The French Tomato Sauce Is All You Need For A French-Themed Meal

This Sauce Tomat is one of the five ‘Mother Sauces’ of French cuisine. Lots of veggies, bacon and everything put together with such ease, this French Tomato Sauce can jazz up your regular meal to something quite exotic.

 

Serves: 4 – 5

Prep Time: 15 mins

Cook Time: 50 – 55 mins

Elements

Fat from 6-7 bacon strips

60 grams onions, diced

60 grams carrot, diced

30 grams flour

30 grams butter

1 kg tomatoes, diced

700 ml white chicken stock

1 clove garlic, crushed

Salt & pepper, to taste

Formula

On medium-low heat, add the fat from the bacon with one tablespoon of water to a saucepan and cook for about three minutes. Add the onions and carrots and cook for another five minutes.

Mix in the flour, stir well and then, add in the butter.

Next add the tomatoes, chicken stock, crushed garlic and simmer until it reduces to a thick consistency (about 40 minutes).

Remove and pour the contents though a sieve, collecting the liquid in a bowl.

Adjust the salt & pepper to taste and serve. Traditionally served with seafood, especially fish.
