(That goes double if you have kids.) Having the time to power up the stove, crack some eggs, and whip up a nourishing meal? Forget it.

Which is where this Spanish tortilla recipe from The Mediterranean Dish comes in. Not only will it feed you all week, but it has the perfect balance of veggies, protein, carbs, and healthy fats. Every single ingredient in this recipe is bursting with health benefits; there isn’t any part of it that isn’t benefitting the body in some way. A rundown: eggs, salt, paprika, oregano, extra virgin olive oil, russet potatoes, yellow onion, and scallions. (Pro tip: be generous with the paprika and oregano to really turn up the flavor.)
For added fiber, recipe developer Suzy Karadsheh enjoys a Spanish tortilla with a side of spinach arugula salad (which takes just three minutes to make). A focus on vegetables is a major component of the Mediterranean diet, so if you have other vegetables in your crisper about to go bad, work them into this recipe.
