Favorite Tomato Paste

This is hands down, bar none my absolute favorite tomato paste. You’ve probably noticed by now that more than 50% of Greek vegan dishes contain tomato paste so this is a staple and very important ingredient. If your tomato paste is of a lesser quality your entire dish will suffer.  And no, it’s not just the Greek in me being dramatic!

San Marzano Tomato Paste

Made with just  San Marzano plum tomatoes and salt, the fresh tomato taste bursts out of the tube with every squeeze.

It’s funny because the reason I tried this brand in the first place is because I was tired of using half or 3/4 of the small tomato paste cans and either wasting or collecting half empty cans that went bad quickly once opened. This comes in a resealable tube like ones for toothpaste.

San Marzano Tomato Paste hails from Italy, as does another of the Greek Vegan’s favorites, and packs some serious tomato flavor. The tube design is amazingly functional and allows me to measure out just what I need,  twist the cover back on and pop into the fridge for next time.

squeeze the exact amount you need each time

This keeps it fresh and keeps waste to a minimum.  When it’s almost empty, I simply roll the tube up from the bottom to coax out every last drop. Go ahead, give it a squeeze and taste it right from the tube, it’s really is that good.

so delicious!

I buy in at my local Italian Specialty Shop but you can pick it up online if it’s not available in your area. Try it in your next recipe and let me know what you think. I promise it will not disappoint!
