Versatile tomato sauce

This tomato sauce is very easy to make and so versatile! I of course use it with pasta or rice for my children, but also as a shakshuka base, with zucchini noodles, with konjac noodles, with roasted vegetables and with baked fish!

You can make it, save it in the fridge for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. It is 100%  6-week plan compliant too!

I hope you enjoy it!


2 cans of chopped tomatoes

100g of green or black olives

1 tablespoon of capers

2 tablespoons or 30g of chopped fresh basil

1 medium onion chopped

4 garlic cloves

3 bay leaves

1 tablespoon of tomato purée 

1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon or 1 cinnamon stick

1/2 teaspoon of good quality salt
