Easy Roasted Tomato Sauce is a healthy and simple way to enjoy fresh tomatoes months after picking them. Freezing 16 ounce bags of the sauce makes using them later so convenient!

I went to the wet market across the street to grab tomatoes for homemade pizza sauce. As I walked up she was unpacking a large styrofoam box full of cherry tomatoes that smelled like a tomato garden. Instead of buying 1 kilo I bought the whole box- Almost 6 kilos of Cherry Tomatoes! So after using 1-1/2 kilos to make pizza sauce I set ahead to roast the rest for a Easy Roasted Tomato Sauce that I planned to freeze.

I’m not big on canning because it’s so much work, when freezing them is so much easier! Call me lazy or whatever… I have 4 freezers. Anyways, I’ve been slowly working my way through my overflowing freezers, so since I had the space for the sauce, I may as well keep them filled to capacity!

After roasting the tomatoes, throw them in the blender and blend until they’re as smooth as you like. I prefer a slightly chunkier sauce- especially for tomato soup and marinara sauce so I didn’t over-blend my Easy Roasted Tomato Sauce. But if you prefer a smoother texture, blend for at least 2-3 minutes.

After you blend the sauce, pour 16 ounces (2 cups) of sauce to each bag, then store in your freezer for up to 4 months. Although I don’t think these are going to last that long in my freezer!

I can’t wait to make this recipe for Roasted Tomato Soup tomorrow for dinner! And a bag of this sauce will work in a pinch when I need to make spaghetti, It’s just as easy as opening a can of spaghetti sauce, but so much tastier! I promise!

Ingredients

  • 1 head garlic, peeled
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 6-7 pounds Cherry Tomatoes
  • Salt and Pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 250F.
  2. Toss together all of the ingredients.
  3. Pour onto a greased baking sheet and arrange the tomatoes top-side down.
  4. Bake for 4 - 4 1/2 hours. The tomatoes are ready when they are soft and withered.
  5. Cool. Then pulse in a blender, until the tomatoes are crushed. The longer you puree, the smoother it will be. I wanted a crushed texture sauce so I pulsed 5 times then blended the tomatoes for 30 seconds.
  6. Pour the sauce into a quart-sized Ziplock bag.

Notes

Freezer safe for up to 4 months.
