From Ross Dobson. Very yummy and easy tomato sauce, if you like throw in some (50g) baby spinach after processing. I successfully made this without the oil, just replaced it with water.
- 810 g whole tomatoes (large tin)
- 1 large onion, peeled and cut into wedges
- 2 garlic cloves, sliced
- 4 -6 anchovies
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1⁄4 cup olive oil
- 1⁄2 cup water
- Have your oven hot and preheated to 180°C.
- Place the tomatoes, and the juice, in a baking tray with the onion wedges, garlic and anchovies scattered over top.
- Sprinkle over sea salt and sugar.
- Pour over the olive oil and water and roast for 1 1/2 hours, stirring every 20 minutes.
- Towards the end of the cooking time use a wooden spoon to scrape up any of the well cooked bits around the edge of the tray. If it looks like it is drying out too much add a little more water.
- Place in a food processor (I used a hand blender) and whiz for a few seconds to a smooth sauce (as smooth as you like it). Enjoy straight away or refrigerate until ready to use.
Great recipe Chickee. I made this to serve over vegetable skewers and it really lifted the taste. Don't forget to use the anchovies, they make this recipe.
i really enjoyed this, I made it for tea last night and got many nice comments from mum and dad. i had mine over penne pasta ad belended it till it still had a few chunky peices in it. very nice thank you very much
