Hi everyone! We've been in Pamplona with my family, but we're back and we'll answer your emails and comments as soon as possible, thanks a lot for your patience and for being always there, we love you!
Pisto is a traditional Spanish dish and it's similar to ratatouille. There are so many recipes, but this is my mother's version and I love it, although unlike me, she doesn't add potatoes.
Pisto is usually served with fried or scramble eggs, but you need to try this recipe, it tastes amazing and is also cruelty-free. If you can't live without eggs, you can make vegan scramble using tofu and black salt (Kala Namak), you won't find any difference!
- You can add your favorite veggies like carrot, leek or eggplant, this recipe always works.
- Feel free to use another non-refined oil instead the extra virgin olive oil (I also love coconut oil).
- Canned or fresh tomatoes can be used instead of the tomato sauce, but you should cook the pisto longer.
- ½ diced potato
- ½ diced zucchini
- Extra virgin olive oil
- 2 cloves of garlic, sliced
- ½ diced onion
- ½ diced green bell pepper
- ½ diced red bell pepper
- Sea salt to taste
- ½ cup tomato sauce
- I steam the potato and the zucchini for about 15 minutes, but you can also boil or fry them.
- Heat some oil in a frying pan and sauté the rest of the veggies for 5 or 10 minutes. Add sea salt to taste.
- Add the potato and the zucchini (cooked) and also the tomato sauce. Cook over medium heat for about 10 minutes.

Hi Iosune & Alberto,
First off, thank you very much for sharing all of your great recipes with the rest of the world. I stumbled upon your site a few months ago and have been obsessed with the wonderful recipes you have given to us. This evening I attempted to make pisto (which I have never tried before) and it was so good. My wife thinks it's one of the best meals I've made, and I make dinner a most days during the week when we are not eating out at a restaurant.
I have tried about 5 or 6 recipes of yours and I will be certain to leave reviews on those items as well. Really appreciate you taking the time to share your wonderful meal (virtually) with us.
Gracias por todo amigos!
We are off to Barcelona in a month and have been there a few times before. Do you have any restaurant suggestions?

This is such a winner. I made this and the kid actually had to servings of it. It's such a rare thing not to have to struggle to get them to eat their vegetables let alone have them ask me if there's more.
