Spanish Tortilla

Spanish Tortilla

Traditionally, a Spanish Tortilla offers layers of potato encased in an egg mixture. This Spanish staple is delicious but not an ideal food for anyone wanting to heal from symptoms and conditions due to the eggs, which feed the pathogens responsible for symptoms and conditions. With this recipe, you can enjoy the same delicious flavor and taste experience of a Spanish tortilla but made with chickpea flour instead of eggs. It’s also dairy-free and gluten-free.

Potatoes don’t cause health issues; the other ingredients usually served with them do, such as eggs, butter, and cream. We should also be careful not to lump potatoes in with the fear of grains and processed foods. If you’re avoiding “white” foods such as white rice, white flour, white sugar, and dairy products (such as milk, cheese, yogurt, and cream), don’t cut out potatoes! After all, a potato in its whole, natural state isn’t white—it’s covered in nutrient-rich red, brown, gold, blue, or purple skin.

Spanish Tortilla


  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 medium-sized yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 lbs potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 cups water, divided
  • 2 cups chickpea flour
  • ½ tsp sea salt (optional)
  • ¼ tsp freshly grated black pepper (optional)


Place a medium-sized ceramic non-stick frying pan on medium-high heat and add 1 teaspoon of the oil. Coat the pan well.

When hot, add the onion and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, until lightly browned. Add the thinly sliced potato and 1 cup of the water. Bring to a simmer, cover, and cook for 20 to 25 minutes until the potatoes are tender. Stir occasionally.

In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the remaining water and chickpea flour and whisk until you get a uniform smooth batter. Add salt and pepper (if using), and the cooked potatoes and onion.

Clean the pan and coat with the remaining oil. Place on medium-high heat. When hot, pour in the chickpea flour-potato mixture and let it cook for about 5 minutes, until browned on the bottom and sides.

Place a plate over the pan with the tortilla and flip it over, then slide the tortilla back into the pan to cook the other side for another 5 minutes.

Pinch a hole in the middle of the tortilla to make sure it’s cooked inside. Remove from pan and serve warm. Enjoy!
