  • 2 ½ cups oven roasted tomatoes
  • 1 head oven roasted garlic
  • 1 teaspoon fresh oregano or thyme or basil
  • ½ teaspoon brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt


  • Pl;ace all ingredients in a food processor.
  • Puree until a smooth consistency,
  • Taste and add additional brown sugar and salt if needed (see notes)


  • The brown sugar helps cut the acidity of the tomatoes. Add up to an additional 1/2 teaspoon if needed.
  • Add a pinch more salt if needed.
  • Use fresh oregano, thyme or basil in this recipe. You may use a combination of the herbs as well.
  • If using dried herbs, just add a pinch. Dried herbs are much stronger than fresh.
  • You do not need to peel the oven roasted tomatoes prior to using.
