Otamot Products

Currently, Otamot has three flavors of sauces: Essential, Carrot Bolognese, and Spicy. All of these are organic, gluten-free, and plant-based with 8-10 vegetables inside. The base vegetables in each of the flavors are similar, with amounts of: vine-ripened tomato, carrot, red bell pepper, sweet potato, butternut squash, red beet, sweet onion and shiitake mushroom.

Organic Essential Sauce: A good “everything sauce.” In addition to the vegetables above, this one also includes spinach!

Organic Carrot Bolognese Sauce: Vegetable bolognese filled with extra diced carrots.

Spicy Organic Sauce: this includes a 3-pepper blend of red jalapeno, crushed red pepper and chile powder. I like spicy but I need to be careful to not over-pour this one, you definitely taste the heat!

How to Eat the Sauces

These sauces are thicker than your average tomato sauce, because they are packed with good whole foods! I find these make a great base for pizza or any pasta dish because they aren’t watered down. Though if you find you like a thinner sauce, you can dilute it with water or broth to reach the desired consistency.

A little can go a long way! Especially with the spicy sauce (just because of the heat level), start with less than you think you need and you can work your way up if needed. I love red sauce so I have to pace myself with Otamot!

The sauces are highly versatile and you can use them anywhere you would use regular tomato sauce – stews, veggies, spaghetti, pizza night – and since they are more concentrated they also make a great dip, or as a spread for sub sandwiches!

It would be a great way to sneak in veggies and vitamins with grandma’s famous baked ziti recipe!

You can also simply dilute the sauce and eat it on its own and it’s still a well-balanced meal. Proportions from their website:

  • Thick soup: Dilute 1 cup Otamot with 1/2 cup liquid.
  • Thinner soup: Dilute 1 cup Otamot with 3/4 cup liquid.
  • Cream Soup: Dilute 1 cup Otamot with ½ cup milk and ½ cup heavy cream.
