About this recipe: I had this at a tapas bar in Spain way back and was able to figure out how to make it. It's an easy way to clean out the fridge and cupboard. And, perfect for a low carb diet. I was introduced to this as a tapa. But you could always pair it with a salad or other veggie side dish for dinner.
