Sanfaina, a rich vegetable dish. A typical dish of Catalonia very similar to Manchego pisto. Although each house has its own recipe.
A plate of sautéed vegetables, ideal to accompany dishes such as meat or fish that goes very well and can also be eaten as a starter or just the sanfaina, but don't forget the bread.
A simple recipe with ingredients that we always have at home. It is a dish that we can make quantity and freeze.
It is a very good dish as it has many varied vegetables with many vitamins and minerals, a bit entertaining having to cut all the vegetables into small pieces, but the result is great.
The vegetables can be put in the amounts you like, if you like more tomato, or more pepper, you can vary the amounts according to your taste.
