This sauce is a natural match for sweet, tender carrots.
- Olive oil
- Large carrots (1Il.), cut into matchsticks
- Grated fresh ginger
- 28-oz can whole peeled tomatoes, crushed well by hand
- loosely packed fresh basil leaves, divided
Heat oil in Dutch oven on medium-high. Add carrots, and season with salt, if desired. Cook 5 minutes, stirring once or twice, or until carrots are crisp-tender and lightly browned. Stir in ginger, then tomatoes and 3 large basil leaves. Bring to a simmer, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook 10 to 12 minutes, or until carrots are fork-tender. Stir in remaining basil leaves.
