Barbecue Sauce and Quick Summer Gnocchi

I had never made either of these before but a glut of tomatoes means trying to find as many ways as possible for using them.

Barbecue Sauce: Recipe makes 1 x 500 g bottle (I doubled this to store)

1 kg tomatoes

1 onion

2 tablespoons olive oil

3 cloves garlic

60g brown sugar

4 tbsp malt vinegar

2 tbspn worcester sauce

1 tbspn each of tomato paste, mustard powder and curry powder

1 tsp honey

Saute chopped onion in the oil in large pan till soft, add tomatoes and cook until soft and mushy (Do not add water). Cool and put through whiz or blender and process till smooth. Return to pan and add all other ingredients and simmer till thick (about 30 mins) stirring occasionally. Image

Quick Summer Gnocchi:

I cheated and purchased ready made gnocchi because I wanted a really quick meal for me (my husband doesn’t like gnocchi)

Fry cherry tomatoes, capsicum and chopped onion in olive oil. Add torn basil, salt and pepper. Cook a packet of gnocchi, drain and add to pain. Stir in a splash of cream (or yogurt) and sprinkle with grated parmesan.
