Tomato Paste

(Tomato Paste)  Tomato paste is made by cooking tomatoes for several hours until enough of the water is boiled off to reduce the tomatoes to a thick red concentrate.  The cooked tomato concentrate is them strained and packaged for sale.  Tomato paste is most commonly found packaged in 6-oz. cans.  When purchasing tomato paste, look at the label to make sure that the only ingredient is tomatoes.  We use tomato paste in a wide variety of dishes such as soups, stews, and sauces.  Tomato paste is also the least expensive way to add a tomato flavor to a recipe. Tomato paste is also a great source of lycopene.  See the nutritional chart below.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
