Ungrateful's Thoughts

This sauce gets down to basics with traditional ingredients. The sweetness of the figs balances the acid of the tomatoes

The secret is letting it sit overnight in the fridge so the tomatoes and oil can work together.

Super easy to whip up the day before you serve it over spiral cut veggie noodles, chopped broccoli, or any other vege you like. Crumbled rye manna bread makes this a heavier, warmer dish for fall or winter.

Serve at room temperature over ice cold veges for a textural treat.

Right on, TomsMom!

There are plenty of fresh tomatoes to use up around here and plain raw tomatoes aren't a favorite. This is a good way to go through them.

What I like about this recipe is that it doesn't rely on dried tomatoes. Thank you for the recipe!

Ah, but the agave isn't raw! My mother used to throw a whole carrot in her cooked sauce to sweeten it. When the sauce was done the cooked carrot was pulled out and a coveted treat among us kids. :)

Thanks!

The pig is beautiful. She's a thrift store score, a music box that turns and plays "Top of the World"

Such a feelin's comin' over me

There is wonder in most everything I see

Not a cloud in the sky

Got the sun in my eyes

And I won't be surprised if it's a dream

Everything I want the world to be

Is now coming true especially for me

And the reason is clear

It's because you are here

You're the nearest thing to heaven that I've seen

I'm on the top of the world lookin' down on creation

And the only explanation I can find

Is the love that I've found ever since you've been around

Your love's put me at the top of the world

LOL
