How to Make It

Step 1    

In a medium saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil. Add the onion, garlic and kimchi and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until softened and golden, about 8 minutes. Scrape the mixture into a food processor and add the tomatoes; puree until smooth.

Step 2    

In the saucepan, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons oil. Add the tomato paste and sugar and cook, stirring, until lightly caramelized, about 3 minutes. Add the tomato mixture and basil, cover and cook over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 30 minutes. Season with salt.

Make Ahead

The marinara can be refrigerated for 2 weeks.
