Marinara with Fresh Tomatoes:
|Fresh Tomato Marinara! So Tasty!|
Fresh Tomato Marinara:
1 medium onion, small diced, about 1 1/4 cup
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 1/2 pounds fresh tomatoes = 5 1/2 cups pureed sauce
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
11/2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 1/2 teaspoons dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1. Prepare the tomatoes: wash, cut in half and remove the stem. Chop the tomatoes into manageable pieces and place them into the blender jar. Blend until completely liquefied. Set aside until ready to use.
2. In a medium pot over medium heat, add the olive oil. Allow it to become hot, then add the onions and garlic. Saute for a couple minutes, or until fragrant.
2. Once the onions and garlic have cooked, carefully add the raw tomato puree. Stir to combine with the veggies. Lower the heat, add the herbs and stir again. Allow to simmer for about 20-25 minutes, or until the tomatoes are cooked all the way through and the sauce is flavorful and thick.
3. Use as desired over pasta, or wherever else you would use marinara.
