Sweet Potato and Quinoa Breakfast Tortilla

Breakfast tortillas are a traditional Spanish dish. This one swaps the potatoes for sweet potatoes and quinoa, to provide extra nutrition for your family.

It's a family-friendly recipe, even your baby-led weaner can eat. This "breakfast" tortilla is great for any meal of the day. It contains just 4 ingredients (although cheese on top would make a tasty addition!). 

Just cut the finished tortilla into strips for your little self-feeder.
