Homemade tomato basil sauce

Homemade tomato basil sauce


Be the first to make this!

About this recipe: I find that shop-bought tomato sauce spoils many recipes - too salty, too sweet or just too concentrated. To make it yourself only takes a few minutes, especially since, with this recipe, you don't peel the tomatoes!


Makes: 1 small jar

  • 3 or 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 6 ripe tomatoes, quartered
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 15 basil leaves
  • salt and ground black pepper

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Place the olive oil, tomatoes, garlic and basil in a pan. Cover, and heat over medium low heat, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes break down and are very soft, about 20 minutes.
  2. Blend with an immersion blender, or in a food processor, until smooth. Use immediately, or allow to cool; then freeze in small recloseable bags for later use.
