Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 300°. Line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with foil. Place tomatoes on pan. Drizzle with oil. Sprinkle with smoked paprika and kosher salt; toss to coat. Roast, uncovered, until softened, about 45 minutes. Let cool. Transfer tomatoes to a blender or food processor. Cover and blend until a smooth puree.

  • Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat until foaming. Add onion, celery and fennel. Cook until tender and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic; cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add cream, buttermilk and herbs; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until reduced by half, about 10 minutes.

  • Add the pureed tomatoes, water and wine. Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, 30 minutes, to develop flavor and reduce slightly. Let cool slightly. Working in batches, puree in a blender or food processer until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
