Pisto – stay lean with this Basque recipe


All the chopping will be worth it when you taste this traditional and super healthy Basque dish.

As always, simple, full of all the right nutrients, and gozo gozo! (yummy!)

Ingredients (serves 2)

1 medium white onion

1 red pepper

1 green pepper

1 big courgette

1 medium sized tomato

2 eggs

Salt, pepper, olive oil


Peel the onion and finely chop it.

Chop the green and red pepper into small cubes of about 1cm.

Peel and de-seed the tomato and cut it into small cubes. Cut the courgette into small cubes too ( I like it with the skin on as it’s full of fiber).

Put some olive oil in a pan and heat. Cook the onion until golden and see through.

Add the green and red pepper, the tomato and courgette cubes.

Let it cook slowly for about 20 to 30 minutes until all the veg. are cooked through (I like my veggies with a little crunch).

Crack the 2 eggs and beat them a lightly. Pour into the pan and mix them with the veg. The heat of the pan will cook them through.

Add salt and pepper to taste.

On egin! (Enjoy!)
