Zacusca – Romanian Vegetable Spread

Zacusca – Romanian Vegetable Spread

A friend of mine from Romania thought me how to make this delicious spread.  You can serve it with crackers, toast or any type of bread.


  • 3 Eggplants
  • 5 Pimentos
  • 3 Carrots
  • 1 teaspoon tomato paste
  • 1 – 2 teaspoons salt
  • pepper to taste


  1. Roast the peppers and the eggplants (see Pimientos Morrones and Baba Ghanoush)
  2. Cook the peeled carrots in a little bit of water until tender.
  3. Place all ingredients in a food processor (discard the eggplant peel and peel the pimentos and discard the seeds first).
  4. Blend.  Refrigerate before serving.
