Escudella amb carn d’olla
Escudella amb carn d’olla. Just as the Valencian Community is known for being a land of rice dishes, Catalonia is known for its Escudelles, although they are also made in Mallorca. Escudella amb carn d’olla is the most traditional Catalan stew made with meat & vegetables cooked together. Vegetables include chickpeas, potatoes, green cabbage, celery, carrots, onions & turnips.
Meats include a characteristic sort of big meatballs called pilota or can also include pieces of the Catalan sausage butifarra, veal, chicken, pork…well anything really. When both veggies and meat parts are served mixed together, it is called escudella barrejada. There is also a particular version escudella de nadal or sopa de galets served in Christmas. You are usually served the soup with pasta as & then its more solid ingredients as the main dish.
