Jamie Oliver’s Tomato Sauce


Tomato sauce is incredibly versatile! You can use it as a base for pasta sauces, on pizza, on bruschetta. Just allow your imagination to go wild! This recipe is a great base recipe. You can twist it up however you like!

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

2 -3  garlic cloves, finely chopped

1 bunch basil stalks or a tsp dried oregano

1 whole red chili (pierced once with a knife to prevent from bursting during cooking)

2 cans of whole peeled plum tomatoes

Sea Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 tsp red wine vinegar

– Heat the olive oil in a skillet. Fry the chopped garlic until lightly golden. Add the basil stalks or oregano and the chili. Add the tomatoes. Keep the tomatoes whole until right at the end as the seeds cab be bitter and you want the sauce as sweet as possible. Season with salt and pepper and gently simmer for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, remove the chili and discard.

– Mash the tomatoes right at the end of the cooking process with a fork to puree. Taste and adjust seasoning and add the red wine vinegar. You can now serve this sauce in so many ways!
