Sungold Tomato Sauce


Another no cook tomato sauce for the win!  Originally I intended to roast 4 cups of sungold tomatoes and turn them into a roasted tomato pesto.  But.. after a grocery run, making my weekly batch of kombucha, starting a sauerkraut ferment, making a green bean tomato salad, and cooking/canning 10+ cups strawberry rhubarb pie filling I decided to go easy on myself.  I should add in I was doing all of this while dealing with a very grumpy and sick kid.  It was a marathon kitchen session to say the least but I was in my groove enjoying myself.


I really really loved my no cook tomato sauce from last week and decided to run with this idea again.  This version is pretty much pesto ingredients with plenty of fresh tomatoes to turn it into a sauce.  These sungold tomatoes taste like candy.  It’s unreal how sweet they are.  I cannot remember tasting a tomato sweeter.  Seriously, no joking aside, straight heaven in your mouth.  I would go as far as saying these sungold babies would convert a non-tomato eater into a tomato lover.  As I’ve said before nothing beats garden fresh!  Here’s a not so great photo of my bounty..

Sungold Tomato Sauce

A no cook tomato sauce using sungold tomatoes. Garlic, basil, pine nuts, tomatoes, olive oil, and salt. A perfect combination of flavors!


  • 4 cups, sungold tomatoes
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 cup basil leaves
  • 1 cup pine nuts
  • salt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil


  1. Place garlic in a food processor. Pulse until well minced.
  2. Add the tomatoes, basil leaves, pine nuts, and season generously with salt. Again pulse until everything is well blended.
  3. While running the processor slowly drizzle in the olive oil.


I made a double batch which gave me 2 pints worth of sauce. If you'd like to make enough for 1 meal, I'd recommend halving the recipe.
