Matbucha - 10 ounces
This Middle-East spicy tomato condiment (made in NY) is a must have for your pantry.
The elements are simple - little more than peak-season tomatoes, hot green chiles, and garlic, with patience as the secret ingredient. Cooked together low and slow, these ingredients transform into a luscious, deeply concentrated and intensely flavored ‘cooked salad’ or sauce that pairs effortlessly with just about everything.
Serve it over pasta (with meatballs or without!) for a Moroccan spin on marinara. ; or up your hamburger and hot dog game, using matbucha in place of ketchup.
Simmer fish or chicken in matbucha to make a lavish stew with minimal prep. Use matbucha as a braising sauce for vegetables (green beans, potatoes, eggplant and more!); stir it into cooked lentils, chickpeas, and beans; and make it your new favorite sandwich spread . Or simply swirl it onto hummus or labneh just before serving.
