We really love spanish omelettes because they’re super tasty, healthy and really quick and easy to make. Traditional Spanish omelettes are made using potatoes. We’ve decided to mix things up a little bit with this version and substitute the potatoes for parsnips, so it’s a great nutritious recipe for someone who wants to cut back on carbohydrates.

If you’d prefer to still use potatoes, you can still use this recipe and swap the parsnip for one potato or one sweet potato.

This makes a delicious and nutritious breakfast or light lunch recipe.
