Ingredients

  • 2 medium onions, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp sunflower oil
  • 2kg Italian tomatoes, peeled and sliced in half
  • Demerara sugar
  • 500g rosa tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh oreganum, finely chopped
  • vinegar and sugar to taste
  • Parmesan cheese, grated
  • fresh thyme

Instructions

  1. Sauté the onions in the oil in a large pot.
  2. Place the Italian tomatoes, cut side up, on an oiled baking sheet and sprinkle with Demerara sugar. Bake under a hot grill for 4 to 5 minutes, allowing the tomatoes to caramelise slightly.
  3. Pour into the pot with the onions. Add the rosa tomatoes. Bring to the boil, then turn the heat down slightly to a fast simmer. Allow liquid to boil away until the mixture is thick and flavourful (about 30 minutes). Don’t forget to stir often to stop the bottom burning. Add the oreganum and adjust the flavour with a little vinegar or sugar.
  4. Pulse in a food processor but do not overblend.
  5. Serve piping hot with grated Parmesan and a sprig of thyme.
