Escalivada ("escalivar" means "to cook in hot ashes") is a typical preparation of Catalan cuisine that consists of several types of grilled vegetables, such as eggplants (genus Solanum), sweet red peppers (genus Capsicum), red tomatoes (Solanum esculentum), and sweet onions.

Once well cooked on the grill, those vegetables are peeled and sliced in strips, the seeds removed, and seasoned with olive oil and salt, and sometimes with garlic as well. Typically the vegetables in an escalivada are grilled, and the dish is served with grilled meats.

In Catalonia, this dish can be served either as a main course or as a supplement to meats. It can be eaten with grilled meats or on toasted bread, being characterized by a smoky flavor of the vegetables.
