Grilled aubergines from the oven today. Salsa, yes you can dance it but I prefer to eat it! And the people who have been following me for a while know that I am not a big fan of spicy food. Still, lately I've been experimenting with adding some red pepper. And we see that right away in the title of this recipe: grilled eggplant with spicy salsa. Yes, I finely chopped an, ok small, red pepper and added it to the salsa. Which you could also use for completely different recipes, or delicious with tortilla chips, for example.

Delicious as a salad, but you can also put them on the bbq.

We're getting off topic a bit, but I wanted to tell you about these beautiful eggplants I bought the other day. They had such a beautiful graffiti exterior, with alternating white and purple stripes. It looked like they had been painted by an artist. Unfortunately, you don't see much of that once they're grilled in the oven. They lose their color and become soft and brown. But that doesn't matter for the taste, because they are still delicious and juicy. They have a slightly bitter and smoky flavor that goes well with many dishes.

Don't like spicy? Just omit the pepper.

Eggplants therefore remain a bit of a disadvantaged vegetable. I've written about this before. Yet when I look around me, I see few other food bloggers making recipes like these grilled aubergines from the oven. Such a pity! The first day we ate this it was just warm from the oven. The second day we ate the remaining part as a salad at a bbq. And then I suddenly thought hey, we can also grill the slices briefly on the bbq! And I can tell you that it certainly tasted very good.
