Genius Tomato Sauce

Tomato SauceThis is one of the only things you’ll need to learn how to cook as a student. Once we’ve shown you how to make it we’ll give you a list of 5 other things you can make with it, that’s why it’s genius. You’ll need to go to the greengrocers or the market for a couple of ingredients, but you can get everything else from Poundland.


(enough for 4)

  • Garlic
  • Celery
  • Onion.
  • Tinned Tomatoes 400g
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Olive or Vegetable Oil


  1. Finely chop one onion, one clove of garlic, and one celery stick.
  2. Gently fry them in a small amount of oil for a few minutes or until softened but not brown.
  3. Add the tomatoes and season with a pinch of salt and a few grinds of pepper. Simmer this for about 15 minutes. Simmer for another minute and it’s done. If you’re not using it straight away, let it cool and store in the fridge.

Now the fun begins. We stock all the ingredients to make these meals & snacks except fresh veg and a few extras like some herbs – back to the market for these. Cooking for yourself is fun and you’ll save a fortune on takeaways.
