This recipe won’t be new to some of you, as it’s very similar to that in my post I love condiments – 4 recipes you need in your life. I’ve decided to re-release it as a gentle reminder – no one needs sugar-packed, store-bought tomato sauce. Making your own condiments really is this easy. You just have to get started to see. When it comes to kitchen DIY, the key is to start simple, build on what you learn and enjoy the process. As I always say, Rome wasn’t built in a day.
- 1 teaspoon cold-pressed extra virgin coconut oil
- 1 garlic clove, finely chopped or crushed
- 400g can tomatoes (100% tomatoes)*
- 1 sachet tomato paste (salt reduced)
- ½ cup apple cider vinegar**
- ¼ tablespoon sea salt
- 1 tablespoon rice malt syrup
- In a large pan, brown garlic in coconut oil over a medium heat.
- Add all other ingredients and bring to the boil.
- Reduce the heat and simmer until thick.
- Cool and store in the fridge. Due to the ACV, I expect it will last three weeks. I like to re-use old rice malt syrup jars or mason jars to store mine. Mason jars can be purchased online with a simple Google search.
