My Grand-Ma Recipe of Tomato Sauce

 My Grand-Ma Recipe of Tomato Sauce 

My Grand-Mother was a star in her kitchen and this is one of the recipes I preferred as you can use it for a lot of dishes: pastas, quenelles, tomates farcies, etc …

Easy to do, she used to cook a lot of it and pour it in bocal for all winter. You can also freeze it in icecube trays.

Enjoy 🙂

Preparation: 10 min

Cooking time: 1 h


1 kg tomato,  1 onion,  2 cloves garlic,  1 celery stalk, Thyme, Pepper,  Salt,  Sugar (to reduce the acidity of the sauce)

Step 1: Put the whole tomatoes in the casserole (no need to peel or seed them)

Step 2: Add the onion, garlic, salt and pepper and a glass of water so that the tomatoes do not attach at the beginning of cooking.

Step 3: Cover and simmer for about an hour. Blend everything in the blender for 2 minutes and pass the juice to the vegetable mill (fine sieve) or strainer. The seeds and skins will stay there and you will have less work and waste.

Step 4: Correct the acidity of the sauce according to your taste with sugar.  

Et voilà !
