Smoked Tomato Sauce

Simple to make, and a ton of flavour, this Smoked Tomato sauce will be different from all tomato sauce you’ve tasted before.


4 large, ripe tomatoes (I used heirloom tomatoes)

3 cloves of garlic, halved

¼ white onion, diced

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

Salt & Pepper


Quarter tomatoes and place on an aluminum tray

Smoke tomatoes for 1.5 hours at 200°F with hickory bisquettes

Heat olive oil on low-medium heat in a medium sized saucepan

Add garlic and onion and sauté until translucent

Add smoked tomatoes to the saucepan and simmer on low heat for 1 hour, or until sufficiently reduced. Stir on a regular basis to keep sauce from sticking to the base of the pan

Add balsamic vinegar and salt & pepper to taste

I prefer my tomato sauce with more texture, but if you prefer a smoother sauce, puree the sauce in a blender or with a hand blender to desired texture
