Quick Tomato Sauce

Quick Tomato Sauce

For this recipe I use rustic passata which is more chunky than regular passata. Normal passata is too smooth and will make the sauce too slimy, so if you can’t find the rustic variety then pulse a tin of tomatoes in a food processor to form a chunky sauce.

The basic recipe is to fry garlic, fresh basil and rustic passata in a little oil then season to taste. However you can add in other ingredients that require minimal cooking such as spinach, mushrooms and / or sundried tomatoes.

Serve with pasta or use as a sauce to go with vegan burgers.
