Recipe for a homemade Tomato and Vegetable Sauce packed full of healthy ingredients – add over pizza or pasta
8 large ripe tomatoes blanched and roughly chopped
250 gr rosa tomatoes or exotic heirloom tomato mix
1 large celery stalks and tops chopped roughly
2 large brown onions peeled and chopped
150 gr zucchini roughly chopped
4 large carrots peeled and roughly chopped
30 ml balsamic vinegar
2 bird eye chili chopped
4 cloves garlic
salt and black pepper to season
15 ml olive oil
handful fresh parsley
handful fresh basil
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Place all the ingredients (roughly chopped) into a large oven-safe baking tray.
Drizzle with olive oil and seasoning. Roast for 40 minutes on 180 degrees Celsius or until the tomatoes have blistered and are soft.
Remove the tray from the oven and allow to cool slightly before transferring it to your blender.
Once the sauce is in the blender, add your fresh herbs and pulse until smooth and thick. Don’t add any more water. Season to taste and place in an airtight jar. Keep for up to two weeks in the fridge.
