I first tasted this perfection when a friend brought some over for game night a while back. It was an original creation of his and I could not get enough. Unfortunately, when I asked for the recipe, there was added sweetener. So naturally I stole the idea and made my own, Whole30 compliant version. This is the condiment that will change your life. Spicy tomato magic.
Small sauce pan
Heat safe spoon
1 can fire roasted diced tomatoes
1/2 cup olive or avocado oil
2 tbsp Aleppo pepper flakes
Salt to taste
Combine the tomatoes, oil, and Aleppo pepper in a small sauce pot. Stir well. Bring to a bubble (not full boil) over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
Taste and adjust seasoning to preference. I like it spicy and salty, but you can definitely go for a more mild approach and it’ll still be yummy. Just keep in mind the flavors will intensify a bit as it cooks down!
Once bubbling, lower temperature to simmer and continue to cook until reduced by 1/3 (about one hour). During this time, check periodically to make sure the bottom isn’t burning and to give it a good stir.
Transfer to a heat safe container and store in the fridge for up to a week. Enjoy on every morsel of food that approaches your face. I particularly love it on eggs.
