You need to roast the tomatoes - halve the tomatoes and coat the bottom of a roasting tin (just big enough to fit all the halves in, cut side down) in olive oil


Mix in the finely chopped garlic, salt, pepper and sugar


Line up the tomatoes, cut sides down, and roast them for 20 mins at 190 until the skins come away


Meanwhile, finely slice the onion, heat 3-4 tbsp oil in a large saucepan and cook the onions over a medium heat


Add the chilli flakes and cumin and cook until softened


Add the tin of tomatoes and 600ml of water


Bring to a simmer and bubble for 10 minutes


In the meantime, peel the skins off the roasted tomatoes, discard the skins and pour the tomatoes, oil and garlic into the saucepan


Cook for another 15 mins and then blend until smooth


Check the seasoning and serve!
