Tortilla de Habas – Broad Bean Omelette

The classic Tortilla de Patatas consists of a thick egg omelette made with potatoes and fried in olive oil. Sometimes other ingredients such as onion are added, although purists consider that the result is not authentic. This thick Tortilla de Habas Spanish omelette made with small broad beans is popular in Murcia (south eastern Spain), where many of the beans canned for export are grown. It cuts into squares well for tapas.

According to legend, the tortilla first originated during the siege of Bilbao when Carlist general Tomás de Zumalacárregui created the “Tortilla de Patatas” as an easy, fast and nutritious dish to satisfy the scarcities of the Carlist army. Although it remains unknown whether this is true, it appears that tortilla came to prominence during the early Carlist wars.
