I love tomato sauce. Most tomato sauces are simple, wholesome and delicious. Tomatoes are one of the few fruits/veggies that retain most of their vitamins and goodness through the canning process. That being said it is still delicious and a treat to occasionally make tomato sauce from scratch. This recipe was inspired by the Chunky Tomato Sauce recipe in Nourishing Traditions.
This recipe makes a double batch which will last two meals in our house. I would say it makes about 6-7 servings.
Tomatoes (I used 7)
Garlic (I used 3 large cloves)
Sea Salt 1 tsp
Pepper 3/4 tsp
4tbl balsamic vinegar
2tsp dried basil
optional, onion or other veggies
Throw in everything else and simmer for as long as you like. I went about 30-40 minutes.
The sauce takes a darker color from the balsamic vinegar.
You can serve as is or thin the mixture out a bit. I did this with my immersion blender.
Have a wonderful nourishing start to the week!
