  • 2 Tbsp Tomato paste
  • 1 1/2 tsp Dried basil
  • 1 1/2 tsp Dried tarragon

  • 1/2-1 tsp Salt to taste (start with less and add more, we like 1 tsp)
  • 1/4 tsp Black pepper
  • 1 Head of garlic


  • Heat 1 tbsp of the oil on saute mode. Add in the onion and cook until browned, about 5 minutes.
  • Add in all the ingredients except the remaining oil and garlic and stir until well mixed.
  • Cut the tips off the garlic head and peel off the thin, papery skin.Rub the remaining oil into the top of the garlic.
  • Wrap the garlic in two layers of tinfoil to make a packet and place it into the Instant Pot

  • Add as much garlic as you want into the blender and then blend then sauce until smooth. Season to taste with salt.
