Homemade Marinara Sauce





Trying to live an unprocessed lifestyle does not make eating quick or easy. Last night I wanted to make my cauliflower pizza again and decided on trying the marinara sauce a bit different with a bit more basil and less time on the stove. I was able to prepare it in just 20 minutes without resorting to the canned tomatoes that almost every recipe I've found online calls for.

For the sauce I basically sautéed onions and garlic and then added diced tomatoes along with some that I mixed in my Magic Bullet with a little bit of water for a base. Then I added some fresh herbs and voila. In just 20 minutes I had a homemade sauce that was free of as much sodium as possible as well as extra chemicals.

All the ingredients ready to go. Fresh basil is key when making marinara sauce
The final product. Once it cooled down I mixed it in my Magic Bullet to make it a bit smoother and easier to spread on the pizza crust

The end result was a fresh sauce that allowed the flavors of all the ingredients to be savored instead of just a bland orange base that most canned sauces contain.  The complete recipe with step by step guides will be available very soon when I announce something exciting that I'm doing with two of my favorite people, my cousins Jenniffer and Doris.

In the meantime stay healthy and away from processed food as much as possible!
