Cod with Tomato Sauce
In this recipe, one of the dozens of traditional Spanish recipes with cod, the fish is served with an accompanying sauce made with peppers and tomatoes. Since fresh cod is so readily available, most of us will probably use fresh instead of dried fish. One more note, if you make your own roasted peppers, add the juices from the peppers to the sauce.
Garlic Soup with Egg and Croutons
In ancient times, this Castilian soup was a typical lunch for humble people. It was an extremely cheap and very comforting recipe to spread warmth throughout the body in cold rural areas. It was eaten in the middle of the morning to maintain strength for the day, usually with one or two eggs cracked inside, which were cooked from the heat of the soup.
Roasted Veggie Flatbread
This is a rustic flatbread recipe that originates from the abundance of the harvest, when the sun shines on the Mediterranean coast of Catalonia, Valencia, and the Balearic Islands, a region located in the east of Spain.
Tuna Salad with Egg and Potato
This country salad, also known as a summer salad, is a simple and perfect preparation for dinner, but it is also a common tapa (small plate) dish that is served with many other tapa dishes along with bread, olives, beer and wine.
Tortilla Española is one of the most classic Spanish dishes. It is typically served for breakfast but becomes leftovers for almost every meal!
Tuna Deviled Eggs
For many Spanish people, tuna deviled eggs are part of their childhood memories, such as lunches at grandparents’ homes, or joyful dinners on a summer day. Nowadays it is also common to find this dish in the tapas showcase of many Spanish bars.
Patatas Bravas is an all-time favorite tapa among Spanish people. Usually it is enjoyed with a beer and good company.
