When I was about fifteen, my dad came home from a business trip with half a bushel of tomatoes and about five pounds of basil...so we had a bit of fun with it! Now a family favorite, and I always make extra if I need it after my roommate gets ahold of it!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Chop tomatoes into small pieces for stewing, removing the seeds and juice if thicker sauce is desired.
  2. Dice onions and mince garlic. In large pot, saute onions and garlic in olive oil and/or apple cider until onions are just translucent and soft.
  3. Add in tomatoes and basil, let stew on medium heat for 1/2 hour, stirring occasionally.
  4. When tomatoes have softened into a "mush", bring just to a boil, then add salt and peppers and simmer for one hour.
  5. Serve chunky or puree with immersion blender.
