Dinner Tonight: Pea Tortilla with Mint and Yogurt

What is it about big egg tortillas that I like so much? Is it the simple preparation, or the incredible pleasure I get from pulling a leftover slice straight out of the fridge for breakfast? Either way, this recipe from Food and Wine first caught my attention because of its incredibly short ingredient list. Greek yogurt and mint were the only two things that weren't pantry staples.

The peas are the real star here. They lighten the mood, making this egg-laden dish feel fluffy instead of greasy and heavy. Perfect for spring, it reminds me most of a sun-drenched brunches on patios. Sure, I ate this at 8 p.m. in my dark kitchen, but I suppose that's the power of the recipe.
