Escalivada is a classic dish from Catalonia and the eastern regions of Spain consisting of grilled vegetables in olive oil. Typically, this dish is made with eggplant and red peppers, but other vegetables may also be used. The word escalivada is derived from the Catalan verb “to cook in ashes” referring to the way it is typically made. To adapt this recipe for the Suvie we slow cook the vegetables whole for over 5 hours before broiling and roughly chopping them. Serve your escalivada tapa style on toasted bread, as a side for meat or fish, or in salads.
