- 500 g canned tomatoes (San Marzano if possible) about 2 cans
- pinch of baking soda
- fine sea salt to taste
Slice in half your canned tomatoes lengthwise. Discard their inner juices and seeds by using a teaspoon.
Transfer the tomatoes into a blender, and add in any pulp left in the can, removing any seeds. Blend for a few seconds, until you have a smooth tomato pulp.
Add a pinch of baking soda and mix. If the sauce is still too acidic, just add another pinch of baking soda. Then season with a generous pinch of fine sea salt and your sauce is ready.
Following step two, add a swirl of extra-virgin olive oil, a generous pinch of oregano, a garlic clove, and a pinch of freshly-cracked black pepper.
Let the ingredients marinate for about 30 minutes and, just before use, remove the garlic.
Once ready, use it up straight away, and store the leftover sauce in an airtight jar, in the fridge for up to 2 days. Or freeze in freezer-friendly containers for up to 6 weeks.
