Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large onion, finely diced
  • 1 clove garlic, thinly sliced
  • 4 cups canned tomato purée
  • 1 tightly packed cup chopped fresh basil leaves
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat.

Add the onion and garlic and allow them to sweat, stirring frequently, for about 10 minutes, or until translucent.

Add the tomato purée and one-half of the basil and bring the mixture to a simmer.

Immediately lower the heat and cook it, at a bare simmer, stirring frequently, for about 40 minutes, or until 90 percent of the moisture has evaporated.

Stir in the remaining basil and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Remove the pan from the heat and allow it to cool.

Store the mixture, covered and refrigerated, for up to 5 days, or freeze it, tightly covered and labeled, for up to 3 months.

    @Shmoogu it's related to a fondue as it's a sauce much like a cheese fondue is a cheese sauce. It is tomato sauce. if you want to dip stuff into it by all means go for it. It is a great rendition of a tomato sauce.

    You call this a Fondue so I'm assuming you are using it as a dip for something like vegetables,meats ? or what? Ideas???? Thanx, Shmoogu
