Quick and Fresh Tomato Sauce Recipe
How to Make Quick and Fresh Tomato Sauce
- Remove skin from tomatoes and scoop out the seeds. Cut the tomatoes in half and purée in a blender or food processor.
- Heat the tomato purée in a low, wide saucepan over high heat. Add salt, olive oil, tomato paste, garlic and basil leaves. Bring to a boil, add in sugar and season to taste.
- Lower heat to a brisk simmer and cook until the sauce is reduced by almost half, stirring occasionally. A medium-thick sauce will take about 10 to 15 minutes.
- Taste and adjust seasoning.
Tip: Add other herbs like chopped oregano for extra flavour.
Note: Fresh tomato sauce will keep up to 5 days in the refrigerator or may be frozen.
