I like sauces and spreads but so many can contain a lot of sugar and salt. If you read the rest of my recipes you’ll see I like sweets so I need a few things like this to keep me better balanced.
This can be used as a cold spread on a sandwich, or use it hot as a sauce poured over cooked chicken.
- 28 oz. can of plum tomatoes (compare brands to get some with no or low salt)
- 2 diced red peppers
- 1/2 tsp. minced garlic
- 1/4 tsp. hot red pepper flakes or Frank’s Red Hot Sauce
- 1/4 tsp. dried thyme
Place tomatoes with juices in a saucepan. Add remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes uncovered until very thick. Stir often to prevent sticking. Puree in a blender or with hand mixer, taste and adjust seasonings. Makes about 1 1/2 cups.
