"Ketchup is the perfect balance of sweet, salty, sour and savory. We didn't think it could be improved upon until we added the rich bitterness of tehina, the funkiness of amba and the earthy heat of harissa. Wow! Works on absolutely everything," says Michael Solomonov, author of cookbook Israeli Soul (he's also the chef at Zahav in Philadelphia, a must-stop for Rach whenever she's in town).

Try it with french fries and tater tots or falafel (get Solomonov's Goldie Falafel recipe here).
