Super easy. We pulse the kale in the food processor and also cut the potatoes and onion in the food processor with a french fry blade. We steam the kale in the microwave instead of blanching. Easier with thosetricks. Enjoy!

Kale and Potato Spanish Tortilla
1 lb boiling potatoes
1 cup olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons salt

Lightly beat eggs in a large bowl, then stir in vegetables, 1 tablespoon drained oil, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt.
