Lush Tort (Tortilla)

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day so they say. So why not indulge yourself this weekend with my lush tort. I call it Luscious tortilla because this Omelette is ingredient rich and gives great pleasure to the taste sense.

It is simple, quick, tasty and filling. This recipe has the classic combination of a Spanish tortilla (potatoes and onions), with a Nigerian twist of scotch bonnet (ata rodo), fried plantain and gizzard. Wake up to a luxurious yet simple breakfast with my lush tort recipe.

Preparation time: 10minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes


1 ripe plantain

2 medium size potatoes

4 fresh eggs

Half of a green pepper-tatashe (chopped)

1 maggi cube


1 cooking spoon Olive, Vegetable or Sunflower oil

Prawns (Optional)

Gizzard (Optional)

3) Break the eggs into a bowl, add half of a cube of maggi, salt and whisk.



4) Add sunflower oil in a frying pan, add the diced tomato, scotch bonnet, onion, green pepper and the remaining half of  maggi. Leave to sautee.



5) Add the fried plantain, prawns, gizzard and potatoes into the sautéed peppers and stir.


6) Add the eggs into the mixture, reduce heat to the barest minimum and let the egg cook for about 3-5minutes.
