Spanish Tortilla or Italian Frittata?

Within the context of the Mediterranean sea the cooking techniques and traditions are somehow similar, thus making it difficult sometimes to allocate a recipe to a specific Country rather than to another.

Minestrone: the most iconic Italian Vegetable soup

Minestrone is mostly a “concept” rather than a recipe as ingredients vary a lot based on seasonality and geographical area. The final result changes quite a lot every time you make it as vegetable do not have standard sizes and your personal taste may like it with more of this and less of that, or you may include even legumes to make it more consistent and to increase its nutritional value.
