      tomato sauce

      Tomato sauce can refer to many different sauces made primarily from tomatoes. Usually served as part of a dish rather than a condiment, can be used in vegetables and meat. They are perhaps best known as bases for Mexican salsas or sauces for pasta dishes. Tomatoes have a rich flavor, high water content, soft flesh. All of these qualities make them ideal for the simple and appealing sauce in cooking.

      In countries such as the United Kingdom, India, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa, ‘Tomato sauce’ is compared to a condiment similar to ketchup. 

      The tomato sauce consists of chopped tomatoes cooked down (possibly with olive oil) and simmered until it loses its raw flavor. Mostly seasoned with salt and herbs as preference. Optionally, tomato skins can be scalded and peeled according to the texture (for thicker pelati paste varieties). Tomato seeds can also be removed for aesthetic purposes, leaving just the tomato flesh and pulp.

      Meanwhile, like tomato puree or tomato paste, tomato sauce can be one of the ingredients in dishes, like a tomato-based soup. The sauce is thinner than the puree or the paste (which is the thickest), and it may have additional flavors.

      Water or a more flavorful liquid, such as stock or wine, is sometimes added to keep it from drying out too much. Onion and garlic are some of the most sweated or sautéed before adding the tomato or puréed together with tomatoes and then cooked together. Other seasonings typically include dried mild chili peppers (such as guajillo chili or pasilla chili), epazote, basil, oregano, parsley, and black pepper. Ground or chopped meat is also common.

      In a large saucepan, cook tomatoes and basil over medium-low heat until tomatoes are soft. Meanwhile, in a medium skillet, saute onion and garlic in olive oil until onions are translucent.


      Add onion mixture to tomato mixture and add salt and pepper. Let simmer on low heat for 2 hours or until thick. You can also store them in a jar.
