  • About


  • fresh tomatoes ½ kg
  • salt
  • garlic 4-5 cloves, peeled
  • generous glug of olive oil


  • Chop the tomatoes on a board, and sprinkle them with a little salt. Toss the chopped garlic into a frying pan covered with a layer of hot oil. Tilt the board covered in tomatoes to let any water run off into the sink, or a bowl, and sweep them into the pan as the garlic softens, but before it has coloured.
  • Stir fry the tomatoes for a moment longer, and that’s your sauce. You can add more olive oil.
