What do I need?

  • 1 ½ kg truss tomatoes, halved
  • 8 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 bunch basil, divided
  • Pinch of dried oregano
  • 220 mL vegetable stock
  • 400 mL can coconut cream, shaken
  • Cream, to serve (optional)
  • For the caramelised onions
  • ½ tbsp olive oil
  • 2 brown onions, thinly sliced

How do I make it?

  1. Preheat oven to 200C.
  2. Add tomatoes and garlic to a baking tray, drizzle with olive oil and season well. Roast for 45 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile make the caramelised onions by adding olive oil to a saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often until the onions are a deep golden colour, approximately 20 minutes.
  4. Remove tomatoes and garlic from the oven and set aside to cool for 5 minutes. Add them to the bowl of a food processor with caramelised onions and a handful of basil leaves and blitz until smooth.
  5. Pour tomato mixture into a large saucepan over low heat. Add vegetable stock and oregano and stir well to combine. Heat gently for 5 minutes, then pour in the coconut cream and stir to combine. Increase heat and bring to a gentle simmer for 5 minutes, then serve garnished with cream (if desired) and basil leaves.
