1          Medium Carrot (peeled and chopped finely)
3tbsp    Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1tsp     Sugar
200ml   Water
100ml   Orange Juice (juice from a packet with 100% fresh juice will be fine)

  2. Add Onions, Garlic and Carrots.
  3. Cook until onions look transparent and lightly brown.
  4. Add the peeled tomatoes, lightly crushed with your hands.
  5. Add the water and salt and pepper to taste.

  • You can double this recipe and keep half of it frozen in the freezer for up to 3 months.
  • To freeze, wait until completely cooled and put inside freezer bags or freezer containers and seal properly before freezing.
  • To defrost you can either use defrost settings on a microwave oven or keep the container or freezer bag in the refrigerator overnight. 
  • Heat and simmer for 5-7 minutes before serving.
