Ajvar is a smoky roasted-pepper-and-eggplant relish found across the Balkans. This version, from chef Jessica Koslow, can be made in minutes and is great with juicy grilled steak. Slideshow: Eggplant Recipes

How to Make It

Step 1    

Roast the eggplant over a gas flame, turning occasionally, until charred all over and tender within, 6 minutes. Discard the stem and skin.

Step 2    

In a food processor, pulse the eggplant with the peppers, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice and parsley until chunky. Transfer to a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Serve with steak.
