Pisto is very traditional Spanish dish very similar to ratatouille. It is a vegetable stew, usually with onions, bell peppers, zucchini and tomatoes. To prepare it, you should follow carefully the order of ingredients and, of course, cook over low heat. This is a very versatile dish because you can serve it with rice and eggs, or as a side dish for a grilled steak, or fish. At my parents they often make large quantities of pisto during summer with vegetables from their garden. They make preserves and have pisto for the whole year. I also have some jars of my parent’s pisto, however I prepare my pisto by default when I have some of the vegetables in my fridge that need to be used very soon.
