Roasted Tomato-Coconut Sauce

Roasted Tomato-Coconut Sauce

This easy sauce, which uses slow-roasted tomatoes, goes great with fish or tofu served on top of a grain (rice, coucous, anything). Just pan-sear your protein very quickly, and you’re ready to eat. If you don’t like tomato skins, blend the tomatoes before you add them, or use an immersion blender on the finished sauce.

  1. Step 1

    In a medium pot, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic and ginger and cook, stirring, until the onions are translucent, about 3 minutes. Stir in red pepper flakes and lemon zest, then add tomatoes and coconut milk.
  2. Step 2

    Reduce heat to low and cook until mixture just begins to simmer. Immediately remove from heat and season with lemon juice and salt to taste. Serve over fish, tofu or rice. (If you’re cooking tofu, press it between two plates for a half-hour first to get the water out.)
