Gazpacho & Tortilla de Patata

By: Christina Gomez

Summer days can get pretty hot here in Spain. In fact, it can get so hot that you only want to eat light food that won’t take you ages in the kitchen to prepare. One of my rules in the summer is to avoid using the oven and today’s recipes are ideal for those hot days. Gazpacho is a popular refreshing drink in Spain consisting mainly of veggies and it is super healthy. Tortilla de Patata is Spain’s most popular dish together with Paella and, in case you haven’t heard of it before, it’s basically a potato omelette. It can be served as a main course or, since it also tastes great when served cold, it makes an excellent picnic food. In Spain it is sometimes served as tapas, cut into small cubes as you can see in the photo.
