Manchego ratatouille with egg, video recipe
Manchego ratatouille is one of the most traditional Spanish recipes. Although its name comes from La Mancha, it is usually prepared throughout the territory. It consists of poaching different vegetables over low heat, usually those that are more accessible. It is usually accompanied with fried egg or potatoes.
