Roasted Heirloom Tomato Sauce


Roasted Heirloom Tomato Sauce

Fresh and bursting with summer flavor, you can make this super simple Roasted Heirloom Tomato Sauce in the oven, air-fryer, or in a foil packet on the grill!

Yield: About 3 cups 

4 medium-large heirloom tomatoes 
4 teaspoons minced garlic 
2 teaspoons dried basil 
1 teaspoon dried oregano 
4 tablespoons olive oil 
Salt and pepper, to taste 

Preheat oven to 400F. Have ready a glass baking dish. 

Cut a hole in the top of each tomato, where the stem is. Into each hole place 1 teaspoon minced garlic, 1/2 teaspoon basil, 1/4 teaspoon oregano, 1 tablespoon olive oil, salt and pepper. 

Bake for 45 minutes.* Until tomato skins are wrinkly and the garlic is very fragrant. Remove from oven. 

Using an immersion blender, or carefully transfer to a tabletop blender, blend to desired consistency. Serve on pasta, use as pizza sauce, or simply enjoy dipping in a nice crusty piece of bread 

*If using an air-fryer you will have to adjust the time, possibly 20 minutes at 400F, depending on your specific machine. For the grill, you will want to put your tomatoes in a foil packet/envelope to keep all those juices that are essential to making this sauce.
