BALSAMIC TOMATO SAUCE

Vinegars can be an exceptional ingredient when creating a lean yet tasty sauce or dish. There are quite a variety out there! Some of my favorites include balsamic, champagne and red wine vinegars. Experiment to see what flavors and brands you like best on salads, pasta dishes, as well as with this sauce. There is a fun thickening method I included here, of which you can opt in or out :). This sauce works great roasting with veggies, tofu, chicken and fish.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 cups canned diced tomatoes no sodium added
  • 1/2 cup chicken or veggie stock or broth low sodium
  • 1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Optional: Beurre manie= 1 Tablespoon flour + 1 Tablespoon butter softened
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • In small sauce pan, add olive oil through stock. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  • Once boiling, lower heat to a simmer. You can just let it simmer here for 10–15 minutes, until desired thickness. Or, for some additional luster to your sauce: while sauce is simmering, in a small bowl mix flour and butter with a fork to form a smooth paste.
  • Then roll a teaspoon-size amounts of the paste into balls. Add one ball to sauce, increase heat and allow the mixture to return to a boil, and cook for at least 1 minute to thicken.
  • If your sauce is not as thick as you’d like, add a bit more beurre manie.
  • Serve over or roast with any veggie, protein, polenta, rice or pasta.
  • It makes approximately 2 cups sauce; about 1/4 cup per serving.
