Roasted Tomato & Cumin


You need: an onion, 1/2 tsp cumin seeds, 3/4 tsp chilli flakes, a tin of toms, 3 cloves of garlic, salt, pepper, 1/2 tsp sugar and a good lug of olive oil And 6 medium sized tomatoes


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!
