Heat the tablespoon of vegetable broth in a large skillet over medium high heat. When hot, pour in puree all at once and stir constantly for 4 to 5 minutes until sauce gets darker and thicker. Add the 2 cups of broth, return to a boil, reduce heat to medium and simmer until thick enough to coat a spoon, about 10 minutes more. Add salt to taste.
