Ajvar refers to roasted eggplant mixed with sweet pepper. It is sometimes also referred to as vegetarian caviar. Ajvar can be either mashed or you can eat it chunky. It’s all up to your preference. The dish can be served as a relish or you could choose to have it as a vegetable or a spread on some white bread made in country style as an appetizer. It has a smoky flavor which makes it a great match for both roasted and grilled lamb. Avjar is also often served alongside cevaps sausage which sometimes is also called cevapcici and a type of bread known as lepinje.
You can also use Avjar as a cooking ingredient. It has this mild saltiness and is rich in terms of texture making it easy for use in pasta. It’s also great for use as the base for a creation that’s more flavorful. The ripe red color of Avjar will add that extra pop to your risotto and will give cohesion and some bite to bean or grain salads when served along with some crisp vegetables. If you want to use it as a starter use it for soup that’s pureed and chilled, some cheater’s gazpacho.
