Roasted Tomato, Garlic, Chilli & Basil Sauce
« on: January 31, 2016, 09:43:22 am »
This recipe was in my latest edition of Weight Watchers magazine but I made it with minor changes including replacing the  Jalapenos with long red chillis.  It makes 2 cups of sauce and serves 4

1 kg tomatoes - I used a mixture of romas & black Russian
1/2 head garlic
3 tbspn balsamic vinegar
1 large red onion, cut into thick wedges
1 long red chilli, cut in half and deseeded
1 cup basil leaves

Preheat oven to 170 degrees fan forced.  Line a large oven tray with baking paper.

Cut the tomatoes in halves (or in the case of very large tomatoes, cut into 3 thick slices) and place onto the lined tray. Sprinkle the balsamic vinegar over them.

Wrap the garlic in alfoil and place that on the tray as well.

Place the onion and chilli pieces in and around the tomato pieces.

Spray with oil and season with S & P.   Bake for 1 hour, checking occasional to make sure the onion and chilli are not browning too much.  If they are, remove them from the tray and finish cooking the tomatoes for the full time. Allow everything to cool slightly. 

Squeeze the garlic from the skin, place in the TMX bowl along with the other ingredients, including the fresh basil leaves. Make sure the leaves are under the surface to ensure even chopping.

Select closed lid, then press the turbo button twice for about 1 second each time.  You don't want a puree, you just need everything to be chopped as per the photo. Check after the first press.

Serve over pasta, as a pizza base or anything that a passata type sauce is used.  It is rich and delicious and a little goes a long way.  I'll be freezing my leftovers in 1/2 cup portions.

It certainly does. I'll have to see if I can get some more cheap tomatoes.

Thanks Marina & cookie, I was really happy with it. I don't follow a weight watchers diet but they seem to have some nice recipes in their magazines.

That sounds really nice Judy, we have planted tomatoes and basil in our new veggie garden and getting a good yield..
It would be nice to use it up this way :)
