How Do You Spell Tomato Backwards?

Otamot! Such is the name of a tomato sauce which is now debuting at grocery stores as well as online.

The brain child of Andrew Suzuka and award winning chef Maxime Bilet, the sauce is as pure and savory as they come.

The inspiration behind the product came from Andrew’s frustrating efforts to find something that would be appealing to his kids while being nutritious at the same time. Most kids enjoy pasta but many sauces can contain high fructose corn syrup and preservative ingredients that provide great taste but are not necessarily the best for growing children. What’s a dad to do?

Teaming up with Maxime, the co-author of Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking, these two guys decided to try something a bit revolutionary in the world of jar foods—creating a product that was absolutely pure in intent and execution. And that’s exactly what otamot sauce provides. The ingredient list couldn’t be simpler: vine ripened tomato, carrot, water, red bell pepper, sweet potato, butternut squash, extra virgin olive oil, spinach, red beet, nutritional yeast, leek, sweet onion, garlic, salt, lemon juice, grapeseed oil and portobello mushroom. That’s it!

With some chicken meatballs, plenty of Parmesan cheese, a dash of basil and black pepper and a glass of red wine–the perfect sauce for adults too!

Non-GMO and vitamin rich, the sauce is delicious and can also be used in soups and a variety of other dishes. It’s an all-purpose go-to that is great for the whole family. With a thick density it is also good value as a little bit goes a long way; you can always add a little water if you prefer your sauce lighter.

Subtitled an “Essential Sauce” it lives up to its name and is hard to resist. You may even find yourself eating it straight from the jar—delizioso!

Available at select grocery stores as well as online in a two or four-pack box.
