  2. Mix tomatoes and garlic using a blender until you have smooth uniform liquid.
  3. Add basil and mix a bit more, until pieces of basil get small.
  4. Add tomato paste and olive oil, thoroughly mix using a spoon.

Notes & tips

You can substitute basil with mint, it also tastes great.

Keep the basil flowers, and add them when you make your evening tea next time.

The easiest way to peel garlic is to smash it: put a clove of garlic on a cutting board, put your chef’s knife on top of it so the blade side lays on the clove, and hit the side of the knife with your hand. Now you could peel the clove.
