Vegetable dishes of Georgian cuisine are mostly salad or appetizer. Moreover, vegetables can be eaten raw, but more often boiled, fried or baked on a fire. The peculiarity of eggplant dishes lies in the sharpness of taste, supplemented with garlic, fragrant spices, nuts and herbs. True, many years ago, Georgian chefs used seasonings to a minimum to prepare their spicy snacks, being content with garlic, hot peppers, lots of greens and walnuts. It is walnuts that are revered in Georgia above all others. Our eggplants with Georgian walnuts will be initially cooked in the oven by baking, and then transformed into a snack. Bulgarian pepper (sweet and bitter) is used as an additional ingredient.
Variations of the dish
Roasted vegetables are a great source of fiber and vitamins. In the process of baking, we completely abandoned the use of fats and salt. What made our dish especially useful. Moreover, eggplants and peppers were cooked directly in the peel and thus retained all the vitamins and juices inside the pulp. Only moisture completely unnecessary for the salad stood out.
