  • 1 onion
  • 50g spinach
  • 20g tomatoes of your choice
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 50g tomato puree
  • 1 vegetable stock cube
  • 100ml water
  • 400g tin tomatoes
  • 1 tsp sweetner or honey (optional)


  • STEP 1
    Finely chop the onion, spinach and garlic. Add to a pan. Instead of using oil, to help soften the onion add a spoon of water. Cook for 5 mins until soft.
  • STEP 2
    Add the fresh tomatoes (chopped), the tomato puree, the water, stock cube and the tinned tomatoes. Add sweetener/honey if you have chosen to. Mix until all combined. Season with salt and pepper.
  • STEP 3
    Leave to simmer (with the lid on ajar), for 10 mins. At this point, if you want to make it a smooth sauce, pour into a food processor and blitz until smooth.
