Roasted Tomato Sauce

  • Fresh, Ripe Tomatoes
  • Fresh Garlic
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Sea Salt
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • Optional: Oregano, Basil
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Rinse tomatoes and cut them into quarters, laying them in a single layer into a roasting pan. Mince or press garlic, to taste, and add to tomatoes. Douse with a generous splash of oil. Sprinkle with balsamic vinegar, sprinkle liberally with sea salt and black pepper, and add optional oregano, to taste. Toss everything together with your hands, coating tomatoes with the oil. Place in the oven and cook for about one hour or until all tomatoes have softened and browned slightly. Remove from oven, cool slightly, and place tomatoes with juices into a food processor. Blend until smooth and creamy. Season with sea salt, pepper, and optional fresh basil, to taste. Serve or freeze for later use.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
