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