  • Boiled vegetables, or "bullit”, has been and still is the most typical dish served in the whole Valencian Community. A favourite dinner in most homes, it offers the distinctive feature of being the most democratic of dishes because the composition of its ingredients is practically the same on tables of all social classes regardless of the economic capacity of the diners. Once the vegetables have been boiled and served at the table, each diner will season them to taste with oil and a little vinegar.


    Peel and cut the potatoes into large pieces. Cut the onions into quarters, top and tail the beans and cut them in half, and cut the chard into small pieces. Put a pan of salted water on the heat and add the vegetables. When the ingredients are cooked, drain, pour into a bowl and serve with the dressing, made of oil, vinegar and salt.
