I can't have enough of this, since I made it last week, I haven't eaten anything else for snack or lunch.
This spread reminds me of the Balkan's legendary ajvar, it's just the method of prep is different but still deliver a explosion of taste....
5 Tbsp olive oil
1 aubergine, diced
1 courgette, diced
1 red or yellow pepper, diced
1 - 2 hot chilies ( optional )
1 large onion, diced
2 carrots, grated
3 big tomatoes, diced
2 garlic cloves
Heat the oil in a large frying pan.
Add the aubergines, courgettes, pepper, chilies and onions as well as salt and pepper and saute until lightly caramelised, about 20 - 25 minutes.
Whizz all the caramelised veggies in a food processor then put them back in the frying pan, add the carrots and the tomatoes.
Cook over a medium heat for an hour, stirring from time to time until you have a thick paste.
Add the garlic right in the end. Add some more oil if is dry. Season it with salt and pepper .
Store this spread into a sterilized jar in the fridge for two weeks.
