The times I most enjoy cooking is when the dish reminds me of someone ... takes me back to a special place in time ... or the produce was given to me by someone ... forever linking that person to the dish made. I have many such beautiful memories of family and friends.

This tomato and onion smoor (relish) is one such nostalgic dish. It's so convenient to make and quite simply, yummy! A perfect side dish for those days when you need something quick, wholesome and full of flavour.

Serve as a side with breakfast; great with fish cakes and mashed potatoes; best on a favourite South African treat, boerewors rolls.
