This is a versatile savoury sauce which I make in advance, store it in the fridge in sterilized jars. It is  great to use on meat, vegetables and pasta.

  • 1 Large onion, chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 fat cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1 lb/450g tomatoes, cut into chunks
  • 1 chilli pepper ( optional )
  • Half of lemon ( sliced) 
  • Bunch of fresh parsley
  • Sea salt and ground pepper to taste
  • 8 fl oz/250 ml water

Fry the chopped onion gently in the oil. Put lemon, tomatoes, garlic, chilli, parsley in a food processor and pulse it. Pour into the pan with the onion add water, salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for 20 minutes. Transfer the sauce into airtight jars and keep in the fridge. Use it as required.
