http://kosherfood.about.com/od/kosherappetizerrecipes/r/matbucha.htm Matboucha, a traditional Moroccan dish, is so popular in Israel that it can be found right next to the Hummus on Israeli grocery store shelves. Once you make it yourself, you won't want to settle for store-bought Matboucha anymore.

Recipe Ingredients for Matboucha

6 ripe tomatoes, cubed
6 cloves garlic, crushed
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and sliced
1/3 cup olive oil (or canola)
2 tablespoons paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Recipe Directions for Matboucha

  1. Dice tomatoes, pepper and garlic. Place in a 3-quart saucepan.

  2. Over medium heat, uncovered, cook the mixture for 20 minutes. Stir frequently with a wooden spoon.

  3. When the vegetables are nice and soft, add the oil and spices. Cook for another 10 minutes. Stir frequently with a wooden spoon.

  4. When the mixture is well blended and most of the liquid has evaporated, the matboucha is ready. Cool and store in a covered container in the refrigerator.

  5. Serving Suggestions: Matboucha can be served hot or cold, on a crackers or fresh pita or bread. We even use it as a sauce on our pasta.
