Tortilla Espagnola with Summer truffle

Today we will learn to elaborate a very famous traditional Spanish dish and it is very tasty.

I've added Summer truffle because it will give a special flavor but Spanish tortilla truffle only makes with eggs and potatoes but then you can add onion or whatever ingredient that you want.

Tortilla Espagnola with Summer truffle
Serves 6 to 8

3-5 small red potatoes, thinly sliced into circles

1 red onion, thinly sliced into rings
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon garlic powder (or one fresh clove, minced)
1 teaspoon salt
1 small Summer truffle, thinly sliced into strips
6 large eggs, beaten
Salt to taste when serving

Place the potatoes, onions, and oil in a non-stick pan (approx 10") over medium-high heat. Stir in the garlic powder and salt. Cover with a lid and stir occasionally until potatoes are soft, about 15 minutes. I use a generous amount of oil to ensure it won't stick and that the potatoes get crispy brown, but you could lessen the amount of oil to make it a little lighter if you wish.
Place the Summer truffle on top of the potato-onion mixture and cover with a lid until it wilts, about 1 minute. 
Pour the beaten eggs evenly over the truffle. Cover with a lid and let it cook on medium heat for 5-8 minutes until the eggs are mostly cooked.
Using a wide spatula, free the edges of the tortilla all the way around, then slide the tortilla onto a large plate, trying to keep the entire thing intact. Next, invert the pan over the tortilla on the plate, and using a dishtowel on the bottom of the pan, flip the tortilla back into the pan to cook the other side. Cover and cook for about 3 more minutes, until the eggs are set and cooked through. Serve immediately, with a pinch of salt to taste, and a side salad if you wish.

The mystery of the Black Truffle.




We know or think we know whole Black Truffle but there isn't  a year the same to another year.
We think we will have a good campaign and that it will be good harvest and then it starts to get hot and it's not raining in months.
So is the Black Truffle, Unpredictable!

Since its beginning, It  need weather conditions for their development.



                    



The Black Truffle lovers all year round are thinking if it rains in Spring, Summer storms, the weather in Autumn so that they mature and if it's cold in Winter but not excessive.



                       




But all this means that we have increasingly more the desire to appear the Black Truffle in late November, we feel the need to smell, taste, see and discuss with our friends or the  family the new harvest, the pleasure of savoring a beautiful and enigmatic black truffle.
