BASIC TOMATO SAUCE

Posted 15-07-2016

I make this a lot at home. In big batches, jarred, frozen or just stored in the fridge. With Mr R being half Italian, my all time favourite vegetable (fruit) being tomato and a daughter obsessed with tomato sauce, this is a must have staple in the fridge!

Ingredients

5-7 big tomatoes deseeded and peeled
 
1 carrot
 
1 courgette
 
2 cloves of garlic
 
1/2 onion
 
Olive oil
 
2 cup (480 grams) of orange juice
 
Pinch of salt

Method

Chop and peel all vegetables. Tomatoes need to be peeled and deseeded. Seeds are the reason some sauces have an astringent and funny after taste.
 
Start of by frying of the onions and garlic with some olive oil until soft.
 
Then add carrots, courgettes and tomatoes with a pinch of salt, orange juice and cook on a low heat for 30-40 minutes until tomatoes have caramelised and you are left with a sticky lovely sauce.
 
Set aside to cool down. Blend until you have a creamy beautiful tomato sauce.
 
Store in a glass jar and use for everything! I do.
