Which Tomatoes To Go With? Red Or Green For Your Tomato Pasta Sauce

To me, if you cultivate tomatoes, you undoubtedly have your sights set on the precise time when the fruit is ready to be picked. Remember, it should be pliable, juicy, and in the majority of instances, red. It’s possible that you won’t want to use any of those vanishingly rare individuals in your green tomato cooking. You would rather put it off till the colder months get ahead instead.

Or, perhaps, you already have! The market may offer a variety of green tomatoes as I have in my garden. It is true that green tomatoes may not receive nearly the same amount of acclaim as red ones. However, they are still delightful and even refreshing to consume and highly adaptable.

  • First, wash and chop the tomatoes roughly.
  • Then put the ingredients in a food processor, but not too fine; they shouldn’t become a puree. In case there are a lot of tomatoes, process them in batches.
  • Once you’ve chopped the Rocambole garlic, you’ll only need to cook it for 30 seconds in olive oil. Keep stirring so the garlic doesn’t get brown.
  • Pour in a little vegetable stock and green tomatoes. A little water and something like tomato paste or powder should do.
  • Then stir in sugar, salt, red chili flakes, and the roughly chopped or torn basil leaves.
  • Pour milk over the sauce to make it less acidic.
  • Also, cover and simmer for about 20-25 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • If you want the sauce to be smooth, make sure you stir it every few minutes or so. Green tomato sauce tends to settle on the bottom of the pan much quicker than regular tomato sauce. So, make sure you stir it.
  • Besides, you can add a splash of water or whole milk if the sauce becomes too thick.
  • Adding shredded Parmigiano-Reggiano, Rocambole garlic, oil, basil, salt, pepper, and red chili flakes to taste complete the sauce.
