Natoora Catalan Grilling Calçot Onions
- Calçots are the sweet, tender new shoots of fully developed white onions, which are replanted as temperatures begin to drop with their stalks buried deep in soil.
The term Calçot refers to a Catalan agricultural term - calçar - which means to cover the stalk of a plant with soil. This practice - similar to Fenland celery - means that a longer portion of the stem remains tender and distinctly sweet in flavour.
We’re sourcing Calçots direct from their native growing region, where the Mediterranean maritime climate and alluvial soil provide the ideal growing conditions for this unique onion.

Never heard of these but they were half price. They just look like big spring onions how nice could they be? Baked them in them oven with some olive oil and salt. Delicious!
Bought on a flash sale and roasted them for 30 mins drizzled with a bit of olive oil. Sweet and delicious
These a magnificent simply char grilled and drizzled with a little sea salt, olive oil and balsamic glaze
Seared, slightly charred alongside a steak, these lovely onions were very good indeed. Thanks Natoora and Ocado for stocking them every year.
a taste of catalonia
I have a very good friend from the specific part of Catalonia in Spain where these are from. I'd always wanted to visit or make them myself ever since I saw an Anthony Bourdain program on Catalonia years ago. Finally managed to get organized this weekend and was great. These are excellent. Grilled over charcoal until burnt on the outside and then wrapped in foil and newspaper so the steam cooks them. Then you strip off the outside and dip them in romesco.
Such a treat!!
Can't beat calcots cooked on a fire pit Catalan style but still delicious. Just top and tail them, get rid of the external layer and give them a good wash. Cook them on a rack over a foil-covered tray in the oven 250C for about 30 mins and enjoy with Romesco sauce, also stocked by Ocado. Delish...
