{home made tomato sauce}

Here is the much promised recipe for tomato sauce! It is sooo good! I suggest you all try it. I got the recipe from this site but instead of using fresh tomatoes i used a can.


6-8 cloves organic garlic, thinly sliced
½ chopped white onion (optional)
2 teaspoons organic dried oregano
Handful fresh organic basil, coarsely chopped
2 teaspoons sea salt
6-7 large Organic Roma tomatoes or a can of tomatoes
¼ cup, 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
Fresh ground pepper to taste



1. If using tomatoes, boil water, place tomatoes in until the skin begins to peel and then move to ice water and peel the skins. Then transfer them to a food processor or blender to break up into smaller pieces.

If using a can of tomatoes, do whatever needed to get the tomato pieces into small chunks or smooth if thats how you like it.

2. In a large pan, heat oil a bit, then add onion, garlic and oregano. Then add in the tomatoes and cook for 30 min to an hour. You can also add in a few basil leaves to the sauce. Its so yummy.


This recipe makes enough for 6-8 people, personally i have had about 6 meals out of it and am not halfway done with it so i guess it depends on the person! Hope you all enjoy this. I have started trying to make things from scratch a lot more now because i think it costs less, tastes better and is better for me. Also, I have started going to Atwater Market, which is the most wonderful outdoor market. If you are ever in the Montreal area, it is definitely somewhere to check out.

My room mate and I bought some fresh herbs. Having greenery in the apartment automatically makes it more home like and fresh. Plus it is really nice for cooking to just go over a pick a few leaves. The plants were only 10 dollars for all four, you can't tell me you would pass up that deal.

  1. I like the sound of that. And I won't judge because you used tinned ingredients rather than all fresh. ︶︹︶
