Serves 4

What You Need:

½ cup soaked cashews
½ cup water
2 (14-ounce) cans whole tomatoes
7 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
Olive oil, for frying
1 onion, finely diced
1 tablespoon tomato purée
2 cups vegetable stock

What You Do:

1. Into a blender, add soaked cashew and water and bleund until creamy. Set aside.

2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Onto a baking sheet, pour canned tomatoes, with the juices, and break apart. Scatter garlic over tomatoes and season with salt. Bake for 40 minutes until juices have slightly reduced.

3. In a large saucepan over a medium heat, warm olive oil. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes until softened. Add the tomato purée and cook for 2 minutes.
