Tomato Purée

  • 900 g very ripe tomatoes
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • a good pinch of salt and a few twists of black pepper


Cut the tomatoes into quarters; put into a stainless steel saucepan with the onion, sugar, salt and freshly ground pepper. Cook on a gentle heat until the tomatoes are soft (no water is needed). Put through the fine blade of the mouli-legume or a nylon sieve. Allow to get cold, then refrigerate or freeze.
