One day my Romanian friend was describing one of Romanian delicacy’s. It is called zacusca, a vegetable spread made from roasted aubergine, roasted red peppers, tomatos and chopped onion. A few days later I found it in one of the shops on Leith Walk in Edinburgh. So I bought it and spread it on a bread like she said. I loved it from the first bite. Few months later she brought a jar from Romania, made by her mother- in- law, it was fantastic. So zacusca is nice with bread, pasta, crackers, the list could be endless… and today I tryed it with baguette pizza – beautiful :)
Martushka’s husband fryed mushrooms with onion, added salt and pepper
He cut the baguette into long slices, put fried mushrooms and cheese on top
He preheated the oven to 180°C, 356F. Put it in for about 10 minutes.
Usually he’s serving it with tomato sauce but today we spreaded zacusca on the top
It was a good choice!
