Cooking Instructions for Sous Vide Barely Bound Tomatoes

For the Tomatoes

In a skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat.

Add the garlic and shallot and cook, stirring, until softened but not browned. Add the tomatoes, horseradish, bay leaf, lemon, and salt. Cook, gently, until the tomatoes are saucy.

Using an immersion blender or upright blender, puree until smooth, then transfer to a large vacuum bag. Add the cherry tomatoes and seal on high.

Cook sous vide at 150°F (65.5°C) for 1 hour. Transfer back to a sauce pan or serve from the bag.

Serve warm.
