Timbal d’Escalivada


I couldn’t help it :D. Barça is my Team! For those of you not in the know, I’m talking about football :D.

Escalivada is a typical Catalan dish made out of Roasted Peppers, Eggplant, Onion, Tomatoes,… To prepare mine, I only used some red peppers, eggplant and potatoes.
Roasted all of them. When done, covered them with a clean kitchen cloth or kitchen film to let it sweat. Peeled them and cut into long strips. Discarded the seeds, poured some extra virgin olive oil on top, thick sea salt and black ground pepper.

Boiled some potatoes (you can roast them instead). When done, peeled and smashed them a bit. Added some extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper. Presented the dish in a Timbal shape using a mold. Decorated with an anchovy on top.
You can have as a side dish or as a complement to your fish or meat dishes. Have it cold. Delicious and easy! It’s perfect for summer time :D.

Finally a short post!!!!

CONGRATS!!! we watched the game and, not sure if you know, but jonny is from manchester and is a diehard Man U fan. he was a bit depressed yesterday (and today!). but barcelona def. outplayed them. luckily we love spain and will never be sore losers (ok, maybe jonny is…).

Congrats to Barcelona… good match!

I adore the ingredients in this Catalan dish and it’s amazing how all the Mediterranean countries can reinterpret the same ingredients in so many ways.
