Basic Tomato sauce

 

  • A little olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed (optional)
  • 1 can (approx. 400g) tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons of tomato puree
  • 1 or 2 Tablespoons of oregano or mixed herbs
  • 1 cup of veg. stock or water
  • pepper to taste

 

Fry the onion and garlic in the oil for a few minutes until softened. Add the tomatoes, puree, stock or water, pepper and herbs and simmer gently for about 15 minutes.

That is the basic sauce - you can serve it as it is over cooked pasta, or add anything you like to it.

i.e.

Any vegetables chopped and added with the tomatoes and then simmered until soft.

Mince for a more traditional bolognese type sauce.

Soya Mince for a vegetarian option.
