    Escalivada is a roasted vegetable dish, typical from the regions of Cataluña and Aragon. Its’ name comes from the Catalan verb escalivar, which is the process of cooking food slowly very close to the embers of a barbecue.  It is a simple dish, with rural origins, made from roasted aubergine, peppers, tomatoes and onions. Typically served warm or at room temperature with crusty bread, escalivada works well as a garnish to both meat or fish dishes. In this recipe, I pair it with some chargrilled smoked chorizo sausage and a creamy chickpea puree for the perfect barbecue dish.


    1. For the chickpea puree, place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until a smooth, set aside.
    2. For the escalivada, pre-heat your barbecue or grill. Once hot, grill the peppers, skin side on the heat, until the skins are nicely charred and black all over, about 5 minutes. Place the peppers in a bowl and cover for the peppers to steam their skins off. On the same grill, cook the aubergine slices, tomato halves and onions until nicely charred on both sides. Peel the peppers and cut the roasted vegetables into thin strips and place them on a platter or tray. Sprinkle with salt, the chopped garlic, oregano, the baby capers and a drizzle with extra virgin olive oil.
    3. Cook the chorizo sausages on the barbecue or chargrill pan until nicely charred, about 4 minutes on each side.
    4. To serve, spoon on the base of the plates some chickpea puree, pile some roasted escalivada and top with some chargrilled chorizo sausages cut in half and a drizzle of olive oil. Serve with crusty bread and a glass of chilled Scandalo Monastrell.
