Tomato Paste: Frequently Asked Questions
What’s The Difference Between Tomato Paste And Tomato Sauce?
Both tomato sauce and tomato paste are concentrated tomato products with a low water content. While they are both super rich and flavorful tomato products, tomato paste owns a thicker consistency. Tomato sauce, on the other hand, is of a pourable consistency. Adding tomato paste to a sauce is also a great way to thicken it up.
What’s The Difference Between Tomato Paste And Tomato Puree?
Tomato paste and tomato purée are both canned tomato products with many uses in the kitchen, but very different in how they are made and what they can add to your recipes. Tomato purée is an uncooked tomato product that has been strained of skins and seeds. It is pourable in consistency and is used to add fresh tomato flavor. Tomato paste is a concentrated product—imagine lots of tomatoes packed into a tiny can. Just a small amount of tomato paste adds a lot of flavor to your dishes.
Can I Freeze Tomato Paste?
Yes, you can freeze tomato paste. There are plenty of ways to freeze extra tomato paste, but we suggest doing it in tablespoon-sized servings. Using a small scoop or tablespoon, scoop out the tomato paste onto a parchment-lined baking sheet to freeze. Once frozen, store the tomato paste portions in an air-tight container or bag. Take out a tablespoon or two when you need an extra tomato-y boost in your recipes.
What Are The Best Tomato Paste Substitutes?
If you realize you are out of tomato paste, there are some substitutes you can find in your kitchen. The best substitute for tomato paste is tomato sauce. Believe it or not, another great tomato paste substitute is ketchup. It is thick and flavorful. Tomato purée can also be used, but it will require about a 3-to-1 ratio of tomato purée to tomato paste (i.e. 3 tablespoons of tomato purée is equal to 1 tablespoon of tomato paste.)
Can I Convert Tomato Sauce Into Tomato Paste?
If you have tomato sauce, you can cook it down to create a concentrated tomato paste. To create tomato paste from tomato sauce, simmer the sauce in a pot for 8-10 minutes, stirring continuously, until it is reduced by half.
