  • 1 tbsp good quality olive oil
  • 1 large red onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp dried basil

  3. Add in tomato puree and whole tomatoes. Using the back of a spoon or a potato masher, lightly mash the mixture to break up the whole tomatoes, leaving some pieces.

  5. Take off heat and stir in parsley and chia seeds.
