  • 1/2 large onion, cut into large wedges
  • 2 x 400g can tomatoes, (whole peeled or crushed)
  • 1 1/2 cups water, vegetable or chicken stock
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt, or more to taste




1. Melt butter over medium heat in a large saucepan.


2. Add onion wedges, water, cans of tomatoes with their juices, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Bring to a simmer. Cook, uncovered, for about 40 minutes. Stir occasionally and add additional salt as needed.
