“This is the first summer I’ve purchased 20lbs of tomatoes”

This is a summer of firsts for me. It’s the first summer I’ve owned a Vita-Mix, the first summer I’ve participated in a CSA, the first summer I’ve tried to can and store foods, and the first summer I’ve ever purchased 20 pounds of tomatoes. We had big plans for these tomatoes, but that’s a story for another post. Our first night with a 20 pound behemoth on our kitchen counter we selected 10 tomatoes to make some grilled tomato sauce.

Grilled roma tomato sauce is very easy to make; slice the tomatoes in half, drizzle with olive oil and sea salt, and grill for a few minutes on each side.

Grill 3 cloves of garlic, 1/2 onion, and 1/2 green pepper until they are as beautifully grilled as the tomatoes.

This all goes into the Vita-Mix, goes up to speed 10, then high, transfer to a sauce pan for a few minutes. Add as much sea salt and pepper as you like.

Serve with pasta, bread, pizza, or anything you enjoy with sauce.
