Today is the final day of the 3 ingredient recipes and since it was my daughter who took over the cooking this week lets end it with her favourite after school snack, the Tortang Patatas. Tortang Patatas is a type of omelette made out of out of potatoes and eggs, unlike the most popular definition of torta that defines a type for flat bread or sandwich, torta in Philippine culinary sense is a type of omelette where different ingredients like eggplant, minced meat, tomatoes, etc. are combined and pan fried with scrambled eggs.
Like I said this is my daughters go to snack, it’s so easy she makes it for herself once in a while. It is also very nutritious and filling, just one serve of this is enough to bring that hunger down.
