Tomato Peri Peri Sauce

Making homemade tomato sauce is one of those things I love to make purely because it brings me joy. The smell of that sauce cooking in the slow cooker is one of the best smells in the world.

I try really hard to avoid buying too many processed foods that have a million different ingredients in. Making sauces is still something I am playing around with but this tomato peri peri sauce will add a kick to just about anything you make. It makes for a great dipping sauce or you can add a little bit to your bolognaise or stew. It would also make a great marinade for chops or kebabs.

You could even double this recipe up and freeze what you don’t need. I freeze my sauces in silicone cupcake trays, it makes it easy to pop out when I need it.
