Quick, Spicy Tomato Sauce Recipe

This is the sort of tomato sauce you can make in less than 5 minutes. I was was making a home made hot dog when I thought some nice spicy tomato sauce was needed. I have made this before and you can be creative, I used a touch of soy sauce once in it too and that can give it a little extra bit. You can also add a drop of lemon juice too. I won't go into details about the exact amounts of each ingredient you should use, just use common sense, a little is better than too much and remember you can always add more.

  • Tomato Juice from a tin of good quality whole pealed organic tomatoes. the juice should be thick and rich
  • A little clove or two of chopped garlic
  • pinch of fresh ground black pepper corns
  • pinch of fresh ground sea or rock salt
  • Paprika
  • Cayenne pepper
  • A little raw sugar

Fry the garlic till its gold (not burned). Add this into a bowl, add all the other ingredients and mince and stir well to squash the garlic into the paste. Let it sit for at least 5 minutes for all the ingredients to combine well. Stir again and serve with your meal or cover and put in the fridge. It should keep in the fridge for about 4-5 days.
