Savory Strawberry Spread

This is a fantastic spread to keep in your fridge at all times (an alternative to ketchup). Subtly sweet, and a bit tangy, it's the perfect compliment to veggie burgers and yam fries. It also pairs well in a chickpea and lettuce wrap, and even tastes good heated and served on pasta!

Savory Strawberry Spread
1 1/2 cups fresh strawberries
1 can (plain) tomato paste
3 tsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp agave nectar (optional)
salt and pepper

Blend all of the ingredients in a food processor until smooth (the consistency should be like that of ketchup).
