Tiny Cherry Tomato Sauce


Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Yield: Makes 1 1/2 cups tomato sauce

Tiny Cherry Tomato Sauce


  1. 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 1/2 cup onion, minced
  3. 1/4 cup sherry vinegar
  4. 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
  5. 1/4 cup chicken broth
  6. 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  7. 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  8. Sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste


Heat a large sauté pan over medium-high heat and swirl in olive oil. Add onion, and sauté 3-5 minutes, until golden brown. Pour in vinegar and scrape up any bits stuck to the bottom of the pan.

When liquid is almost gone, add tomatoes, broth, tomato paste and oregano. Cook for 4-5 minutes, swirling often. If tomatoes have not burst, press on them gently with a spatula to burst them and cook for another minute. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
