DIRECTIONS

  • Put the tomatoes in a baking dish, drizzle with oil & season, cook in oven at 160 c for approx 20 minutes Remove skins & set aside.
  • Gently fry the shallots/onions & garlic 'til golden. Add the tomatoes & stock. Bring to the boil then simmer gently for at least 20 mins then add basil & liquidise/blend. Continue simmering for a couple of minutes or if you want it thicker, leave to cook until desired consistency.
  • (a pinch of sugar is good if tomatoes aren't nice & sweet).
  • This freezes well & is a good sauce base. If you want it as soup add a little cream/creme fraiche etc.
