How to Make Rich Tomato Sauce at Home

Making tomato sauce is a great way to use up a glut of tomatoes that you might have in the backyard if you are growing them, or if you can pick them up cheap when they are in season. Knowing exactly what is in your sauce is a good way to cut down on sugar, as commercially bought tomato sauces are usually crammed with the bad white stuff.

There are so many versions on the internet but this Rich Tomato Sauce recipe is the best we’ve tried so far. It’s soo flavourful and comforting!


  1. In a heavy based saucepan heat the olive oil.

  2. Add onion and garlic. Cook until onion is lightly golden.

  3. Add the vinegar and tomatoes and simmer uncovered for 25 minutes stirring occasionally.

  4. Add the tomato paste and the herbs and simmer a further 15 minutes to reduce.

Recipe Hints and Tips:

  • Rich Tomato Sauce is suitable to freeze for up to six months.
