This is a standard red sauce which can be used in a lot of Greek dishes. You can freeze it in portions for later and I like to fill ice-cube trays too because sometimes I only need a smaller amount.If you like thick sauce leave it the way it is but I prefer to put it in the blender after it's cooled a little for a nice smooth sauce and it's easier to fill the ice trays. Removing the skin of the tomato is optional. Instead of chopping them you can use a grater and the skin will be left behind.***Sauce will keep for up to four months in the freezer***

How to Make Red Sauce- Greek


  1. Fry onion, garlic, red pepper and carrots until they're softened a little. Add wine and simmer so that the alcohol evaporates. Add the rest of the ingredients, bring to a boil and then simmer for about an hour to an hour and a half. For a smoother sauce, let cool a little and put in the blender.
