A very popular Catalan summer food. 

Here I will give you the original recipe that is really very very tasty. 

In Catalonia they enjoy escalivada with bread which they dip in the oil (of course I did not put so much olive oil in my recipe). 

Is this a main meal? 

In Catalonia it is eaten as a snack or appetizer. Personally, if it is accompanied by bread or put in a sandwich, it can become a perfect, light lunch that you can have at the office because it is eaten perfectly cold.
