QUICK TOMATO SAUCE WITH CHICKPEAS

This is the Quick Tomato Sauce with Chickpeas we usually serve with our Koshary. It’s ready in under 30 minutes and can also be eaten with a side of rice, pasta or bread. Don’t worry if you don’t have preserved lemons, while they are great for this sauce they can easily be replaced with lemon zest.



Serves 4

4 tbsp olive oil 2 garlic cloves, crushed chili 2 cans of tomatoes 250 ml water ½ preserved lemon (optional) 4 tbsp apple cider vinegar 2 tsp salt 2 tsp. cumin 1 can chickpeas, drained fresh cilantro


Heat olive oil in a saucepan and sauté garlic and chili for 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, water, preserved lemon, vinegar, salt and cumin and bring to a boil. Then simmer on low heat for about 20 minutes, add the chickpeas and simmer for another 5 minutes. Add the cilantro and keep warm.
