Ingredients

  • 4 pounds tomatoes, quartered and seeded
  • 2 cups low-sodium vegetable broth

Preparation

  1. Working in a blender in 2 batches, puree the tomatoes with the vegetable broth, olive oil, tomato paste, red wine vinegar and sugar until very smooth. Transfer to a bowl, season with salt and pepper and refrigerate until chilled, about 2 hours.
