How to make Tomapep puree from scratch

Tomapep puree is a puree made from a blend of tomato and pepper. Its preferably made from scratch and this is because it gives a unique freshness and taste to dishes it’s prepared with unlike most tinned tomato puree. It’s use is not restricted to stews alone but also soups, sauces and rice dishes. It could also be stored in the refrigerator and this could come in handy to save time during rush hours.

Prep time: 10 minutes
•Cook time: 30 minutes
•Total time: 40 minutes
Ingredients:::
•4 Red/Yellow Scotch bonnets (I used red)
•1 Red Onion

Preparation:::
Step 1: Remove the seeds from the tatashey & peel the skins from the onions and garlic

Step 2:  Wash the tatashey(Without the seeds), onions, scotch bonnets, chilies, garlic, tomatoes and place in a food processor

Step 3: Blend them all into a smooth puree

Step 4: Pour the puree into a pot and boil for about 30 mins till the water dries up in the pot leaving just the puree

Step 5: This can either be refrigerated or used immediately for any dish

To increase its shelf life, it’s advisable to fry it in vegetable oil before cooling and storing in the refrigerator.

    1. Just a little...the smallest size would do just fine. It's a matter of preference though.
