At some point, the scarcity will abate and we’ll go back to enjoying tomato-inspired recipes just like old times, so definitely pay attention to this great hack.
We’ve all been at that point when we desperately need to make a tomato puree but have no ready access to a blender either due to power failure, or simply because we do not own one.
Food vlogger, All Nigerian Recipes shares a simple hack to creating a smooth tomato puree without the use of a blender.
- First off, wash and remove the seeds from your fresh tomatoes and cut them into small pieces,
- Boil till very soft, but do not let the water dry off completely,
- Transfer your boiled tomatoes, while it is very hot, to a wire mess. It’s important to use a wired mesh and not a perforated one as the latter does not do such a great job of making a smooth tomato puree.
- Using a spoon squeeze the tomato through the mesh into a bowl till you have the roughages left in the mess, and a smooth puree in the bowl.
There you have smooth tomato puree, without the use of a blender. So, no more panicking if there’s a sudden power cut while you’re cooking.
