A creamy tomato sauce flavoured with vodka.
Our cousins José and François gave me this recipe.
|1 tbsp||olive oil||15 mL|
|1/2||onions, finely chopped||100 g|
|1 clove||garlic, pressed or minced|
|1 cup||strained tomatoes||250 mL|
|1/4 cup||dairy blend 5%||65 mL|
|1/4 cup||vodka, or to taste||65 mL|
|1 pinch||salt [optional]||0.1 g|
|ground pepper to taste [optional]|
- Heat the oil in saucepan over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and minced or pressed garlic, then sauté 5 min until translucent. Add the strained tomatoes, salt, and pepper. Cook 15 min over medium-low heat, with occasional stirring.
- Remove the pan from the heat, then stir in the dairy blend and vodka. Mix well then purée in a blender. More or less vodka may be added depending on personal preference.
This sauce can be stored up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator; up to 3 months in the freezer.
