This is very rich and super good! It’s looks are deceiving! I made a smaller portion at first just playing around with leftovers and both me and my boyfriend had a “ommagawd” reaction so I tried to get it again and write down portions. Feel free to start with smaller amounts of spices and adjust up.

Makes about 4 cups
This sauce gets down to basics with traditional ingredients.
The sweetness of the figs balances the acid of the tomatoes
The secret is letting it sit overnight in the fridge so the tomatoes and oil can work together.
Super easy to whip up the day before you serve it over spiral cut veggie noodles, chopped broccoli, or any other vege you like.
Crumbled rye manna bread makes this a heavier, warmer dish for fall or winter.
Serve at room temperature over ice cold veges for a textural treat.

the autumn olive is usually found wild during late summer and fall, it is very prolific. it can be very tart sometimes and “turn’s your mouth inside out.” that is why it is sometimes important to add syrups to this topping. the berry has little silver specks on it and very high in lycopine. it is found only in the wild right now so you may have to research it before you harvest it.
This tastes just like a classic cream of mushroom soup. Thick, creamy and delicious. The real version of this soup used to be my favourite when I was young. I just made this on a whim so the measurements are from memory and may not be accurate. Taste the soup as you’re making it to be sure the measurements are to your liking. I hope you enjoy.
