Tomato sauce

It’s so easy to make tomato sauce. And, also so healthy. Is great for pizza, pasta and any time you want to use tomato sauce. Even as a dip. My cooking inspiration is Jamie Oliver. Maybe you don’t agree with me, but I find his recipes very healthy and kind of amazing.

You can find his site here : Jamie Oliver. I wanna try more recipes and I will tell you more how it went. So, as I said, I started with his recipe for tomato sauce and change it a little bit. Here is mine. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

–   4 cloves garlic, peeled and finely sliced

–   1 bunch fresh basil, leaves picked and torn

–   3 x 400 g good-quality tinned plum tomatoes

–  salt

– freshly ground black pepper

– 1 tablespoon ginger

– 1 tablespoon oregano

– olive oil

Directions:

Place a non-stick frying pan on the heat and pour in olive oil. Add the garlic, shake the pan around a bit and, once the garlic begins to color lightly, add the basil and the tomatoes. Using the back of a wooden spoon, mush and squash the tomatoes as much as you can.  Be careful not to get dirty. It will take you a while to clean everything. You can squash them in a bowl and add them already squashed.

Add salt  and pepper. As soon as it comes to the boil, remove the pan from the heat. Put everything in a bowl and blend it a little bit.  Pour the sauce back into the pan, bring to the boil, add ginger and oregano, and then turn the heat down and simmer for 5 minutes to concentrate the flavors. Store the sauce in a clean jar in the fridge  maximum a week.
