Sugar Free Tomato Sauce



4 jar(s)

Tomato sauce

  • 1 sprig flat leaf parsley
  • 10 lg fresh basil leaves
  • 1 lg brown onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Granny Smith Apple
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp white pepper
  • 1 tsp allspice
  • 1 Tbsp TM veggie stock concentrate
  • 150ml - 250ml water

Tomato prep

  • 1-2 sprigs Thyme
  • olive oil
  • ground rock salt
  • 1kg vine ripened tomatoes

Recipe's preparation

    Tomato prep
  1. If using cherry tomatoes, slice in half and place on an oven tray face up (for larger tomatoes wedge slice them to approx size of half a cherry tomato)

  2. drizzle oil over the tomatoes, sprinkle with salt, and scatter thyme leaves roughly evenly.

  3. roast in a medium oven for approximately 1 hour

  4. Tomato sauce
  5. place onion, apple and garlic in the bowl and chop for 5 seconds / speed 6

  6. scrape down sides of bowl and add roasted tomatoes. then chop on speed 6 / 4 sec

  7. add all remaining ingredients and cook 100°c / speed 2 / 30 min (or until sufficently reduced

  8. puree the mixture for 30 sec / speed 9

  9. pour into hot sterilized bottles and store.


Accessories you need



I find the cherry tomatoes work best. roasting the tomatoes first is worth the effort, the flavour is intensified and mind blowing.

If you do want some more sweetness without the fructose, add a 1/2 tsp stevia powder or 10 - 15 fresh stevia leaves in step 6.

If you want a faster recipe, leave out the tomato prep and add the tomatoes, thyme and tsp of salt in step 6, andh chop 5 sec / speed 5, then continue on as described. It will work fine, but will result in a runnier sauce not as packed with flavour.

Adjust water as required for desired consistancy in the last 5 min of the cooking process.

    Delicious! I made a few changes.. Left out the allspice, added a heaped tspn of dried thai chilli (I like hot!), and I roasted the onion (red one for sweetness) and the garlic (extra clove) with the tomatoes.. Yummo!

    What a very nice and  dignified response to what I consider a very rude comment by that person. You can clearly see by the pic and by the ingredients that it is a pasta sauce! I am just in the process of making your recipe now

  • Hi luv2create. As you can see

    Hi luv2create. As you can see by the picture, it is quite a thick sauce (we use it in pasta). If you want it like a pouring sauce (like ketchup) all you need is to add a bit more water. One of the best things about Thermomix is the total freedom of tayloring recipes to your own specific tastes. If you don't like spices, you can leave out the garlic and allspice, or you play around with adding other spices (eg pepper). Also the amount of water in the tomatoes will effect how thick the end result is tmrc_emoticons.)
