Sugar free tomato sauce

Were you an eat-anything-and-everything sort of kid or a little miss/mr fussy?


Well I was what would now be my worst nightmare – a very very fussy kid. While mostly, I’m pretty sure I was just annoying, to me, there were some benefits.

I never had tomato sauce – even homemade sugar free tomato sauce.

While my sister used to smother it on everything, I hated the thought of it and even now the smell doesn’t really appeal to me.

It’s probably one of the only good habits to come out of my fussy days.

I know a lot of people love tomato sauce (or ketchup) though.

Personally, I’m not that keen on the store-bought version which usually contains high fructose corn syrup (you can read about why high fructose corn syrup is no good for you here) so I made my own to serve with party sausage rolls for my oldest son’s first Birthday.

I don’t know why I hadn’t made it before because it was seriously simple.

You literally throw all the ingredients in a pan, heat it up and leave it for 20ish minutes and it’s done.

Sugar free tomato sauce - delicious and no nasties!

That’s it.

Not one person asked me about it, ever Will or my dad so my assumption is that it tastes just like the real deal with no nasties added.

Success! Enjoy!
