with the Family

Years ago, I made Spanish tortilla (6.057 Tortilla Improvisado), but not again since, even though it’s one of my favorite Spanish dishes, so easy and convenient and cheap, sure to be a family-pleaser.

This time, I was inspired to make the dish after watching Chef Kenji do it on his YouTube cooking show (see Spanish Tortilla).

I added a bit of sriracha + fresh parsley.

Beyond the dish itself, the biggest takeaway from the episode was Chef Kenji’s “cheaty” aioli made with pre-made mayo + olive oil + garlic.  Not exactly like the real thing – still tastes like pre-made mayo – but close enough for something that takes seconds to whip up with a teaspoon in a bowl.
