An experiment with a bottle of peat-smoked tomato juice I was gifted… I wanted to see how a smokey flavoured tomato juice would work in a pasta sauce with the addition of onions, garlic, herbs and chilli… I am soo glad I tried this because DAMN, IT WAS GOOD!! Next level flavour which I now want in every tomato sauce I ever make!!!
The meatballs were cooked to perfection, crisp and charred on the outside but still soft, juicy and tender on the inside. Made with minced lamb and pork then mixed with sautéed onions and garlic, cumin, coriander, paprika, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, some fresh coriander and panko breadcrumbs. Combined with the smokey, garlicky, spicy tomato sauce, it was a match made in heaven.
Tongue in Peat is the Tomato juice I used; it’s known as “the ultimate Bloody Mary mixer”, so my question is, why use this just for a drink??? This juice is infused with peat smoke giving it such a vibrant and deep taste which is all created naturally… I want to replace the bottles of passata/ tomato sauce I have stashed in my pantry with these smoked ones… Only available from their online shop, link in their Instagram bio @tongueinpeat… order yours today, and I promise you will thank me!!
