Taktouka is a fresh salad made out of fresh vegetables like tomatoes, onions, paprika, peppers.The word “Taktouka” (Arabic:طقطوقة) is derived from “taktak” (Arabic:طقطق) which means “to grind” in Arabic.
3 cloves garlic
3 bell peppers (we use red, green, and yellow)
A generous glug of olive oil
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon turmeric
A handful of chopped fresh parsley and coriander Salt and pepper, to taste
Halve the tomatoes, mince the garlic, and slice the peppers.
Grate the tomato halves over a saucepan and discard the skin that will naturally peel off.
Warm the resulting tomato pulp over medium heat and then pour in a generous glug of olive oil.
Plop in the peppers, garlic, spices, and parsley and coriander.
Sauté for 15-20 minutes and serve warm. It’s as easy as that!
