  • 450 g of potatoes
  • 1 onion
  • 250 g of spinach
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons of sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 150 g of hard cheese (mozzarella or any of your choice), grated


  1. Prep the Potatoes: Start by peeling the potatoes and cutting them into small cubes. Boil them in salted water until they are just tender, about 10-15 minutes, then drain.
  2. Cook the Onion and Spinach: While the potatoes are cooking, finely chop the onion and sauté it in a large pan with a bit of olive oil over medium heat until it’s soft and translucent. Add the spinach to the pan (if you’re using fresh spinach, make sure it’s washed and drained well). Cook until the spinach has wilted and reduced in size, which should take about 5 minutes. If you’re using frozen spinach, thaw and squeeze out the excess water before adding it to the pan.
  3. Combine Ingredients: Once the potatoes and spinach mixture is ready, mix them together in a large bowl. Add the garlic powder and baking powder, and stir to combine everything evenly.
  4. Add Eggs and Cheese: Crack the eggs into the bowl and add the sour cream. Mix well until the eggs are thoroughly blended into the mixture. Then, stir in the grated cheese.
  5. Cook: In a large non-stick skillet over medium heat, pour in the spinach and potato mixture. Spread it out evenly and cook for a few minutes until the bottom starts to get golden and crispy. Then, carefully flip it over to cook on the other side, or you can put the skillet in a preheated oven (about 200°C or 390°F) to finish cooking the top, which should take about 10-15 minutes.
  6. Serve: Once cooked through and golden on top, remove from heat and let it sit for a couple of minutes. Then, slice and serve warm.

This dish combines the heartiness of potatoes with the nutritional boost of spinach, all brought together with the comforting richness of eggs and cheese. It’s perfect for a hearty breakfast, a fulfilling lunch, or a comforting dinner. Enjoy your cooking and the delicious flavors of this Spanish-inspired dish!
