Delicious and Simple No Tomato Sauce Recipe
After watching my family devour pasta with a rich tomato sauce or smother a pizza base and add delicious toppings I decided I needed to find a sauce that would be ok for my stomach. Tomato, garlic, and onion are known for aggravating the stomach due to the high acid content, so an alternative was required.
I looked at various recipes that had no tomato but so many of them had other ingredients I also couldn’t have.
So after lots of messing about with different flavours I found one that worked and its actually really delicious, as well as looking just like tomato sauce.
So here is a step by step guide to what’s in it, I would love to know what you think.
1 Courgette (Zucchini)
5 medium carrots
2 sticks of celery
2 plain beetroots
1 teaspoon of Oregano
1 Bay leaf
A pinch of Himalayan pink salt
Peel the carrots and courgettes and chop into chunks, chop the celery and the beetroot.
Add all the vegetables to a large saucepan with a teaspoon of Oregano, then add the water.
Bring to the boil and then simmer for 30-40 minutes until all vegetables are soft.
Then pour the mixture into the blender and blitz until completely smooth.
Enjoy with pasta or as a pizza base, basically with anything you would normally have a tomato sauce with. Delicious.
