Author Notes: A delicate thyme and tomato sauce which is perfect with pasta, or on pizza as well as a sauce for steamed veggies. Add a few fresh thyme leaves at the last moment to add the "shine" to this tomato sauce. Annalisa @ Joy of Yum

  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 4 - 5 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • Splash of red wine (optional)
  • Several sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 2 x 800 grams organic canned tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • Salt and pepper
  • A few fresh thyme leaves for the final moment!
  1. Heat a large frying pan and add the onions. Stir now and again to prevent burning but allow the onions to soften. Add the garlic and keep everything moving in the pan for a few minutes. Add leaves from the thyme sprigs and a splash of red wine.
  2. Tip the tomatoes into the pan and bring to a gentle simmer for about 5 minutes. Mash and squash the tomatoes as best you can.
  3. Allow to cool a little and then place in the goblet of a blender and whizz until smooth.
