For this month’s ‘International Food Challenge‘, Sharanya of Just Not the Cakes is taking us on a culinary tour of Andalusia, Spain. Andalusia is one of the most populous and second largest autonomous communities in Spain , stretching south from sunny cities Cordoba and Seville all the way to Atlantic ocean and the Mediterranean sea . The name “Andalusia” was derived from the Arabic word “ Al- Andalus”. Andalusia boasts many delicious foods offering travelers a chance to stimulate their palettes while exploring.

Sharanya gave us 4 very simple recipes from the Andalusian region and I picked the Courgette Tortilla recipe. Spanish Tortilla is typically made with potatoes, but this Andalusian tortilla is made with zucchini. It is like a frittata or a fat baked omelette. This is a simple dish that is easy to prepare and served with a salad and bread on the side makes for a filling meal.

  3. Add 1tbsp oil in the same pan; cook garlic and green onions until tender, about 2~3 minutes. Arrange zucchini on top and pour in the egg mixture.
  4. Stove top method: Cover the pan and cook on medium-low flame for 7~8 minutes or until the bottom of the tortilla is set. Carefully flip the tortilla and cook for another 3~4 minutes on the second side. If the tortilla is too thick, it might be easy to slide the tortilla onto a plate and then slide the uncooked side onto the pan. Serve hot.
  5. Oven method: Preheat the oven to 400°F. Use an oven proof skillet. After pouring the egg mixture into the skillet, cook for 3 minutes to set the eggs. Place the skillet in the oven and bake for 5~7 minutes or until the center is set. Remove from the oven and slide it onto the plate for slicing.
