Backyard Blend Marinara

Prep time 1-minute         Cook time 1 hour

  • 2 pounds of ripe tomatoes (vine ripe or plum recommended)
  • 4 cloves of crushed garlic and pealed
  • 1 cup of vegetable stock
  • 2 tablespoons of Backyard Blend
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil


Pre-heat oven to 400.

Combine all ingredients in a 10”-12” high sided stainless steel or cast-iron skillet, making sure the tomatoes are packed in tightly.  Place skillet into the oven and roast for one hour on medium top rack of oven.  Check in on the tomatoes every 20 minutes or so, make sure there continues to be fluid in the bottom of the pan but allowing the tops of the tomatoes to get dark brown.  After an hour the tomatoes should be browned on top with the juice roughly half way up. Pull the tomatoes out of the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes, then carefully add tomatoes, garlic and remaining juice to a blender or food processor and purée.  Enjoy!
