    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Stab eggplant and roast in medium-hot oven along with garlic heads (brush garlic with olive oil) turn occasionally, until eggplant collapses and garlic is soft.
    2. 2
      (You can use parchment paper or silpat pad to line a pan.) Can also be done in a covered grill.
    3. 3
      Chop onion and red pepper.
    4. 4
      After eggplant cools, scoop out flesh, discarding rind, and squeeze roasted garlic cloves into eggplant.
    5. 5
      Either chop or puree eggplant/garlic in a processor or coarsely hand chop the mixture.
    6. 6
      Add the chopped onion and red peppers but don't process further-the caviar should have crunch from these raw ingredients.
    7. 7
      Add olive oil, Kosher salt, black pepper (and optional herbs &/or spices) and mix well.
    8. 8
      Serve with regular or toasted pita, crackers or crudites.

      This is almost a copy of a famous recepie from my hometown of Odessa, Ukraine. I add a small amount of fried onins to counter the bitterness of eggplant. I also use raw garlic instead of fresh. I roast the pepers along with the eggplant. To add a middle-eastern flavor I might add processed cilantro leaves and walnuts. It is my absolutely favorite eggplant recepie.

      I love eggplant, and I'm always looking for new ways to prepare it. This is definitely one :) I've made it twice in the past few weeks. Loved the flavor and the coarsly chopped peppers and onions gave it a good texture (not a fan of cumin, so I omitted it). I had this for supper spread on 7 grain whole wheat toast...very yummy. Also served it with crackers as an appetizer, and it was enjoyed by all.
