Classic tomato sauce with onion, garlic and basil

What we will need:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 8 pcs medium tomato (or 2 cans peeled tomatoes)
  • salt, ground black pepper, sugar to taste
  • 1 handful fresh basil or oregano

How we will proceed:

  • First, peel the tomatoes: cut each one crosswise and place them in boiling water for about 2 minutes.
  • Then simply remove the skin and cut the tomatoes into larger cubes and set them aside in a bowl.
  • Heat the oil over a medium heat and add the onion and garlic. Fry for about 3 minutes.
  • When the onions have softened, add the tomatoes and cook over a low heat until they start to break down – 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Before the end of cooking, season the sauce with salt and pepper and add a teaspoon or two of sugar if necessary to balance the acidity of the tomatoes.
  • Remove the sauce from the heat and stir in the chopped basil or oregano leaves.
  • The sauce can be made in bulk during tomato season and bottled or frozen for the winter months.

Good taste!
