If you have a glut of tomatoes at the moment, you could try this roasted tomato base:
Cut tomatoes in half and put face up, next to eachother in a shallow roasting dish. Add a few sliced onions and cloves of garlic. Pour over olive oil and season with salt and black pepper.
Roast in the oven at 190 degrees until the juice runs out. Slightly charred is good too. Sieve to get rid of seeds. You can reduce this sauce by boiling it for a few minutes.
- use as pizza base
- Simple pasta sauce - add shredded basil, mix and serve with parmesan
- Tomatoe soup- add equal quantity of stock to tomatoe puree, and 3 tablespoons of cooked rice, some cream if you want to, whizz together and voila, another tomatoe soup.
I freeze all of the above for use during the winter.
