RE: Szuchow guide to tasty food.
Eggplant - when I was in Rumania, a lady gave us some eggplant dish she made and it was heavenly. I have never seen it again, and I tried to make something like it and never succeeded.

I am not even sure if it was a side dish or a dip - we used it as a dip for bread sticks because that was what we had on hand.

It was creamy and smooth and primarily eggplant. I did taste some onion in there, and I think some yellow paprika and lemon? It was not spicy, but it had a flavor all of it's own. It was very rich and smooth.

Any ideas what this might have been? It's been like 30 years since I had this and it's still on my mind, it was that good.

From what I looked it could be some variant of ajvar where paprika is added, but not lemon. In Greek melitzanosalata there is lemon but no paprika and Baba ghanoush looks kinda same with only trace of paprika being chili spice.

I found some allegedly Romanian recipes but there was no paprika in them.

I should check into all of these then, my memory of the taste may be wrong, it's been a long time. I doubt it was Greek, I probably would have come across it, I spent a lot of time there at a later date. The lady was a local farmer and I doubt she had travelled...

Quick google search came up with nothing, but it could be dish so local that it doesn't made it into internet.

My guess would be on some variation of ajvar with lemon added.

I do have to say though, the white sausage one, even though it sounds a little racist Tongue it does sound delicious.

I prefer black ones. They're longer.

It being white is just tip of the iceberg considering the original name: Weisswurst.
