Question NEED a tomato sauce recipe made from fresh tomatoes!

We have a bunch of fresh tomatoes and need to use them tonight. I want to make a sauce from them but haven't done that before. I am out of olive oil, but I have sunflower oil and coconut oil. We don't use sugar ( we use stevia)

Anyone have a good recipe??

Re: NEED a tomato sauce recipe made from fresh tomatoes!

To be honest, I mostly make things up as I go along.... but I've been using tom's like crazy here since I bought 20 lbs the other day. For a tom sauce (over spaghetti or something), I'd just cut some toms & toss in the blender/food processor (that does liquids) & add some misc things like garlic, onion, pepper, etc (most veggies would do well in the sauce). Then I'd transfer it to the stove in a pot & cook it down, add some other things like oregano, salt, pepper, basil maybe. And I'd also add more onions, peppers, etc but chopped up to make a chunky sauce. Just cook it down to the consistency that you prefer or even add something to help thicken it like I use xanthum gum, but I'm sure you could use a flour or something. GL HTH

PS Ohhh and mushrooms! I love them in my sauces.

We boil them for a little while to get the skin off easier. Then we mash in a crock pot and add italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, TINY pinch of salt, TINY pinch of sugar (stevia ) garlic lots of garlic Any veggeis you might want we like zukini, squash and a ton of mushrooms. Then we let it cook for the day and freeze in zip lock containers or freezer bags.

ETA: depending on how you like your sauce you can blend it more we like ours thicker so we mash it but dont blend it where my mom uses an immersion blender to get hers thin with no chucks.
