  1. Heat 2 teaspoons og the olive oil in a medium-size non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add in the onion and cook, stirring, until translucent (3 to 4 minutes). Add in the potatoes, thyme and paprika. Cook for an additional 2 minutes.
  2. Lightly whisk together the eggs and egg whites in a large bowl. Gently stir the potato mixture into the eggs along with the cheese, spinach, salt and pepper until combined. Wipe the pan clean. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and heat over medium heat. Pour in the egg mixture, cover and cook until edges are set and bottom is browned (4 to 5 minutes), (it will still be moist in the center).
  3. To flip the tortilla, run a spatula gently around the edges to loosen. Invert a large plate over the pan and turn the tortilla out, onto it. Slide tortilla back into pan; continue cooking until completely set in the middle (3 to 6 minutes). Serve warm or cold.
