Making foods that require stirring while cooking is very difficult and tiring because you have to stand before the stove for the entire cooking time and stir the food with the risk of having a scald. However, a bread maker can do the stirring on behalf of us for some of these recipes. The tomato sauce recipe below is one where we only prepare the ingredients, and the bread maker takes care of stirring and cooking.
You can use tomato sauce over pasta, spaghetti, pizza, chicken, fish, or any other meat. You can also use it as a dipping sauce to eat with garlic bread, chicken wings, fish sticks etc. Additionally, tomato sauce can also be simmered with some egg and converted into a delicious breakfast dish called “menemen”.
Let’s learn how to make tomato sauce in a bread machine and have some in our refrigerator for our needs!
