Ajvar

Ajvar and focacciaRed pepper ajvar

COUNTRY:

This is a simple red pepper and aubergine spread with a garlic hit! We’ve added a red chili for some extra heat too.

Time: 40 mins   /   Serves: 4   /   DIFFICULTY: Easy

Ingredients
6 red peppers
1 red chili
1 aubergine
4 garlic cloves
3 tablespoons olive oil
Salt & pepper
Steps
  • 1.

    Place the peppers and aubergine onto a large griddle plan and cook for 20-30 mins, turning them over every 5 mins to ensure you get an even char. The aubergine may take a little longer than the peppers to cook through.

  • 2.

    Cut the aubergine in half and scoop the inside into a food processor (discard the skin). Next, peel the skin off the peppers, de-seed, and place in with the aubergine.

    Blend for a few seconds, then add in the garlic cloves, olive oil, chili and seasoning.

    Blend again until you have a coarse texture. Serve with toasted bread, tortilla chips or whatever else takes your fancy!
