Suma Tomato Sauce with a Kick

Ingredients

  1. 1 onion finely chopped
  2. 2 tablespoons Suma Extra Virgin Organic Olive Oil (GT085)
  3. 1 red pepper chopped
  4. 1 tin Suma Organic Chopped Tomatoes (LJ080)
  5. 1 small jar Suma Sun Dried Tomatoes in Olive Oil & Thyme (LJ258)
  6. 1 tablespoon Suma Tomato Puree (LJ088)
  7. 1 tablespoon Suma Oak Aged Balsamic Vinegar (KJ654)
  8. 1/2 teaspoon fair trade sugar

Method:

  1. Fry the onion in the olive oil until translucent.  Meanwhile drain the tomatoes and chop them finely. Save the oil. Add the red pepper to the onion and cook for a further 10 minutes until the pepper is soft.
  2. Add the tin of tomatoes, sun dried tomatoes and tomato puree and cook over a very low heat for 30 minutes.
  3. Remove from the heat, add the balsamic vinegar and sugar.  Using a hand blender blend the sauce until fairly smooth.
  4. This is great on pasta topped with some vegetarian Parmesan and a salad.  The oil from the tomatoes can be served with another small dish of Suma balsamic vinegar and chunks of bread to dip.
  5. This simple sauce goes down a storm in the Suma canteen – after some initial reservations.
