Simple Tomato Sauce | Barry Lewis


Hey folks, it’s Barry here from My Virgin
Kitchen, welcome to Family Food Tube today’s recipe is fresh and healthy and so simple
it is just it can make dozens of dishes it is a perfect make-ahead healthy family solution and
trust me if I can make it, I’m self-taught, you definitely can we’re making a really simple
tomato sauce today with basil and garlic and the cool thing is it can be made in batches
and then stored in your freezer until you need it then with a few tweaks you can make
like a variety of dishes like hundreds it is so good you can toss it through cooked
pasta to use as the main sauce or perhaps even serve it alongside with cooked some meatballs
oh my gosh that looks good or even make it your new go-to pizza topping, other options
include a homemade salad dressing or a salsa the world really is your oyster or tomato
in this case so hopefully you wanna give this a go you’re gonna need the following ingredients
hit pause on the video now our recipe is actually up on the jamieoliver.com website so you can
check it out on there too lets get cracking we start off by adding our pan onto our hob
on a low flame and chucking in our olive oil now earlier I chopped up some garlic cloves
we;re just gonna push those straight in to our pan as soon as they start to begin to
colour what we’ll do is add in some fresh basil again this was a bunch that I had earlier
and just tore it off in to little pieces but add that in there and also our plum tomatoes
get that all in there looking amazing whilst that was warming through I was using my spatula
to break down those plum tomatoes if you’re using a wooden spoon or even a potato masher
do that just to squish up those plum tomatoes a little bit give it a seasoning of salt and
pepper and just keep until it reaches a simmer looking amazing so yep as soon as it’s come
to the boil remove the pan from the heat and we’re gonna strain that sauce through a sieve
in to a large mixing bowl now you can use your spatula to push any large bits of tomato
through and just get it all on there and make sure you scrape the bottom of the sieve to
get off any little chunks of tomato I actually did this in batches because I found that it
sort of spilled over if you did too much so do it a little bit at a time until you’re
left with a really lovely tomato sauce discard any leftover bits of basil and garlic then
simply pour the sauce back in to the pan, we’re gonna bring that up to a boil and then
let it simmer away for a good five minutes to help concentrate the flavours it should
be ready when it’s the perfect consistency for spreading on a pizza and if you’re not
using it straight away you can actually store it in a jar in your fridge or what Idid was
actually put it in some freezer bags put it in there let it cool to room temperature and
then stick it in your freezer until you need it now that you’ve mastered this really simple
tomato sauce why not take it up a notch Jamie has got this amazing barbecued baked bean
recipe, Michela has got this fantastic one pot hunters chicken and my good friend KerryAnn has got the tomato sauce as the base of her tuna pasta bake video amazing so basically once you’ve mastered this really
easy and tasty tomato sauce you are set up in the kitchen and the kids absolutely loved
