No matter what you like to eat your Barcelona caterer will have something that excites your tastebuds. For those of you who like to enjoy all things vegetarian we’ve compiled a list of the very best veggie recipes the region has to offer. Perfect if you want to ask your Sitges holiday chef to cook you up something delicious and nutritious.
This is a classic side dish or light bite that Spain is famous for. By lightly boiling the carrots you can give them a tender texture that ensures they don’t begin to go soggy and over cooked. From there the magic begins…
Extra virgin olive oil, garlic, cumin, a dash of vinegar, and a special blend of herbs and spices all work their way into this delicious bowl of veg. What you’re left with is a little taste of heaven that any Sitges chef would be proud to call their own.
Asparagus with Eggs
This is a plateful of taste, texture, and flavour that’s popular right across Spain. The secret lies in its simplicity and the unique way that a handful of carefully selected ingredients are blended together in perfect harmony.
Locally sourced is always the best way to go when it comes to your food because it gets you in touch with the people and the area that you’re visiting. Free range eggs provide a dark and richer yolk that simply has to be tried to be fully appreciated. Poaching the eggs is a great way to enjoy the yolk, and topping it off with some handpicked asparagus really brings the dish to life. Lightly season with salt and pepper to suit your palette and you have the perfect way to start your day.
Spinach and Chickpeas
It’s such a simple dish that it’s a wonder how the locals get it to taste so good. Ask any Spanish chef and they will have their own special twist they add to this dish. The secret lies in the seasoning as this is what ties together the contrasting tastes and textures of the chickpeas and the leafy spinach. If you want a meal that is bursting full of energy and can be prepared in minutes then this could be the perfect addition to the weekly meal plan.
This dish is all about being elegant and gentle with the ingredients in front of you. A freshly picked eggplant is the foundation of the meal; one which you’ll slice as thinly as possible and then fry so it just starts to turn crisp. The locals typically eat it in one of two ways. Served on top of a thick and flavoursome tomato soup known as salmorejo, or eaten alone with just a light drizzle of local honey for company. Ask any Sitges home chef and they’re sure to have a strong opinion about which way you should try first.
Hopefully these four delicious recipes have given you plenty of food for thought and shown you that this beautiful corner of the world offers something for everyone.
