"Matbucha (Mott-Boo-Chah) is a cooked tomato and roasted bell peppers salad that is popular in Israel, Morocco and throughout the Middle East. The name Matbucha literally means 'cooked salad' in Arabic. It is usually served as a side dish, but it also works well over fish." — JEFF144MAN

I had high hopes for this recipe. It has all the ingredients we love. It just didn't measure up. To begin with we ended up cooking it way longer than 2 hours to get the extra liquid to evaporate. Then when we served it the next day as a side it was not well liked. There was a lot left over. I tried to salvage it and make a sauce but something about the flavor and the skins just didn't work.
