  • Chop or grind all ingredients together, then blend in portions until smooth. Press through a strainer to remove any pulp.

  • Tomato Paste - 1 teaspoon powder and 1 teaspoon water.
  • Tomato Sauce - 1 teaspoon powder and 3 teaspoons water.

  • Tomato Juice - 1 teaspoon powder and 1/2 cup water or more.
