The Technique

Fresh Tomato-Garlic Sauce

A food processor is a valuable piece of equipment necessary in order to make Fresh Tomato-Basil Sauce. It will provide an even consistency throughout the mixture lending a good texture to the final dish. A roux will also need to be prepared in order to aide in the thickening of the sauce. Oil & flour are the beginning components while chicken broth adds flavor & depth. Learn how to make this delicious sauce that may be used for many classic Mexican cuisine specialties.

How To Make Fresh Tomato-Garlic Sauce

Chiles Rellenos is a wonderful way to use a batch of Fresh Tomato-Garlic Sauce. It’s quite simple to make & the robust ingredients complete many meals flawlessly. To keep spattering at bay, rest the lid of the pot to one side while it cooks on the stovetop. Steam will be able to release so the sauce reduces & your range will require less cleaning once complete.
