Tomato sauce is a pantry staple, but since it's hard to buy one that doesn't contain any junk ingredients, I like to make a batch of my own so I always have some ready when I'm making pizza or pasta.

onions
3 
garlic
10 cloves
carrots
3 
tomatoes
3 kg
oregano
3 tbsp
thyme
2 tbsp
dried basil
2 tbsp
dried rosemary
3 tbsp
onion powder
3 tsp
garlic powder
3 tsp
salt
3 tsp
pepper

Steps

6 steps
1
Process onions, garlic and carrots in a food processor. If you don't have one, chop everything finely.
2
Chop tomatoes. I used organic tomatoes from a local producer, and since they had very thin skin I did not peel them beforehand, however you may want to do it depending on your tomatoes.
3
Add everything to a large pot.
4
Cook for at least an hour. Cook time will depend on the desired thickness of your sauce.
5
If there are large chunks in your sauce, you can blend it using an immersion blender or a regular blender, but make sure they can stand hot liquids. I like to leave some chunks.
6
I had enough sauce for 8 jars of 370ml. I pasturized them and will store them in my pantry. You can freeze the sauce in meal-size portions and thaw when necessary.
