  • 1 400 g tin of tomatoes
  • 1 large organic carrot - scrubbed but not peeled and roughly chopped.
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • leaves from 3 sprigs thyme
  • a small piece of dried dulse about the size of dessertspoon
  • half a red chilli optional
  • a dash of tamari gluten free soy sauce
  • a glug of extra virgin olive oil


  1. Throw all ingredients into a high speed blender and blitz on fast for about 30 seconds (I put mine on the 35 second cycle, whilst grating cheese for the pasta). nb if you have a soup facility you can blend for 6 mins or so until piping hot.

  2. Stir into hot pasta and top with cheese if desired.

Recipe Notes

Can also be easily heated in a pan if desired.
