  • 1 large carrot, chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp kosher salt or to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste



  1. Place tomatoes upside down on large baking sheet. Place garlic cloves in a corner of the baking sheet. Drizzle 1 tablespoon oil mainly over garlic, then over tomatoes. Roast in preheated 425F oven until garlic is soft, about 15 minutes. Remove garlic to plate. Continue to roast tomatoes until slightly charred and skins are split, about 10 minutes. Cool on baking sheet.
  2. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in large pan on medium. Add onions, carrot and celery. Turn heat to medium-low. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened but not browned, 10 minutes.
  3. Squeeze garlic from skins into onion mixture. Core and peel tomatoes. Add tomatoes and their juices to pan. Scrape juices from baking sheet into pan. Stir in water, cilantro, sugar, salt and pepper. Bring to boil on medium-high heat. Turn heat to low, cover and simmer 30 minutes.
  4. Cool briefly. Purée in blender.
