Staple Recipe: Luc's Favourite Tomato Sauce

This is a recipe adapted from The Baby's Table by Brenda Bradshaw and Lauren Bramley and just a fantastic easy recipe for baby. After 10 months of age I tried several tomato sauce recipes and this was by far Luc's favourite and I have been making it regularly ever since. It is extremely versatile and easy to make and can be used on pastina, pasta (by itself or with add-ins), as a dipping sauce, as a tasty puree by adding a little to a pureed vegetable + cheese of your choice, add a little to a stew -- the possibilities are endless. I try to always keep a little frozen in Baby Cubes to have on hand. 

Tomato Sauce

- 1 14 oz can diced tomatoes
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 plump shallot, finely diced
- 2 tbsp tomato paste
- 14 cup water
- 1/3 cup chopped fresh basil

In a frying pan, heat olive oil over low heat; saute shallot until translucent. 

Add tomatoes, tomato paste and water; bring to a boil. Turn down the heat and add the basil. Simmer, partially covered for 30 min. stirring occasionally. 

Makes 5ish baby cubes

* some brands of tomato paste are gluten-free, some aren't, if that's a concern
