TOMATO GREEN CHILI SAFFRON SAUCE

TOMATO SAFFRON SAUCE OVER PIEROGI

Red Gold Diced Tomatoes with Chi-Chi Green Chilies, Roland Classic Coconut Milk, cilantro, garlic, coriander saffron. Ladled over JJ Wilk Potato and Onion Pierogi! Topped with fresh cilantro garnish and a wedge of fresh lemon!

Makes approx. 6 cups sauce

Sauce:

14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes (I used RED GOLD brand)

4.25 oz. can CHI-CHI’s Diced Green Chilies

10-3/4 oz. can condensed tomato soup (I used Campbell’s brand)

1 t. onion powder

2 t. garlic powder (or use fresh chopped – as many cloves as you like)

2 t. ground coriander

1 t. dried tarragon

1 t. dried basil

1/4 t. red cayenne pepper

1/8 t. ground allspice

1-2 pinches saffron or to taste

1-2 t. sugar

freshly ground black pepper

juice of 1 lemon, plus a couple more lemons for a squeeze garnish

14 oz. can Roland’s Classic Coconut Milk

1 fresh, med. size tomato, cut into 3/8 inch cubes

a couple handfuls of fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped

1 pkg. froz. JJ Wilks Supreme Pierogi – potato and onion flavor, cooked according to package instructions, then drained.

extra virgin olive oil


Combine all ingredients, except tomato, cilantro and pierogi, in large saucepan, over medium heat. Cook about 20 minutes, stirring often.

Add tomato and cilantro, cook another 10 minutes on low heat. Salt to taste.

Cook pierogi. Place 4 in shallow soup bowl. Cover with sauce. Drizzle with olive oil.Top with cilantro, and a lemon wedge for squeezing. Serve.

Notes: Tomato Saffron Sauce can also be used as a dipping sauce for French baguette slices. Place in individual small bowls for guests, drizzle with olive oil, top with cilantro and lemon, surround with bread pieces and serve.

PAN-FRIED SUPREME PIEROGI POTATO AND ONION

If you’d prefer to pan-fry the pierogi after boiling them, that’s okay too. Drain in colander, then let them air-dry a bit before placing in hot oiled skillet to cook till golden brown on both sides. A little salt, pepper and garlic powder works well.
