Zakuska or the Best Eggplant- Pepper Spread Ever


This recipe may not be the most exciting ever but believe me, this is heavenly! If you love eggplant (even though, you can hardly taste it), onions, bell pepper and tomato. So incredibly healthy and I wouldn't be lying if I said that I could eat this spread every single day! I already ate it with bread, with fish, with veggies... Ah-mazing! 
I seriously have no idea how I lived without this until now! :) Because I just discovered it the other day when we had lunch in a Transylvanian restaurant. Then and there I fell in love :) So I just had to recreate it on my own!
This recipe makes a lot! Like 4 jars and I'm sure it won't last a month for me! So if you want a healthy and delicious alternative to hummus or butter then this is YOUR recipe :) Hope you'll enjoy!

Zakuska - Eggplant Pepper Spread

6 medium onions - 600 grams - chopped
5 bigger red bell peppers - sliced thinly
2 eggplants
4 dl canned tomato
salt, pepper
2 dl oil

Preheat your oven to 230C. Place your eggplant on a baking sheet and make small cuts all over them. Bake the eggplants for 25-30 minutes.
Using a huge pan, cook the chopped onions in the oil for about 10 minutes. Add salt generously. Add in the bell peppers and cook until they become soft. Add pepper and more salt if desired. 
When the eggplants are ready, remove their skin and chop them into smaller pieces. Add them into the onion-bell pepper mixture and keep cooking. Pour the canned tomatoes in and bring them to a boil. Taste if you need more salt or pepper. 
When it came to a boil, then transfer the mixture to a food processor and process it until smooth and creamy. And that's it!


  1. I'm making this NOW! Wantitwantitwantit :)

    1. Did you?? :) How was it? I ate it for breakfast, lunch, dinner and as a snack! Can you say obsessed? :D

    2. Absolutely delish, the salty equivalent to chocolate-hazelnut cream: you can spread it on a shoe sole and it'll taste good!

  2. What kind of oil did you use? Olive oil or something more neutral like sunflower oil?

    1. Hi! I used canola oil, I think. But it doesn't really matter what kind you use, it will be delicious either way! Let me know if you decided to make it! :)

    2. Thanks for your reply. Quite a coincident: I made your spread right after asking the question, and I decided to go for canola oil as well. It worked out fine and was, indeed, really delicious. There was one thing that disappointed me, thoug: The spread tasted very much of something I know quite well and that I usually buy pre-made – ajvar. Nevertheless, it was absolutely delicious, and now I know how to make ajvar (or something that tastes more or less similar) myself :)

    3. Yeah, they really are similar! Although, I like this one a lot better than ajvar! I think the difference is that this one uses tomatoes and ajvar doesn't so it makes zakuska a bit sweeter. I don't know! :)

  3. try it with cheese like camembert or swiss

  4. how much is "dl" (tomatoes and oil)
