  1. Set the timer on the Soup Maker to 10 minutes on ‘SAUTE’
  2. Add the olive oil, followed by the onion, chillies and garlic. Cook until the onions have softened, stirring occasionally.
  3. Once the onions are soft, add the oregano, basil, capers, sugar and lastly the tinned tomatoes.
  4. Set the timer to 30 minutes on ‘HIGH’, stirring occasionally. With 15 minutes remaining on the timer, remove the measuring cup and replace at a slight angle to allow steam to escape easily. This will help the sauce thicken.
