Exotic sweet ‘n’ sour flavours are dynamite with tomatoes. This is the way to use up tomatoes that have reached their juicy prime. Fabulous as a side dish with grilled steak or butterflied leg of lamb or chops. Or try as a burger topper. Best eaten the same day they’re made. From Chatelaine Magazine. Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut tomatoes in half. Gently squeeze out and discard seeds, then coarsely chop. Place in a large bowl with shallots.
  2. Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add garlic and dried seasonings. Stir frequently until evenly coated and fragrant, 30 seconds. Add vinegar, sugar and salt. Boil, stirring continuously, about 3 minutes. Add tomatoes and stir just until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in cilantro or basil.

A nice variation on a sauce. Good flavor medley. I had it on eggs and potatoes. I can imagine it's fantastic on hamburgers.

We loved these tomatoes! They are a nice spicy, sweet side dish or condiment. We used these like ketchup on your Morrocan Burgers With Spicy Mayo and everyone loved them. My son and daughter asked if I would make the "ketchup" for burgers everytime I make them now. That is a sign of a sure winner. Thanks Nif. Made for the Moroccan and Tunisian round of ZWT9 for team Tasty Testers.
