Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a skillet, saute the shallot and garlic in 1 tablespoon of the olive oil over medium-low heat. Add the broth and simmer until liquid has reduced to 1/2 cup.
  2. Add the tomatoes and thyme sprig to skillet and cook until liquid from tomatoes has mostly reduced and thickened a bit.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the lemon juice with 1 tablespoon water, then whisk in the butter.
  4. Scrape tomato mixture into a blender jar. Add the vinegars and blend briefly, just to puree tomatoes. Scrape tomato mixture into a small bowl, then whisk in butter mixture and remaining 4 tablespoons olive oil. Adjust seasonings by adding additional vinegar, olive oil, a bit of butter and the salt and pepper, to taste.
