On the southern Caribbean island of Bonaire where we lived for 7 years, this popular,delicious sauce was often served with the "catch of the day," hot rice, and fried plaintains (large cooking bananas.) Follow the recipe or be creative! A wonderful compliment for any grilled meat!

- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 stalk celery, chopped (optional)
- 1 tomatoes, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed

- 2 tablespoons ketchup
- 1 tablespoon butter or 1 tablespoon margarine
- 1 bouillon cube (use flavor that would compliment meat you are serving)

- Serve with chicken, fish, or any meat of your choice, with hot rice.

A really delicious sauce, perfect over rice. I made it without the butter and it was still great; we had it over bowls of brown rice and tofu.
This is incredibly good stuff. I used veg-friendly Worcestershire sauce, and had no tomato paste on hand, but it's still flat-out yummy. Served with baked tofu and white rice - - and I have to add that this concoction on white rice will make you want to eat an entire pot of it. Definitely a keeper!
