Tonight's meal is in honour of Spain. Usually a traditional Spanish Tortilla is made with just potatoes but there are versions with the veggies as I've done below. I like to sneak in veggies wherever I can. This is usually served as a tapas, cut into cubes or slices and served with toothpicks. Great for snacking on during the game....
The rest of the Euro 2012 menu is here.
