Method

  • Chop all the vegetables (doesn't have to be really small) and fry for about 5-10 mins in olive oil until beginning to soften.
  • Add the tinned tomatoes and fry for another couple of mins then add the passata and herbs.Cover and simmer for at least half an hour - more if possible. Stir occasionally.
  • When the veg if softened, especially the carrots take off the heat and blend ( I use a stick mixer as I haven't got anything else but probably a food processor is better) until smooth.
