!
