Make your own tomato sauce

Tomato sauce ingredients

Red wine, onion, chopped tomatoes, garlic, tomato puree, stock + water to dilute, seasoning, corn flour if sauce needs thickening and olive oil for frying

I know it is easy to buy a jar of tomato sauce while you do your weekly food shopping but it is actually easier…. and so much cheaper …. to make your own…. if you have a freezer that is!

It does not take long to chop the ingredients. Have you read my tips on how to cut vegetable efficiently? Once cooked and cooled, you might want to quickly zap your sauce with a blender then divide and place in containers to suit the space in your freezer.

Tip: to defrost your sauce quickly, stand your plastic bag in hot water.

Uses: Topping for pizza, sauce for pasta, meatballs, spice it up for curry sauces, etc.. the list is endless.
