Delicious Home Made Tomato Sauce
You don’t need to resort to canned tomato sauce or even the glass jar stuff from health food shops: most of these have –
-too much salt, the processed kind
-sugar or other sweeteners added
-some sort of preservative- even ‘natural’ preservatives are far from ideal, they are there to extend shelf life
-thickeners- usually corn or soy emulsifier
It’s actually very quick and easy to whip up your own tomato sauce that is completely free of the above nasties, lasts in the fridge 5-6 days in a screw-top jar and is so delicious and healthy that you can drown everything in it!
About the ingredients:
Parsley- high in antioxidants, amazing detoxifier
Garlic- immune boosting and anti-bacterial
Tomatoes- full of antioxidants such as lycopene
-4 ripe tomatoes
-4 cloves of garlic
-1/2 bunch of parsley
-salt and pepper to taste
-olive oil for cooking
Makes 1 jar (roughly 250mL).
Finely dice garlic and tomatoes and cook in olive oil until soft and juicy (3-5 mins). Add salt and pepper to taste. Add parsley and cook for 1-2 more mins until wilted. Let cool.
Transfer to a food processor and blend until it looks like sauce, depending on the power of your processor, 1-2 mins.
DONE! Serve with meatballs and zoodles (zucchini noodles), with fish, lovely on chopped livers. Or serve cold as a dip.
