Pork Tenderloin with a Ginger Tomato Sauce (serves 4)
Tomato and basil, tomato and herbes de Provence, tomato and red pepper flakes – all good combinations. I hadn’t thought about putting tomato and ginger together. It went well with the pork (might make a good soup if diluted with more veg. broth/stock). Mashed potatoes needed to mop up juices!
