A quick and very tasty raw tomato sauce whipped up in a Zyliss Easy Pull Food Processor.
Ok all. Drum roll………
Time to introduce an exclusive OH recipe on the blog. Yeap this herby, mustardy raw tomato sauce is all him.
It is one that he uses when he has slightly under ripe tomatoes in his batch because the mustard, garlic and parsley add some seriously good flavour to them. And better still it is another one of the brain to plate in less than 20 min recipes.
Well, faced with a ton of tomatoes and short on time, I finally decided to learn how to make this herby tomato sauce in my new EasyPull manual food processor from Zyliss, which I will tell you about further down. It took me all of 5 min to prepare and lasted us for two whole meals. So win, win right?
Here is how to make a raw tomato sauce the easy, peasy way.

Now let me shout from the rooftop about the EasyPull manual food processor from Zyliss. My new food ‘baby’ works with an easy pull handle action to dice, chop, blend or puree your food. The more you pull, the finer the food gets diced or chopped etc. It is as simple as doing 3-5 pulls for a quick coarse chop and 8-10 pulls for a finer chop.
It also has a unique chopping design where the food is between two helper arms. This keeps the food in the path of the twins blades for a consistent chop. Awesome right – when we all know how annoying it is to have to stop our food processor to scrap down the un-chopped vegetables that somehow always clump together at the top?
Freddy took the girls camping ‘ down the garden’ for a fun bonding session – whilst I stayed indoors to ‘erm erm’ be able to bring them a lovely breakfast in the morning. As I wandered down to the tent, I could hear Freddy talking the girls through whizzing up their very own camping pesto. My youngest was holding the food processor bowl whilst my eldest was happily doing the pull action. Let’s just say smoothies, croissants and pesto make a rather quirky breakfast.
I really want to send one of these to my folks in Sierra Leone. How brilliant would it be for them to be able to quickly whiz up an onion and a chilli without the need of pounding away such small quantities in a mortar and pestle? It has also got the green factor going for it as it is hand powered.
One thing you have to be careful about is that you can’t submerge the lid in water as this might affect the pull mechanism. The blade and bowl on the other hand are dishwasher safe.
Check out the video of the Zyliss EasyPull food processor in action and see how handy it is for making anything from cocktails to smoothies and salsa to salad dressing. And at a recommended retail price of £25, this is a handy little gadget to have.
