Sumac and Tomato Sauce

This recipe is so simple - in just three ingredients and one pan, you have a delicious sauce, perfect for pastas or to serve with whatever else you might have going on on your plate! Cherry tomatoes are so wonderfully sweet, and when cooked they caramalise a little. The sumac keeps everything tasting fresh and light so this sauce is perfect with anything with a little spice, goes well with lemon and makes a great alternative to a traditional pasta sauce.

what you’ll need

(serves 2)

  • 300g of cherry tomatoes

  • 1 teaspoon of tamari

  • 1 teaspoon of sumac

what to do

Half the cherry tomatoes and place them in a small, non-stick saucepan with the tamari and sumac, stirring well to mix everything in.

Cover with a lid and place over a low heat for about 10 minutes. Use a wooden spoon to stir every few minutes to prevent sticking, and as the tomatoes soften, squash them slightly to create a chunky sauce.

Once the tomatoes has softened completely it is ready to serve.
