Easy tomato sauce (for rice, pasta, over meat and veg, etc)


> 2 Cans of chopped tomatoes (our are usually about 400g)
> 3+ cloves of garlic (you like garlic? add more.)
> 1 large brown onion (or 2 small ones etc. As usual add more or less depending on preference)
> Dried oregano
> Dried thyme
> 1 tsp of sugar (add more or less depending on preference)
> Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Add a thin layer of olive oil to the bottom of a medium-high saucepan and add onion. As onion begins to become translucent and soft add the garlic and cook until the garlic begins to lightly colour.
  2. Add oregano and thyme – 1tsp is a good starting point but again your preference. Stir.
  3. Add cans of tomato (we blend ours to make it a nice smooth consistency).
  4. Bring the heat up so the sauce begins to simmer and reduce to a low heat.
  5. Taste. Add salt, pepper and your sugar. Taste again. Adjust herbs and seasonings till you get a taste you’re happy with.
  6. Allow mixture to simmer for 20-30 minutes, topping up with water if it begins to get too thick or dry out.
  7. Enjoy!!

Super easy and again very flexible. Do what you want with this.
