To make basic vegetarian tomato pasta sauce doesn’t require a lot of ingredients, you just need the time to make it. Here’s a recipe that still works for me. If you wish, you can add more herbs to the sauce for added flavour.
1 medium (approx 154g) Onion (chopped)
7 cloves (approx 26g) Garlic (chopped)
1 Green Chilli
½ tsp Black pepper
Bunch of fresh dill, roughly chopped
1 tsp Salt
1½ tbsp Olive oil
Cooking time: 50 minutes (Approx)
Blanch the tomatoes (either by boiling or steaming for 10 – 15 minutes), remove the skin and place the blanched tomatoes in a bowl.
Heat the oil in a pan, add the onion and sauté for a few minutes. Add the garlic and cook until slightly golden brown. Add the dill and chilli, stir for 1 minute.
Now add the blanched tomatoes and add seasonings (black pepper and salt). Stir and slightly crush the tomatoes, place the lid and bring to boil.
