This thick tomato soup with ajvar, proso millet and vegetables makes a whole meal, full of wonderful flavour thanks to home-made ajvar, which is the main ingredient.

Tomato soup with pindjur

Refreshing home-made tomato soup is always welcome on the table, especially during summer months when we can use juicy, fresh tomato to make it. And when we boost its flavour with authentic home-made pinđur and serve it with a bit of sour cream and a slice of good bread, it seems like it can't get better, right?

Barley and pindjur stew

To prepare this dish, you'll need a deep casserole dish that can be used for both stove- and oven-cooking.
Chop the onion into thin slices and braise it lightly in pre-heated oil. Add all ingredients except parsley, then add slices of dried tomatoes, cubes of fresh tomatoes, and large chunks of carrot.

Seared pasta with lenten ajvar and lentil sauce

We are all fans of crispy oven-seared pasta, but this particular juicy and really simple version is a real feast for all senses. The main ingredient is lenten lentil Bolognese sauce with the addition of authentic home-made ajvar. You can also sneak in and sear with this sauce any type of vegetable or cheese which you have at hand, but this is optional. It will taste great anyway.

Omelet with ajvar

Omelet, one of those dishes we start to like as children and of which we are never bored.
We're sure you already know that for a good omelet, the most important thing is that the eggs are fresh, and the oil is hot. If you can find farm fresh eggs in addition to that, there’s a healthy, quick and delicious meal.

Sweet potato and aubergine bruschette

We call them bruschette even though they’re not made from bread. Let's say that these mouth-watering snacks made from sweet potato and aubergine are a healthy version of bruschette and a more fun one, too, not only thanks to their taste, but also because of the variety of colours that lure us into indulgence in food.
