Tomato Paste Tips

Leggo’s Tomato Paste is a “concentrated” flavour-maker and excellent basic ingredient in any kitchen.

Mix with:
  • Mayonnaise or salad dressings.
  • Spices and a little oil as a marinade.
  • Natural yoghurt, curry paste or spices to make chicken or lamb marinade.
  • Oil, mustard, garlic and Worcestershire sauce to make a BBQ steak or kebab marinade.
  • A spoonful of soy sauce, honey, sherry, garlic to create an Asian style marinade.
  • Melted butter, crushed garlic, cracked black pepper, fresh basil and oregano and spread onto focaccia or sliced Italian bread stick. Wrap in foil and warm in a hot oven.
  • Red wine, balsamic glaze or lemon juice, garlic and crushed black peppercorns and brush onto lamb cutlets, beef steaks, chicken fillets or king prawns.

Add to:

Home cooked breads, muffins, scones and loaves, hamburgers, rissoles, patties and meat loaf mixtures.

Spread on:

Pizza bases, focaccia & pita breads, savoury muffins, bruschetta or toasted sandwiches and schnitzel.

For an added flavour boost, stir into:

Soups, sauces & gravies, risottos, casseroles, curries and tagines, quiches, fritters and cheese dishes and vegetable stock.

Storage Tips:

  • Always use a clean spoon when adding paste from larger jars.
  • Spoon tomato paste into a plastic resealable container, freeze, then tip into a plastic bag, seal and keep in the freezer for instant use.
  • Once a jar is open, cover tomato paste with a thin layer of oil to prevent the air coming into contact with the product. Store in the refrigerator.
