  • 1 tablespoon of butter or oil
  • 4 shallots thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 2 1/2 cups of thinly sliced sweet potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 box of Burnbrae Naturegg Simply Egg Whites
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon of black pepper


  • 1 cup of fresh spinach leaves
  • 1/2 cup of crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon of red chilli flakes
  • 1 tablespoon of minced parsley


  1. Preheat a non stick skillet about 9 inch round over medium heat, melt the butter and start sautéing the shallots. Keep sautéing for 8 minutes or so until the shallots are soft and nearly golden, then add in the garlic. Sauté for another minute and add in the sweet potatoes. Season with salt and sauté for a minute on top. Cover the skillet and lower the heat to low. The sweet potatoes will cook for nearly 20 minutes until soft and tender.
  2. At that point, add in the egg whites, season and cover the skillet again for 10-15 minutes until the eggs are cooked all the way through.
  3. Serve the Spanish tortilla right away with the toppings. Enjoy :)
