FINELY DICE them in a food processor with your garlic cloves

POUR that mixture into your deep dish pan with your chopped tomatoes

COOK on medium heat for 30 minutes

NOTES

OVER ACHIEVERS: You can finely dice all these ingredients if you don't have a food processor

SWAPS: You can use other tomatoes that you have available; however, keep an eye on the cook time as it won't need to sit for 30 minutes. Roma tomatoes have more water in them, which is why we cook it for so long - to absorb the water and thicken up. | Feel free to omit the jalapenos and use red pepper flakes | You can use olive oil instead of grapeseed oil

LEFTOVERS: You can store in a tight sealed container in the fridge or freezer

HOW TO USE: Use this as your base for shakshuka, moroccan fish, or just as a dip for your bread
