Last updated Jul 30, 2023

Pisto Manchego is a Spanish version of ratatouille, a flavorful and versatile vegetable stew. Fresh and ripe vegetables are what give this stew such a deep and refreshing flavor.

We have enjoyed Pisto Manchego as one of the dishes for the tapas night or as a breakfast dish with a fried egg and Manchego cheese over it.


Olive Oil
1 medium Spanish onion, diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
½ yellow bell pepper, diced
½ green bell pepper, diced
1 zucchini, cut into ½-inch pieces
1 small eggplant, cut into ½-inch pieces
½ cup dry white wine
2 large ripe tomatoes, diced
salt and pepper
red crushed pepper flakes, optional
1 teaspoon sherry vinegar
1/3 cup finely chopped parsley
grated Manchego cheese, optional

Step 1: In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat and add onion and garlic. Cook until onions are translucent about 8 minutes or less. Stir frequently to avoid garlic burning.

Step 2: Add the bell peppers, zucchini, and eggplant cook for approximately 5 minutes. Sprinkle salt and pepper over vegetables, stir and add the white wine. Cook until white wine is reduced to half.
