  • (start with ½ teaspoon and taste then add up to your tolerance)
  • 1 small pot of Crème Fraîche (leave out if you want the vegan option)

Instructions – Turn oven onto 200° C

  1. Cut up the tomatoes into ¼’s

  4. Slice up the onions and garlic
  5. Put a slug of olive oil into a large saucepan big enough to take the tomatoes when they are cooked

  8. Cook for further 2 mins
  9. Blizt in blender or with hand blender until smooth

splashChef’s Tip – Buy organic tomatoes and never keep them in the fridge otherwise the taste vanishes – tomatoes like it warm 🙂
