Easy Blender Tomato Sauce

This is a super easy tomato sauce that uses fresh summer ingredients. Blend tomatoes, herbs, and other veggies to make a smooth sauce that can be eaten right out of the blender (some of the high power blenders like the Blendtec and Vitamix will blend sauces until they are slightly warmed). If you have time, simmer the sauce and the flavors and color will get even more rich. The more the sauce is simmered the better it gets. If you want chunky sauce, then chop some veggies separately and add to blended sauce when it’s simmering.

INGREDIENTS

2 pounds tomatoes, cut in half with many of the seeds “punched” out

1 onion, rough chop

3-4 cloves garlic

1 carrot chopped or 5 baby carrots

half a zucchini, rough chop

1- 2 handfuls of herbs (rosemary, oregano, thyme, basil)

1-2 tablespoons of olive oil salt and pepper to taste

1 tsp. sugar (optional) small pinch of crushed red pepper (optional)

DIRECTIONS

Place tomatoes in blender and puree about 1 minute (on Blendtec use the “sauce” setting). Place other ingredients in and blend again until smooth. Serve immediately, or for cooked sauce, simmer on “low” in a pot with lid on for 1-2 hours. Season with salt and pepper as needed
